Inspiration - Photoshopper's Block?

I have this image that a friend asked me to 'play with' after seeing some of my work. So I've been sitting on it for about a week and other than playing with the brightness/contrast and colours a little bit, I'm seriously lacking inspiration here!

So I'm on the hunt for some ideas. Something I can do. Basically I've been told 'whatever you want as long as the baby still looks nice' - as in no glamour/pageant or makeovers for bubba here, something more 'arty' than 'perfect' without making it 'yukky' (her words). She said that she has no idea what can be done so she has no idea what she wants. The basis of this for me is practise and portfolio, as I can use the results.

But I don't know what to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Auuggghhh I gave up writing because of constant writers block lol I really don't need photoshoppers block too!!

Hi Aylaah,
Here's what I came up with.
I find kids pictures harder to paint than adults, don't you?

Sorry aylaah; did this one in GIMP.

Hope you like it anyway. Had fun. Sort of a Norman Rockwell meets Monty Python look. lol

Yes I find kids much harder to work on than adults! I don't mind making adults look completely different, lol.

Nice to see that you guys can get more out of it than I can!
