NYOBC Kit and White Balance

I owe a big thanks to Lisa for encouraging us to learn how to adjust our white balance...because this is what my pictures normally look like:
BUT THIS is what they REALLY look like! The blue haze is gone :)
She posted it over a month ago, but a month ago, I was doing good just to read blogs...I certainly didn't feel like reading my camera manual!

I've had this project completed for a while now, just too lazy & busy to get it up on the blog. The products came in one of the kits from last month's book club meeting. There wasn't a lot of guidance on the project so this is one I've done pretty much on my own.
I almost didn't post the project because I made a HUGE mistake :( This page is upside down and I didn't realize it until after I covered it in Modge Podge *sniff sniff*. But I wanted to share the project with my sister since it's about her boys! ;) This also happens to be my favorite picture because of the expression on my middle nephew's face - fits him perfectly!
I had lots of fun because I used my Silhouette for so many of the embellishments. LOVE that machine!
The ribbon holding it all together-Yes, those are strips of denim in there. I never would have thought to use denim but it was easy to use and looks great!

Thanks for looking :)

*tears* They've grown so much! Wait till you see!

Yay for white balance!

The project looks like it was a lot of fun. It really matches the energy of the photos. :-) Great job!
