Jones Soda Label

I have to admit I have always had a couple of goals for myself way on the back burner in the deepest recesses of my head. I have almost wanted even them more than I've wanted any scrapbook-related goals (and trust me, that's saying alot!).
My first goal was to become known and/or respected for my photography skills. I took some generic photography courses in high school, have always had what I would call a "good eye" for composition and design (that art degree wasn't for nothing, mom, really) and have loved, loved, loved to take photos with a passion. And I took alot. And I entered a few contests and had some success. And it pretty much ended there. Lately, that passion has been re-ignited in me and I'm working on doing more, learning more, practicing more to improve my photography skills. Occassionally I'll come out with a photo that just makes my heart stand still. The lighting is just right, the composition just right, the focus spectacular and I'll think that I'm not too far away from my goal....which leads me to my second goal.


The
Jones Soda Label.

I'm serious now when I say that. For me, having a photo selected for the Jones Soda label is a huge accomplishment and one of my deep seeded goals I've had for myself ever since my sister-in-law, Dawn, introduced me to them a few years ago. Have you seen the photography they include on their labels? It's outstanding, every one. And so after I took one of those heart-stopping pics I mentioned a second ago, I took a deep breath and submitted it to their gallery for possible inclusion on a future lable/bottle.
And this is it:

And I think it would be so stinkin' cute on a real bottle of Jones Soda. So if you agree, please, go
here and vote! And just maybe this label will be at a store near you soon!
