The 5th Edition of the "I Smile for the Camera" Carnival is Posted!

The 5th Edition of the "I Smile For the Camera Carnival" has been posted by the Shady Maven at Shades of the Departed. The theme was "Crowning Glory" and there were a record-setting 54 articles by 52 participants writing about hair (or the lack thereof) or headgear of some sort. My entry was Trijntje Gerrits (DOLSTRA) VALK (1826 - 1912), where you can view a photograph of my 4th-great-grandmother in traditional Dutch clothing, complete with a cap!

Becky Wiseman of kinnexxions will be our host for the 6th Edition, whose topic is "Funny Bone."
Show us that picture that never fails to bring a smile to your face! An amusing incident, a funny face, an unusual situation. Share!

Choose a photograph of an ancestor, relative, yourself, or an orphan photograph that tickles your Funny Bone and bring it to the carnival. Admission is free with every photograph!

Your submission may include as many or as few words as you feel are necessary to describe your treasured photograph. Those words may be in the form of an expressive comment, a quote, a journal entry, a poem (your own or a favorite), a scrapbook page, or a heartfelt article. The choice is yours!

The deadline is midnight, Pacific Daylight Time, October 10th. Submission options include:

1. Send an email to the host, Becky Wiseman. Include the title and permalink URL of the post you are submitting, and the name of your blog. Put "Smile For The Camera" clearly in the title of your email!

2. Use the handy submission form provided by Blog Carnival, or select the Bumper Sticker in the upper right hand corner.

Now, I'm off to do some reading...!
