I Heart Faces...Creative Crop!



Creative Crop



Original photo



Well I am back to I Heart Faces after several weeks of being away due to travel, a sick child who then passed it off to me and also a very exciting venture a photography class! So now that things have slowed down a bit, I am excited to be back for week nine and this weeks theme is "creative crop." I've had this picture for a couple months now and love love love it! I hope you enjoy my photo entries for this week and if you would like to check out other contest entries, feel free to visit their website at www.iheartfaces.com
