I'm not super techy when it comes to messing with photos. I've never "shopped" a photo, as it were. (Why do they call it PhotoShop
? It has nothing to do with shopping. Outta be PhotoTweak. Just my opinion...)
But recently I have
made mischief with a few photos - and I think I might be addicted now. The photos I want to share also relate to two giveaways you can enter, so read on!
What the Dog Ate Giveaway
Thanks so much to Taryn over at A Tail of Two Cardis
who wrote a lovely post about my novel, and is hosting a giveaway for a copy right now. All you have to do to enter is visit her post here
before Thursday, April 25th and leave a comment about a funny thing that your dog (or another pet or even you
) ate. It's open to folks beyond just the US, so hop on over there.
Now, when you do, you'll see that Taryn decided to "revise" the cover of What the Dog Ate
, substituting one of her handsome pups for my usual cover model:
|Too cute, right??|
This of course made me wonder: "Why didn't I ever think of that?!?"
So, here you go - Rita as cover girl:
|She makes a cute cover girl, IMHO!|
If you are wondering what the dog ate, that's a little spot of melted cheese on her nose.
Celebrate Jeffie's Birthday!
Meanwhile, Jeffie over at the Talking Dogs
blog is celebrating his 7th birthday, and stretching out the celebrating over the entire month of April. (You know how to pawrty, Jeffie!) Part of the celebration involves a giveaway for a $25 Amazon gift card if you submit a party pic of your pup by April 27. Check out this post here
re: entering. The winner will be chosen in a random drawing, so go on over and join the fun.
I can't resist taking fun pics of Rita, so we had to enter. I was able to doctor up the pictures I sent with some captions using the free website PicMonkey
. (Thanks to Taryn -again
- this time for the heads up about PicMonkey!) There's a paid subscription version, but you can do some fun things even with the free version.
So, here are some outtakes of the pics I took of Rita, and at the end you'll see the final captioned shots I sent in for Jeffie's pawrty.
|One outtake - she's drinking a "The Vixen" beer|
|Another outtake - the party "aftermath"|
|One more outtake - I put some cheese on the lid!|
And here are the 2 I submitted:
|I had to put a treat in the lampshade to get her in there, of course!|
Now go out there and have some fun with your photos! And enter some fun giveaways!
Happy Monday Mischief!
