Fix-it-Friday 59

I am a sucker for a fun fix and a cute baby so today I get both in the form of fix-it-Friday at i ♥ faces!!  Here is the original shot:

Is she not the cutest little thing you've ever seen?  Back on track Jo!!  You all know I like my photos just a tad lighter so I decided to pull it into Lightroom 2 (no I still have not upgraded to 3, but soon) and lighten it up a bit!  I also worked to make her eyes pop and did some cropping!  Here is what the export looked like:

I then pulled into PSE 6 and ran the PW action Lovely and Ethereal and cleaned up some little spots on her face and added some text!  Here is that final edit:

And, of course, a black and white conversion was in order!  I was going to add a texture but thought better of it at the last minute!

Now join in the fun or just see what others have come up with over at  i ♥ faces!  Busy weekend on tap here with family visiting from Florida and my nephew's senior shoot before he flies home next week!  I still cannot believe that he and the Moody Teen are Seniors already!!  My how time flies!!

I don't normally go as bright as you, Jo, but I really like the way her eyes jump out from her face in your edits. And the B&W...perfection! Thanks for participating!
