They just don't understand

No one I know understands my fascination and excitement for the pictures I take, edit and scrap. Wade will look at an edit and say he likes the original better. From Amanda I get either an "Uh huh" or an "OMG mom, delete that now". My coworkers have heard enough about my hobby that they generally try and quickly change the subject. Duke is possibly the only one who shows the slightest interest. Of course I have to hold one of those doggy bacon snacks in front of the computer screen first. But when I do boy does his tail wag over what he sees.
Any way, the other day, while I was hanging out in the parking lot at work (a.k.a the smokers lounge) I pulled out the camera and started playing. This was of course during my lunch. I spotted this dirty old piece of cardboard that I was just fascinated with. I was in awe of the colors and textures that I saw. OK so I'm a bit on the weird side, who isn't? I HAD to take a picture of it.

When I put the picture on the computer I started playing around and layering other pictures on and came up with this.


Then I did a layout of my whole parking lot experience.

Everything used for this layout I made myself with the exception of a brush I used from http://www.obsidiandawn.com/
Then, to show my appreciation for the people who actually read through this I made a template from my layout.



If you want it grab it right HERE No TOU included with this, just use it however, wherever, whenever you want and have fun.

Thanks for stopping by today, and if you use the template drop me a line and a link so I can see what you did with it. PLEASE, just leave me some love, because no one understands! lol

I see it and I get it! Love your thought process in taking pictures. I thought I was the only one who has photos that speak only to me. I have a rock covered in moss that I absolutely love and my hubby is like..."what?"...
Thanks for the template!

WAY COOL piece of old cardboard. I would have taken a picture, too. AND I love how you photoshopped it. I know what you mean, I get the same attitude at my home, too. . .even from the dog.
