Caption It! #4 – Voting

Hello!

Currently I am on a mission trip with a group from my church, so I’ve scheduled the voting session for Caption It #4. 🙂

Here’s how the voting works:

  • I post the picture to be captioned
  • I post a few of my favorite captions below it
  • and you vote for your favorite caption with the poll!

I plan to post the winner in about 2 weeks! (In one week I plan to post the blogiversary winner!)

 

I loved reading all of your captions!! You all had great ones!

I picked out four of my favorites for you all to choose from, and even if I didn’t pick yours, I still really enjoyed it! Thank you all for participating!

(Note: These are not listed in order of favorites.)

 

Hannah‘s Caption:

Caroline: Which shirt Grace?

Grace: I don’t know, look outside, is it hot, or cold?

Caroline: It’s the middle of June, what did you think?

Grace: I know it’s the middle of June, Caroline. So what are you going to wear?

Caroline: I asked you, you’re the fashionista after all.

Grace: Just put the pink t-shirt on Caroline.

 

Jewel‘s Caption:

[Grace]: I got the suitcase!

[Caroline]: Thank you, Grace. One question: I only have room for one more shirt. So should I wear the tee-shirt or the sweater for our vacation?

[Grace]: Oh definitely tee-shirt! Julie gave you that.

[Caroline]: OK…

[Grace]: On the other hand it is cold in Alaska…

[Caroline]: Yeah, that’s what I was thinking.

[Grace]: But Julie might be upset you didn’t bring the tee-shirt.

[Caroline]: Yikes… It’s possible.

[Grace]: But the sweater is so much cuter!

[Caroline]: True… I think I’ll go with that…

[Grace]: Now, that I think about it, didn’t it have fleas?

[Caroline]: Grace!

[Grace]: What?

[Caroline]: Nevermind… I think I have as many clothes as I need.

[Grace]: Glad to be of service!

 

The Director‘s Caption:

Grace: What are you doing with those?

Caroline: I have too much stuff in my closet, so I’m going to give these away.

Grace: But you wear those all the time!! Aren’t you supposed to give away what you don’t use, not what you do?

Caroline: Well… Yeah, I guess so!

Grace: Good. Because I was worried I wouldn’t be able to borrow these from you anymore!

 

Jaylin’s Caption:

Grace: Aha! Here’s a perfect spot for a photo shoot! People will certainly enter Gracie’s blogiversary giveaway after they see these pictures! *stands perfectly still posing for the camera*

Caroline: Grace!!

Grace: *screams* Caroline! Why did you scare me like that! I’m doing a photo shoot!

Caroline: *Looks sheepishly at Grace* Sorry, I was just wondering which outfit I should wear.

Grace: Um…

Caroline: I think you’re right! I should wear the blue shirt.

Grace: Wait, I didn’t say… Oh never mind.

Caroline: So I should wear the pink one?

Grace: Sure!

Caroline: Thanks Grace!

 

Have fun voting!

Caption It! #4

Hi! How are you?

I’m here with another Caption It game!

Here’s How the Game it Works:

Take a look at the image posted below, and decide what you think Caroline and Grace are saying (or doing), then comment below!

Example:

[Name]: It’s a bird!

[Other Name]: It’s a plane!

[Name]: No, It’s superman!!!

In about a week, I plan to post three to five of my favorite captions, and then you all get to vote on your favorite!

A week or so from the voting post, I will post the winner!

 

As I mentioned in this post, I’m planning to start a blogging schedule to post every Thursday. However, I’m posting this on Wednesday because I’m going out of town next week and will need to schedule the voting post ahead of time.

So,

You have through Friday the 15th to post your captions!

 

Without further ado, here is the picture!

Have fun captioning!

Grace and the Greenery – A Photoshoot + Updates

Hi everyone!

Today I have a photoshoot of Grace to show you, and also some updates on summer posting on Smile and Craft AG! Enjoy!

DSCN6926PSedit

One of my summer goals is to use a blogging schedule during break. This past semester kept me busy with school and work, so since summer has arrived, I have some more free-time, and should be able to post more often (and more consistently)!

DSCN6927PSedit

So today (Thursday) I decided that I would plan to start a schedule to post every Thursday!

DSCN6931PSedit

Thus, once our backyard was shady I grabbed Grace (who I had dressed for a photoshoot the other day), and got some photos of her around some big green bushes we have. And then I did the editing and finished the post tonight 😛 !

DSCN6932PSedit

Hopefully I will keep up the schedule so that you all can expect a post each week on Thursday!

DSCN6933PSedit

But, next week should be different because…

DSCN6936PSedit

Wednesday is Smile and Craft AG’s 2nd blogiversary!!!

DSCN6939PSedit

I’m planning something special, so stay tuned for then!

DSCN6940PSedit

And enjoy the rest of the shoot!

Which photo is your favorite? What do you think I will do for Smile and Craft AG’s blogiversary? Would you be interested in a Photoshop photo editing tutorial?

 

I look forward to posting here more often this summer!

Happy Resurrection Day! {{Easter 2018}}

Happy Easter everyone!

Today I’m here with some family photos of my dolls in the Easter outfits that you all voted on for them!

I hope you enjoy the pictures. Most importantly, my hope and prayer is that you remember the reason we celebrate Easter.

It’s not the rabbits, the chocolate, the egg hunts.

It is Resurrection Day. A day we commemorate Jesus rising from the grave after his death on the cross, conquering death and sin.

And as the song “Glorious Day” puts it,

~Living He loved us.

Dying He saved us.

Buried He carried our sins far away.

Rising He justified, freely forever.

And one day He’s coming back, oh glorious day!~

We don’t deserve His love, yet he freely gives it. Don’t take this message lightly! It is the most important news the world will ever know. Without it, we are doomed to eternity in Hell.

“All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him [Jesus] the iniquity of us all.” ~Isaiah 53:6 

There is hope in the power of the cross!

“Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved.” ~Acts 16:31. Visit my “What I Believe” page, or find a Bible church for more information 🙂 . And for those of you who are Believers, let’s rejoice in Jesus’ sacrifice, today and for eternity!

 

And now, onto the photos!

I hope you enjoyed the pictures, and that you had a blessed Easter!

Bonus photo comparison:

DSCN6507

I was using a white poster-board as a reflector. The above photo is an unedited picture without a reflector.

DSCN6505

And this one is an unedited picture with the reflector! I simply propped the board in front of me while I took the pictures. It really seems to even out the shadows, and help their eyes to shine a little more.
