Just have to brag about one of our newest CM mentors, CMPro member and just an all around fantastic woman – our very own Shannon Joy Heimsoth!    Shannon always has a kind word for anyone and her 365 Simple Joys project will make you stop to reevaluate what is truly important as life goes zipping by.

Shannon recently entered a photography contest in McHenry County, IL.  Photographs were judged judged on 10 elements ( Impact, Creativity, Composition, Lighting, Style, Center of Interest,Subject Matter, Color Balance, Technique and Story Telling).  Over 150 entries were received.

Shannon won not only FIRST PLACE in the Open category but SECOND PLACE as well!!

Here’s the winning images:

Thank you so much for sharing with us, Shannon!  I love having the opportunity to brag about you!  (And I know you’ll forgive me for shamelessly stealing some “Joy” for the blog post title!)
