Day 49: Holiday Photo Challenge Winners!

Day 49: You guys. I can’t even believe it’s already Christmas Eve! I’ve been so so so busy. All with blog and illustration work. I can’t believe I’m already sharing the winner’s to this year’s Holiday Photo Challenge! Really. Can’t believe it. As usual, I was SO happy and excited with every entry! You guys are so good.

In case you all forgot what there is to win, here’s a reminder:

This year I had the help from a few fantastic judges to choose the winners. Even with their help, it was so hard for all of us to pick! Seriously. Thank you, again, for participating. AND, I hope to see all of you next year!!!!!!!  I’d also like to thank the judges that helped me pick the winners: Capree, Jamie, Jess, Roxana, and Jenni. I really could not have done it with out them. Give them all a visit, if you have a moment. Ok, enough of my babble. We’ll start with the Reader’s Fave (as chosen by all of you) and the winner of the Canon Lens Coffee Mug + Macro Cell Lens band:

Reader’s Fave: Watson’s Christmas Card Debut

Congrats to the reader’s fave! I loved this photo from the first moment I saw it. Good choice!

Ok, like I said before…. it was so difficult to choose winners. I wanted to give a little love to the 8 entries that just almost made it. Really, so hard to choose (even the images not shared here, so good):

    I'm excited! I've wanted an instant camera since they were the new hip thing. (And being super duper poor as a kid made sure that never happened.) I'm glad that Ramblings from Utopia won the grand prize, I LOVE her photo! Can you imagine trying to take a picture with running around target with a cart full of kids? Seriously awesome.
