I hope you all don't mind but we have decided to come along for the ride. Thanks for the inspiration, I think these challenges will get a few of us out of a rut. Thankyou so much for being very unique and talented women.

Number 5 - that is amazing! Just love how you have literally captured a moment in time - everything is on a freeze frame, every tiny droplet of water! It's beautiful! This woudl be gorgeous blown up and framed - or made as a canvas for that little bloke.

I'm confused as to when to vote...I thought this coming weekend as recommended because there doesnt' seem to be a #3 or #6 I think another couple are missing.....or can we vote more than once???....So far I love the bubble...wow...when I enlarge my screen I think I see pegs on a clothesline???...awesome....and #5...the sprinkler.....very very clever, love the water drops toooo....
So many more gorgeous shots as well....I'm having a play with the themes toooo.....such inspiration..

Hi Dode,

We have a few people using the same computer who all want to vote, and the little voting bar on the front doesn't seem to let us vote twice?

So the extras in my house are casting their votes here:

LG likes number 1
LK likes number 5
