DOM Week 20...

This week's theme is change. Not one of my favorite things. My mom and sister can certainly attest to that! Given my dislike for change I did surprisingly well as a teacher, adapting day to day with all of the changes that can happen in a school. The changes I dislike the most are probably getting older (myself and my loved ones), gaining weight ( I should just be able to pick my weight and have it stay constant!) and the weather!

Now I only have three cards to do to catch up!

Here is an iris that bloomed in my front garden this week. I did a little tweaking in PSE. Mostly giving the background a little texture. I have another one blooming by our light pole. I love irises. They remind me of my grandma. She had loads of them growing in her yard.

Love your DOM card!
I love how you photoshopped your photo, you can almost feel the texture in the background without really seeing it...does that make sense?
