Images & Words -- Happy Holidays (week 33)



Welcome back to week thirty three and it is time for me to host again.This week I chose Happy Holidays as our topic. I was going to skip this topic but this is my favorite time of the year, unless I am in line at a store. The joy of giving, the smiles on the face of a child, and the memories of Christmas's past could warm any soul. Speaking for all the administrators here...Mia, Milli, Danni, and myself..... Thank you all for being part of our family here at Images and Words, and we wish you all Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year.

The Rules:

Each week we will post an original photo with words on it. The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography.

Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words.

Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene .

Posts can either have one word on them,quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.

All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here.

New topics will be posted on Sundays.

Posts can be made through Saturday.

One post per person only please.

  16. Thanks Debby I used the frames that come with Paint Shop Pro Photo X2, and I ran the photo through Corel Painter 4 to give it the vintage look.

  17. This is so beautiful and serene... really kicking my sentimental senses. The words wrapping around my being.

    May you and yours... twice fold.

    I may not participate this week. My kids are on a road trip home and should be here early morning. A total surprise they couldn't keep from me. One from Arizona the other Colorado Springs.
