This is another example of how awesome the blogging community is and how appreciative I am of being a part of it!
A while ago the blogging friend of mine, MarieElizabeth, did a post about paying it forward. I'm sure many of you are familiar with the concept of paying it forward; whereas one good did done to someone is not returned to the giver, but rather given to another person who therein does the same.
That's my definition anyway, and I am overly impressed I used the words 'whereas' and 'therein' in a sentence.
So back to paying it forward.... MarieElizabeth's act of paying it forward was to make some amazingly beautiful cards. When I say amazingly beautiful I mean it. They are so intricate and I can't even begin to think of sentiments wonderful enough to fill them with. I want to make them myself, but haven't the slightest idea how to begin to construct something like this.
They have ribbons, flowers, and cute little messages. I'm in love. I want more. She better have an ETSY store.
.ha...you see what I did there with that rhyming at the end?
Onto the importantness:
With her gracious gift I am also going to pay it forward. While I actually do pay it forward on a regular basis (example: my photo assignment prizes are completely paid for by myself just for fun) I figured I would offer up something a little extra to one of you.... A print of one of my most favorite photos I've ever taken.
"The Old Red Dodge"
One person who comments below will be randomly selected to receive an 8x10 print of this photo, because it is one of my favorites and I'd love to share my favorite things with you. The only catch is that I ask you share in paying it forward by doing something creative for someone else! In other words... you must pay it forward!
If you're interested then leave a comment below! And just for fun, I'd love to know what you would do to pay it forward. I'll randomly pick one commenter to receive the photo on Friday afternoon/evening. Until then, be kind to one another and revel in your talents that you can share :)
