Cookies, Picnik and Bokeh Hearts!

Originally this was going to be a post on a Valentine’s Day cookie with a familiar look but I decided to share my heart bokeh find with you. You know what bokeh is, right? ~the little glittery out of focus lights on your photo.

Cookie Note~
I created this decorated cookie design for my niece’s nautical themed wedding this past September but with pink hearts they’re perfect for Valentine’s Day too.

Okay, back to bokeh ~

Because my camera and I don’t seem to be getting along very well lately, I Picnik-ed the heck out of both photos. If you aren’t familiar with Picnik it is a free online photo editing site that allows you to have a lot of fun by adding text, frames, graphics, making collages and offering a lot of very cool things to preoccupy your day when you know you should be doing something else of much greater importance.

For both the cookie photos I added a fun effect called Bokeh Hearts. You can find it by going to the Create tab, then the Seasonal tab, then Valentine’s Day. You will find Bokeh Hearts there. They also have Glittery Stars – oh-so-pretty.

Here is some fun I had on Picnik with a holiday photo of my guys. This was especially for College Boy2 who muses he is missing the beard and chest hair gene that runs in the Norwegian side of the family. With a click on Picnik he now has Santa subtle stubble!
Ho! Ho! Ho!

Here’s another example of a photo with and without the Heart Bokeh and added text.

I wish I could make my cookies with bokeh!
(More on the champagne flutes cookies next week.)

This is addicting. I better go and actually do something of much greater importance.

Have a marvelous Monday and a terrific week, friends!
