Confetti in Our Hair
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

Having married with someone from a different culture, I have found the need to make compromises and negotiations. Since our family is relatively young, it is easier to start new traditions, or to modify others. The Easter eggs have some elements from my wife's culture as well as my own.
Here's what we did:
1) We got some eggs and cracked a small hole on the top of the egg. Then, proceeded to take out the whites and the yolk, which would later be used for an egg bake (my wife is from the Midwest). They were washed and dried.
2) We then filled the eggs with confetti. Since my wife got the tissue paper we ended up with what she called Easter colors. I would have preferred bold colors.
3) We dipped a square of tissue paper in a mixture of Elmer's glue and water and closed the hole in the egg.
4) Tomorrow, on Easter, after our egg hunt, we will break the eggs on each other's heads, as I used to do when I was young in Mexico.
Cheers to new traditions. Salud!
