please be kind... I've had my photoshop elements 5 program for over a year...and all I've managed to do with it is crop to smaller pics and fix red-eyes.  UNTIL TONIGHT!!  with the help of a "photoshop elements for dummies" book. I removed the cluttered background from a pic of hubby, grandbabies and me.... so the focus is on us and not the junk in the background!!  I am so pleased with myself.  its a little rough but I like it.

That's really great for a first try. I love what you did. It's too great a picture to be left the way it was. Bit more practice and you'll be loads better.

It looks good! It takes tons and tons of practice to get anything out of photoshop. at least it did for me, and a butt load of computer classes. :p

looks good!

Can I just suggest you delete all the floor. its a small change, but the proportion looks off with the floor being cut off in that spot. I think if you make the background all clouds it will look like its a purposefully fake background.

and good job with the other "little change" that one took me a moment to notice
