It is a truth universally acknowledged that a rainy day becomes much cheerier when one is in possession of a turquoise umbrella.

Photo Challenge {Framed}

I've been thinking.

Yes, yes, I have. I've been thinking a lot. Would you like to know what I've been thinking about? You would?

Sorry, my thoughts are private. Go find your own thoughts.

Ha. Just messing with you lovely people on that bit. Of course I haven't been thinking. ;) However, it has crossed my mind that it would be fun to host a photo challenge.

So, instead of merely contemplating hosting one, I am. Hosting a photo challenge, that is.

Try to stay with me here.

 Mowgli at heart? Nope, the little dude had just been swimming.

Photos that involve frames, actual photo frames within a photo, are very cool to me. Just check my mental dictionary with the turquoise cover and you'll see a photo with a textured or old frame beside the word "cool."

 I think John could have been a 1940's silver screen heartthrob. I really do.

Here's the deal. You take a picture that involves a frame. (See examples above) It may showcase a person, pet, or anything you like. Being creative is the key. Then post your entry to your blog or photo sharing account and link up. It'd be great if you'd include this li'l button here, but it's purely optional:






Sound simple enough? Cool. Because after the deadline has passed, finalists will be chosen and then a voting poll will be added to the sidebar for the people to vote on their favorite. I love a democracy. 

Oh, how could I forget? The winner will receive this:
"Paris Fleur" Necklace
Because I think Paris is cool, too. Just check the mental dictionary.

Mmkay, Mr. Linky may be found below. He's thinking that he would be thrilled if you linked up. I'm thinking that I would, too. ;-)

Photo challenge ends August 8th, 2011.

What a fantastic idea - I will have to come up with something ... or drag some folks out with a frame!

Your photos above are beautiful by the way - the editing is spectacular!

Sounds neat! I think I'll do it. :) Just need to find the right frame though. Take care!

Johanna Grace- Thanks for stopping by! It does end on August 4th...something is wrong with Mr. Linky, so don't listen to what he's saying. ;P I'm working on fixing it. :)

Hey Erin,

I'm having a little trouble with the linky tool. I'm trying to enter in my photo but it won't show on your blog though.
I though I should let you know in case other are having trouble with it.

Hi Erin!
Ummm, I'm a little confused, does it end on the eighth or on the fourth? On the linky it says that there is still one day left, but I also say that above you said it ended on the fourth, and in the post you wrote it ended on the eighth????
I hope it's not over, 'cause I just got my pic done:))))
God bless~
