Okay, y’all. I have a huge favor to ask of you if you have the time. {insert big grin here}

My dear, sweet, beautiful niece, Brooke VanOoyen, needs your help. She is a senior this year and is up for a $1000 college scholarship photo contest on this site. It would be a tremendous blessing for her to win that scholarship – it would pay for her books for the first year of college, and I know her mom would really appreciate not having to pay that out of her own pocket (what mom wouldn’t?)

The problem is, she only has 26 votes! The top person has over 700! I only have about 438 folks subscribed to my blog at this time, and I know that not everyone will even see this or much less read it. But I’m asking that those of you who DO see it and read it, just click over to this site and find her name “Vanooyen, Brooke” and vote for her.

Really? It takes about 20 seconds. What’s 20 seconds out of your life? Unless you’re a snail…then I suppose it would be a lot.

Thanks in advance.

And if you haven’t entered my giveaway for Photoshop CS3, you can enter it by clicking here and leaving a comment and your email address…because I’d like to contact you. You know, if you win.

    Okay, I just voted, #33 I think. I hope she wins! Beautiful girl, and I can already sympathize with her mother… I’ve got four girls who will all be going away to college at the same time (but not for along time, thankfully)!!

    I voted the other day when you mentioned it, so the crazy site won’t let me vote again. Bummer deal. But she really is adorable!!

    I did it. I’m not sure if it worked though. But I tried! She’s pretty!

    Wow, that’s weird. I was trying to be all sneaky and thought if I used IE (which I hate) I could vote again. Evidently they store a cookie somewhere on my computer that says I’ve already voted. Oh wait, unless it’s by IP address. That could be. D’uh. Sorry couldn’t get around the system and vote more than once, but I did vote once 😀
