Monday Won-Day

Don't worry -- I'm not going to make all of this week's titles rhyming like I made all of last week's titles alliterative. Well, I might, but I have no firm plans yet.

Today I'm very excited because I finished in third place in the MCP Actions gallery wrap canvas contest, which means that I get a 16x20 canvas of the shot that I submitted to the contest! I can't wait to hang it on my wall!

From a professional perspective, I'm also really interested to see the quality of the Color Inc. canvas. I've never seen one from them before, but Jodi at MCP Actions had great things to say about them, so I'm excited. I love that they finish it nicely on the back. Maybe they'll be my new canvas supplier.

I want to really truly thank all the blog readers who voted for my image. It means a lot to me to have this canvas of my girls. I love that photo, and I think in years to come, the girls will love it, too. It's a perfect representation of their relationship right now.

And, of course, I want to thank Jodi at MCP Actions for running the contest. I can only imagine the amount of work that goes into her blog to make it such a valuable resource for photographers. And there are lots of contests over there, with the coolest prizes, so really, get on over there and check it out! Go win some stuff for yourself!

Here's a snapshot from today. I call it "Marissa + Chocolate Chips = THIS!" and it's oddly reminiscent of "Marissa + Cake = THIS!"
