My Time Has Come - Photoshop Elements 7.0

Well, I am the proud owner of my first copy of Photoshop something. In this case, it's Photoshop Elements 7.0. I am well on the road to going just nuts editing and fixing photos. But, it's a long road to get good at Photoshop. Here are a few first tries.

Besides converting this one to pencil, I removed two lines (but I need to do a better job of that).
Wouldn't these illustrations make great illustrations in childrens' books?

I love the composition of this picture but not the color.
Maybe my first attempt at adjusting it is a little better.
So, if I'm not sleeping or talking or...I'm probably learning how to create stunning photos in Photoshop Elements:-) Don't worry too much, I can eat and type at nearly the same time:-)

Way Cool!
I've always wanted to try my hand at PS. I like the color 'fixng' of the butterfly.

So how hard is it to remober stuff? I see the two vertical lines are gone in the pencil drawing of Joey. Can you remove the shadow that outlines the left side of his face?

(that's remove... Unlike you I can't type and eat. Licking the chocolate off my fingers does impact my typing.)
