a gold star

I found out this week that I had received a Highly Commended award for a photo I had entered into a competition.  I was totally thrilled.  I was trying to explain to my boys why I was so happy and I said it was like getting a gold star in school.  I am a member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) which is an international organisation which runs monthly competitions for its members.  The competitions are highly competitive and only about the top 15% or so of photos receive any award.  So you can understand how I was thrilled.  The boys though were kind of nonplussed, in fairness they come home every second day with a gold star or two... so they moved on quickly from mummy's exciting news...I am still beaming though :-)

Thanks so much to the star jump queen who made this photo possible
