Elf #2

Uploaded: December 23, 2011


No cruelty to animals occurred during the creation of this photograph. I captured Cedric sittting on top of the dining room table. I then captured the elf cap and extracted the object to paste it onto the photo of Cedric. I cropped the image and added a spotlight filter along with text. Merry Christmas from our nest to yours! Thanks so much for looking at my gallery!

Hee hee hee! Thanks so much, Lisa! :) Cedric is such a little mess, and usually loves the attention. I think he has picked up some expressions and mannerisms from his big sister, though. Thanks so much for such sweet comments! Merry Christmas to you guys. We'll see you soon. #9885027
