In Case You're Wondering...

No, your pictures are not due today. I only received two responses to my due date question, and both of them said July 13th.

So... That will be when they are due.

You don't have to wait that long though!  Feel free to take your picture and get it in to me as soon as you like :)

Don't forget to have fun with it!

Round 7 Theme

OK, so... I was lying in bed last night and it just came to me. The BEST theme idea ever. It was awesome. It was thought provoking. It was EPIC. I was going to do this amazing one word post, saying only the theme.

And then... I fell asleep.

I now can only recall the epicness...

and not the brilliant theme.

Hopefully it will come back to me eventually.

Until then, I will just have to assign a different theme for this round.

I choose...


Get on it.

It can be due either June 30th or July 13th. Comment and tell me which, most votes wins. I know it is a crazy gap in between but I cannot guarantee that I will have internet access in between so... it's up to you :)

Round 6 Results

I'm so sorry that this has been delayed and I hate to admit, but I can't show you  the pictures today. I will post them as soon as I can when I get home and have access to them.

I can tell you that I LOVED them :) They are all pretty great.

Unfortunately, "Carolyn with Delilah" and "Liddy with Natalie" are now out of the competition.

It has been brought to my attention by an email, that some may feel this contest has been handled irresponsibly. I am very sorry that some may feel this way. I am really doing the best I can. Even though it might seem easy, running the contest during summer is fairly difficult. Having run the contest before in a different season, I can say that summer is much different. I also cannot control my computer problems and have done my best to overcome them as quickly as I can. As some of you know, I have just last Saturday switched over to a new Macbook for college. It runs so much better than my old laptop and hopefully will not have the problems that I was. I realize also, that this switch may not have come at the most convenient time (hence not being able to post the pictures) but it was a necessary switch not only for sanity but so that I can learn the "Mac way" before it is all I have to use at college. I do understand why some people may be a bit frustrated with me, but I really am trying.

Now, on a happier note, I'll post theme #7 tomorrow. And, just for the fun of it, I will leave you with a picture that I took at the beach yesterday :)

Next Round We're Going to be on Top of Things!!

But, this round I'm going to be lenient. For the last time! I have been having trouble getting my laptop to cooperate with me so I wasn't able to get on and give the reminders that I like to.

I will be accepting photos from anyone who hasn't turned their in today and tomorrow. If you don't get it turned in by Friday you will be eliminated.

As far as the pictures I do have, if you were rushed and would like to give this round another go, feel free to do so. I [obviously] know that we are all really busy right now with school ending and vacations beginning. I really do like all of the pictures so far, but if you think that you can do better, be my guest :)

I'll get back with you Saturday morning with the results of the round and the next topic as I will be leaving Sunday for a rather last minute week-long trip to the beach with my friend :)

Round 6 Theme

See, this is what happens when you don't leave comments! I'm on summer time with my days just running one into the next I can't keep track of what day it is! Luckily, Liddy shot me an email "reminding" me that I needed to post the topic. So, now I'll do that :)

The theme for Round 6 is....

                The First Day of Summer

I thought that would be fitting for most of us :) Show me in an uber spectacular photo what your perfect first day of summer would be. You've all been doing pretty well so far, so make sure your pictures have good lighting, coloring and a cute idea (I'm sure they all will :) )

The due date for this round will be June 13. That gives you about 10 days with 2 weekends. I know that not everyone is out of school yet, so if you happen to be in the midst of finals and need a bit more time, let me know NOW and I'll see what I can do :)

Go out and get clicking!
