My Funny Valentine---A Photo Contest

Sweet Joni from the blog Six Cherries on Top and I are teaming up to bring you, the first ever...


With the contest just a few short weeks away, it's never too early to start digging through your boxes of old photos to find your very best "cutest couple" photo.

Don't have an old photo you want to use? No problem. Grab your camera and snap away! Both old photos and new shots are welcome!

You can use any photo, from a picture from your high school prom, to a shot of you and your current sweetheart or special someone. You can use a photo of your parents, grandparents, or your little munchkin and their best friend. Even a photo of the fuzzy Mr. and Mrs.Duck from your daughter's favorite pond would work. Just get creative, and most importantly, have fun!

You don't have to be a professional photographer and your photo does not have to be taken by you, but please make sure you have permission to use it. (Your photo must be an original. Though it doesn't have to have been taken by you, please do not submit images from any photo sharing site, like We Heart It, Flickr, or Google Images. Thank you!)

Here are a few photos to get you inspired:

It's not easy being green, or is it?---Gillian Grace, 2011

Santa Smooches---GG, Christmas 2009

Daddy's Girl---Sweet Bean and Bret, July 2010

High School Sweethearts---My mom and dad, Summer 2008






Be sure to stop back by here ( Webbisodes) or over at Six Cherries on Top,  for a full description of the rules and to link up your best "cutest couple" photo on February 1st.

Photos will be voted on by all of y'all and 4 winners will be chosen.

Thanks to Joni, we have some amazing prizes available to the winners! And the best news of all, four winners will be selected.

Take a sneak peek at our fabulous sponsors!

Awesome idea S!
Hmmm, wonder what I can dig up/ shoot?
What a great list of sponsors too! YAY!

Hope you and GG have a great day....it's a little too cold to ANYTHING outside. Unfortunately, I am about to be out the door. Just wanted to hit a blog or 2 before.

Happy Thursday!

So fun! I love all the pics of GG, of course, but my favorite is the one of her and Bret. Too cute!

I want to a picture like the couple standing in front of the fence! I may try to get my mom to take one of us like that this weekend. People are so creative... me not so much (at least not w/ photography!). HA!

Jumping Jack said...

Oh yeah - I LOVE Heather's design. It's so fun!

This is a fantastic idea. I love getting into the Valentine's Day spirit! Gillian looks like she has gotten so much bigger in such a short period of time...I couldn't believe your most recent photo of her...she's turning into a little girl! (Of course she'll always be your baby girl!)

Mama K said...

Somehow I missed this post! I guess with everything going on... but this sounds like fun!
