I have Spring Fever BIG TIME!

Then I cloned my kids out of this photo so I could

I layered it all together and got this:
Look through your photos for somebody running,
or jumping or spreading their arms like this:
You can use my background, and I made a PNG of
the balloons for you to scoot into your photo.

And create something like this:
Or this:
Create some spring MAGIC!
