I like both versions, but this one has a very nostalgic feel to it. Great job!

Great image Pam. What is the process for doing a "simulated polaroid transfer" in photoshop?

Thank you, Diane and Joy!!

Joy, check out this website: Polaroid Transfer
That's where I started playing around with it. Basically, you take your image and overlay it on a piece of textured paper then create a jagged frame around it. I didn't have a scanner to scan in textured paper, so I "created" a paper-like texture in photoshop starting with a solid color background and adding grain then sharpening edges. Some people say that taking a picture of a crumpled piece of paper also works.

Hope this helps! Have fun!
