Thank you Matt and Ed also! I appreciate all comments, I need all the help I can get
(I am getting better all the time from these sort of tips, and much less frustrated knowing others are on/or have been on the same track).
I did try the pen tool again and with your explaination Debbie I got it! Very useful I see for many purposes....AND I tried Vikki's tip on the baby's face and just think that is great! I went back and re-read two of my photoshop books and sure enough....similar hints that I must not have understood at the time and just skimmed ~ thank you for explaining in easy terms, you guys are wonderful!
