Beautiful baby

I have this wonderful photo of my sister, Gina, as a baby. I borrowed it from my Mother so I could scan it to scrap it. Soooo.... as I was removing it from the frame, the photo stuck to the glass. I had no choice but to remove it, so it tore a bit. I worked for hours & hours on it to fix the tears on her face, using several tools in Photoshop... Healing tool, Clone tool, Blur, Smudge. For the most part, I left the other wear on the photo. It was a labor of love because Gina has passed on, so I really wanted to preserve this lovely photo.

Here is the original, damaged photo:

And the LO I created with the retouched photo...

I used my Beloved kit & the frame is from my Romantic Recollections; the font is Cancellaresca ES. Hope you enjoy this :)
