I ♥ Hands Entry....











If you follow my blog you know how much I adore this image....I even picked it as my favorite for 2009.  I love it so much I entered it into a photo challenge themed "hands" this week, hosted by iheartfaces blog.  If you are a photographer, or just like to be inspired by beautiful photography, it is a great blog to follow.  Each week they have a new photo challenge topic, and ANYONE can enter, so whether you are a pro, or a Mom who loves taking pictures you should check it out :)!   Wish me luck!!
