Haha, thanks for the vote of confidence but all I did is "cut" around the bow and deleted the background. Otherwise it is the exact same photo (she had a pretty good/clear starting photo.) I use Gimp and there is a tool called "Free Select" (not sure what the equivalent might be in Elements) and I just zoomed way in and clicked along the edges until I had the entire bow selected. I then just copied and pasted what I selected onto a new white background and that was it. There may even be an easier way than that but that's how I did that one.
