A winner I am  
So I entered Studio Sidhe's Leaf Couture Photo contest with two photos, The other day Faery sent me a notecard saying I had won. Kinda

I didn't win or place in any of the announced categories..but my photo made all the judges so happy they made a new award and called it the Happy award!

SHe told me like a day before she announced all the winners so I didn't know which photo I submitted had won. I do now so I am posting about it.

So here it is..the photo that won me "the happy award!"

Here is what the Notecards I got said..first the first one then the official announcement

Dear Softpaw,

We are very pleased to inform you that after careful deliberation and discussion among our panel of judges, we have agreed that your piece is just beautiful! While unfortunately it did not get a place in this competition your picture did inspire us to create a whole new category!!!

You picture exudes happiness and warmth and to show our appreciation of that as it made us all feel happy, we have decided that your picture deserves it's own special category which we've named The Happy Pic Award!

Thank you so much for your time and efforts in participating in this competition. We are very pleased to award you $2000L, thank you so much for sharing your joy with us :D

Your picture will be displayed at Studio Sidhe main store very soon, please watch notices for details! :D

Congratulations once again!

And now the official went to the group notecard

*Cut all the stuff not about me*

AND! Just because one of the entries in particular entered was so incredibly joyous, it made all 5 judges smile we decided to create another award; The Happy Pic Award! With $2000L going to the winner...

Congratulations Softpaw Sommer, to move people so much in such an trying and emotional time and bring joy to them is an amazing gift. Well done Softpaw... Congratulations! :D

So..yeah..that's it

The trying times line comes from Faery and I assume her other friends that judged the contest are all from the areas of Australia that is currently undergoing some MASSIVE flooding.

oh and here is my Other entry, you where allowed two
