For the ladies that just edit the picture, how did you guys make the background look so smooth, I know that's probably not the correct way to say it. Just dont know how to explain it. Is their any way I can learn how to do that in PSE?

The sleepier, the better. You should be sweating from the heat. Just take it slow and never force them. Google 'newborn posing workflow' you'll find some helpful stuff.

Do you have old Christmas wrapping paper? That's what I used for Ryleigh's V-day backdrop! :) Reversed on the white side of course.

You're welcome! & If you can find pink or red paper or anything, then you can make a simple little banner! This is what we did. Not the best pictures but at least you get an idea of the backdrop :)

Here's my digital Valentine's Day card for this year, lol. I accidentally erased some of the top point, but I didn't notice until the end so I said, whatever.

So cute! She looks so much older in that picture. & I honestly would never have even noticed the top point if you didn't mention it :)
