Foto Friday

Something a little different today. One of my favorite websites,, is having a contest where you can win a really sweet camera. Go enter, the deadline is Monday but it would be really cool if someone I knew won it. And then let me borrow it.

So the contest is for Shutterfly and you have to make and submit a photo book. My sister Britta actually uses this site to do a calendar for the family every year and she made a photo book for my parents when Wade took family pictures for us.

Now the contest is judged on the book as a whole, not just the pictures so it said you could use pictures you didn't take but had permission to use. Good thing! And good thing I have some talented family and friends. I "borrowed" several from my brother-in-law Will who is an awesome photographer. My dad also helped and lent me pictures and a few are from my sister Britta, and one from Maiken. And the tattoo ones are from Becky. Wow did I do any of this book myself? I swear I did.

It is about my tattoo. (geez will this girl ever get over talking about her tattoo? doubtful) And mostly it was just fun to do and play around with the layouts and colors and everything. And try to come up with something a little different than most of the books submitted. Actually REALLY makes me want to have the camera they are giving away. And then maybe some motivation to go along with it to work on learning some skills.

That book turned out really cool, Kari1 I hope you win! I actually stopped by Dooce today and left a comment on one of her posts, maybe that's a good luck signal!

That 1 is supposed to be an exclamation mark. Errgh!

I actually saw your comment on dooce yesterday. Because I'm weird like that. And its ok, I am the #1 Kari, so all good ;)

I'm really glad you put this book together. You've expanded your comfort zone so much this past year and it's a privilege to share some of it.

That turned out wonderful! I love it.

I am going to finish my book if it kills me! Which it might.
