The Flats come to Seattle

How well do YOU know Flat Stanley?Flat Stanley is a boy who while at school had a bulletin board fall on him. Thus becoming quite flat, so flat in fact that he could fit in an envelope. After that he became quite the world traveler.

We have a niece and a nephew who are participating in Flat Stanley projects at their schools and we got to be a destination. We are an awesome destination! Flat Stanley and Flat Dakota had a blast with us. They went to school, book fairs, The Seattle Center and even a visit to the Fremont Troll. I wish we had remembered to take them along to the gum wall!

Check out Flat Stanley and Flat Dakota visiting the Fremont Troll......and the magic I performed with Photo Shop Elements.
You can't even see Cycle Guy's arm holding them up.
It's the magic of the Fremont Troll!

Okay, so I'm still learning but unless you look very closely you can't tell where I erased (cloned) the people out of the pic. Just Dakota and Stanley! No one else around!!

Nice work I can't even tell that you erased things out of the picture. Where did the VW go?

How fun! And I am very impressed with your photo shop abilities. I have had photo shop for over a year now and haven't even tried to learn anything. I have got to get on that!
