Default how can I fix these pics?

I know how to edit the color etc but what I am wanting to do is fix the background...the only way I could pictures of her wearing my bows is if she was in front of the tv (watching cinderella ) so therefore there is all finds of stuff in the background..I thought about doigng the background black and white and have her be in color...? But I would prefer something else.

I would use some selection tool to extract your dd from the picture and create a new image with a textured background. There are quite a few free digital scrapbook papers available that work great for backgrounds. Let me know if you want some links to them. It takes some time but has come out really well for me in the past. Cute bows btw!

I did this one really quickly so you get the idea of what I mean. If you spend a little time with it, the image will look much less "cut and paste".

I would like the links! I'm constantly looking for good digital scrapbooking backgrounds.

This would be something that I would do. I did this quickly so I missed some spots, but I wanted to show you some kind of an idea.

you can check out devientart.com (I hope I have that right) They have some very realistic backgrounds that I've seen many photographers use. Just be careful on any site, make sure of the fine print of how you can use them... sometimes if you use a background on a website or etsy or something you'll have to put a small copyright info in the corner for the BG.
Just a tip for next time... try to hand a sheet infront of the distractions behind her... those portable clothes rack things work great! Then... less work editing! Oh, and when you do edit these, you can play around with your selection tool and try to use a "feather edge" that will soften the edge of the selection and can make it look better in most cases.
