PHOTO CHALLENGE -SPOT COLOR ON IG

PHOTO CHALLENGE -SPOT COLOR ON IG

I'm oh-so-excited to begin a summer filled with amazing contests, giveaways, tutorials, announcements + photography projects on my blog. I've been waiting for quite some time to get back into action, and true to form, I plan to do it with a bang. Let's just hope I re-adjust smoothly! Thanks to the many, many folks who kept my blog hoppin', even when I was inactive.

First up, is a spectacularly awesome contest that I have the pleasure of hosting on Instagram. (not following me there? hop to it already - I have lots of fun lined up for this summer!) Throughout the post, I have highlighted some amazing photos that have already put their entries in. I'll be featuring more entries throughout the week here as well! Enter today, to have a chance at being featured in the next post!
