I am not sure why my photo was deleted? I am almost 100% sure everything was done correctly? Button, had a face in the photo, permalink? I submitted to the I heart photo challenge statement? Can anyone help? http://www.amyvallorani.com/2012/04/05/hannah-in-virginia/

It was a gorgerous day at the dog park and my little guy was beaming with joy as he watched the dogs chase after tennis balls. He just recently “found his feet” and was LOVING the independence that walking gives him!

My daughter was playing t-ball and thought it would be fun to try and hit the ball towards me. I of course played along and over exaggerated my fear of her skills 🙂

OK, so I couldn’t get it to work using my wordpress blog so I had to go with blogger.

Hi, i have the same problem! It drove me crazy! I found on Flickr site one comment that everyone who is new on Flickr can not post html comments to prevent spamming 🙁 I’m trying every day and it still doesen’t let me. Hope it will soon…

#427: From a session with a very active toddler! He kept me moving. I asked his mom why he was putting his ‘lovie’ on his head, she said he just likes doing that. Well, that HAD to be documented!! As it turns out, this incidental picture is by far one of my all time favorites!!

#379 From an engagement session. Just gave me a smirk when I told him to grab her butt. It was such a funny little “I’m the man” smirk.

Submission #348 – thanks to Nick Jr, my twins run around sounding like a pirate. One day as she was playing with the sidewalk chalk, this is the face she made when I asked her what a pirate said. Then she just laughed up a storm.

Carolina-
The same thing was happening to me. I’ve entered my pics before and never encountered this issue. I contacting inlinkz directly and after several different attempts they told me that it was because of my blog design. It’s a dynamic blog template (http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2011/09/dynamic-views-new-blogger-templates.html). Neither the back link back to iheartfaces or the image would work. They said this issue is new to them and they would work on it as dynamic blogs are becoming more popular. So if this is the type of template you use, it could be your reason for no success. –Lisa

I’ve been trying to upload my entry but no luck 🙁
I’ve tried more than 7 times but my link and picture doesn’t show up. Can someone help me please? Thanks

I tried the same with the button on 4 sites that it didn’t work on or that wouldn’t load into the contest. The only one I could get to work was Blogger.com It took the button and the entry.

Hi there!! I am having trouble getting the button code to show up on my Flickr comments section (unless its just not showing up for me) can you check my entry?? I have added the code several times but its not working on my end and i copy pasted straight from your site.

PS I love looking at all the wonderful entries!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How can this challenge not just make you smile!!?? After MANY attempts and conversation with inlinkz directly I finally got my image uploaded and linked.

A mother of two little girls myself this picture just captured my heart. (Currently #296)

FYI – inlink has said that my problems linking brought a new issue to their attention. If you use a dynamic blog design, then image and backlink to iheartfaces.com does not work. They are working to fix this as dynamic blog designs are becoming more popular! Hope this helps!!!

#293… How do you choose your happiest photo? It wasn’t easy! But I settled on taking one of my daughter giggling in the bluebonnets. SHE makes ME so happy, and it is a happy, BEAUTIFUL time of year here in Texas!

I’m new at this photography art form, but I’ve taken thousands of pictures over the past 11 years…when my first granddaughter was born. Now I have two more granddaughters and have captured lots of “happiness” moments on their faces. I accidentally found this website and “Happiness” photo challenge while searching for some helpful hints on my new camera and thought to myself… “why not” enter some of my shots? Hope you enjoy them too. Everyone who has entered has taken some great pics. Good luck to all…and have fun!
