Time For a Giveaway!!!!!

They say nothing in life is free, but an 11x14 Limited Edition Signed photograph of your choice from my body of work is free, if my daughter picks your name out of a hat on August 1st.
Okay, you do have to do a little something.
--First, I need to know what image you would love to have. So go to my website at www.ljdesignphoto.com, or my etsy shop, or my flicker collection and pick something.
--I also need to be able to contact you some how, so leave me a comment of which image you would love to have and, if you don't have a blog, please leave me your email in your comment.

On August 1st at 9 AM PST I will put the names of everyone entered in a hat, or jar, and have my three year old daughter randomly pick a winner. She will just love playing this important roll. The winner will have five days to claim their prize by sending me a shipping address.

My favorite photo from your shop is always changing, because you are always adding something new. If I were to pick a favorite today, it would be the Red Gerbers. I would hang it in my classroom this fall to remind me of all my Fabulous Mamas that I have met.

I'll be adding a giveaway to my blog today or tomorrow!

What a wonderful offer for a giveaway!

Your Red Corvette, Hackberry Route 66 print absolutely takes my breath away. Maybe something about throwing your inhibitions to the wind and discovering the mystery of the open road... Either way, it's perfect :)

Oh and I have the Red Vet print on a tee-shirt in my Route 66 Image shop on cafepress http://www.cafepress.com/ljdesignphoto.

I LOVE Which Way Today!

Cindy Joy said...

I had it narrowed down to my four favorites and then decide that two of them would look better in 11x14 format than the others. Anyway, I would love to have "Waterwheel" http://flickr.com/photos/ljdesignphoto/2148912293/
It was hard to pick one, but I managed. Just beautiful.

Jon & Sarah said...

I love red gerbers 2 or wet gerber.

ShaunJoy said...

it's a toss up between the Salmon colored Rose and the Waterwheel.
I love the Rose one so that's my choice.

Katie said...

Canyon de Chelly is so pretty. Thanks katie_mmartin at yahoo dot com.

Kiy said...

I love Gerber Daisies (seems we share that!). Your photo on your Etsy account, Red Gerbers 2, is beyond stunning. I think I would choose that one. Plus, I did my kitchen in reds (odd, I know but it works and is SO happy!). I think any of your red gerber's would rock in there but I need more of a horizontal photo for the wall I am thinking of. So not sure my fav would work. Guess if I win I would have to figure it out. Here's hoping I have that dilemma! :)

BTW, beautiful work. Just beautiful.

cmartin0055 said...

I like Death Valley National Park, CA pic.

First of all, your work is beautiful. It is very much my taste. On page one I saw 3 I liked then said "well let's look at page two" Bloom 01 4/500 Limited Edition, Signed, and Numbered Photograph - Pink Hibiscus photo matted in red has to be my favorite of all of them. All I can saw is WOW!!

Michele said...

I love the one that is desaturated that you said was one of your favorites, and I also love the bleeding heart one. I would love to look at your Flickr account, but I don't know how to get to it. I'm decorating my apartment bedroom in a shabby chic romantic lacy style in light pink with ivory and possibly some light aqua accents. I'd like to look through your other photos to see if there is something I could put in my bedroom in a nice frame.

Great giveaway!! I LOVE your pictures and bookmarked you so I can go back to look at what you do in the future!

Thanks so much!!
