Full bellies and red-stained lips

I try to fiddle around with Photoshop as much as I can.  Practice makes 'almost perfect', (there is no such thing as perfect, right?)

This is a photo I took today at my little guy's preschool.  There were two trays of very sweet, (in both senses of the word),  pink, sparkle-encrusted cupcake treats lovingly made by one of the moms. 

Here is the same photo with an adjustment to the colour and the addition of a texture layer (peeling paint) which I photographed myself.

Regardless of the changes I made to this cupcake portrait,  all treats were happily washed down the gullets of 24 very excited kids leaving them with full bellies and red-stained lips.
