The Doll Wardrobe Winter Photo Contest

So, it's that time of year again. :)  The Doll Wardrobe is having another photo contest, and the pictures from Round 1 are up for voting today.  HERE is a link to the original contest rules, in case you want to get in on Rounds 2 and 3, and HERE is a link to the Round 1 photos, so you can cast your vote! :)  There were 51 entries for this round, and I tell you, I'm glad I'm not deciding on the winners!  Everyone did a fabulous job! :)

Oh, and in case you're curious, this one was mine (Photo 7):

I know, the theme was "Winter Wonderland" and I have a rainy picture.  Snow is pretty rare in my neck of the woods, and I just flat ran out of time to make a pretend snow scene.  Then I realized, for my city, this is what a Winter Wonderland looks like, as much as I'd love to have a snowy winter.  I'm just entering to have fun and to challenge myself anyway.  And thankfully, there was at least one other person that had a non-snowy entry.  :)

I would encourage all of you to head on over and enjoy all of the creative photos. :)  I especially loved Photos 1 and 31. :)  Oh, and Photo 39 is my mom's.  Didn't she do a great job with her snow scene? (She's much more patient than I am!) ;)

Thank you for all of the entries for my giveaway!  Remember, all entries are due by this Friday!  I'll draw the name of the winner on Saturday. :D

Talk to you guys again soon! :)

Thanks, girls. :) And nice job, Lauren! :)

Emma said...

I love yours! I thought it was so creative. And I live in sunny Cali, so snow is VERY scarce, and in fact, today it was raining really hard! :D I voted for yours. Also, I'm photo 23! I took in in Utah (I have family there) during last February.


Claire said...

Glad to see somebody else had a snowless picture, too! ;) My picture (#36), is sorely lacking snow, considering my creative skills were not exactly "on" when I was taking the picture. ;) I love yours, and I will be most definitely voting for you! :)

Shawna said...

Ooo! I loved number 5. I entered this time too. Our entry (my daughter's doll) is number 11.

Thanks for the comments, everyone! It's fun finding out which pictures belong to each of you. :) Now I'm going to have to go back and look at all the pictures you mentioned. :)

Claire, I feel the same way. I knew I was taking a risk to do a non-snowy picture, bu I figured it was worth a shot. ;)

Diane said...

I love yours! I live in California also, it's so over-rated! Lol!

Wonderful job! :-)

beast'sbelle said...

Thanks, Diane. :) I actually don't mind California too much. I've lived in the same town all my life, and I'm a very sentimental person, so I enjoy being in familiar surroundings. I do NOT enjoy the over 100 degree weather in the summer, however! And I would like just a few small snowstorms in the winter. ;)

What fun, such wonderful photos, I didn't realise there was all this going on, thank you for the link.

You're welcome. :)
