Lordy Lordy... I am officially 40..

Cheers!

I took this image for the "Get pushed" Challenge.. I was challenged by April @aecasey.. She said, " I've been bouncing between two thoughts, so I think I'll give you a choice too ... if you are feeling festive, try some shaped bokeh https://www.picturecorrect.com/tips/how-to-do-shaped-bokeh-photography-in-5-easy-steps/
or, if you would rather get into the spirit of the New Year, use the word "beginning" as your inspiration for an image. If neither of these works for you, let me know and I'll set another challenge. In the meantime, enjoy your holiday week!"

Shaped bokeh is my favorite thing to do in camera! So I really enjoyed this challenge. I'm sure going to miss the Christmas tree being conveniently set up for these fun shots :D.
@aecasey here is my second attempt to your shaped bokeh challenge. I think this one is my new fav image :)! Loved how it turned out! Thank you so much for the great challenge this week!

really like this. Have to go get some black paper before I put my tree away. I bookmarked the article and like your idea for clip art. I think I have an Xacto knife somewhere. If I don't, DH does.
