Shutterfly Spring Annoucements & Photo Book Giveaway
Have you noticed we’ve been in a celebratory mood around here? I don’t know what could have possibly given it away, besides maybe my endless posts about Evan’s 2nd birthday. I just really love any occasion that involves a good party. And who doesn’t? Dressing up and eating delicious food are two of the greatest joys of life.
And it’s not ending yet – my sister in law is getting married in May and we’re driving to Ohio to celebrate marrying off the last of E’s siblings to a dashing Air Force officer. I really really love weddings, and not just because I hear there’s going to be drinking and dancing at this one.* E is part of the bridal party (and is wearing his fancy dress uniform) so it will be a Major Picture Taking event. I can neither confirm nor deny I am in the market for matching seersucker outfits for the kids. I’ve already pulled out my camera manual so I can finally learn to use it without all my pictures turning out bright blue. (No, seriously, WHY are all my pictures so blue when I shoot in aperture preferred mode?) And once I take all the beautiful pictures, instead of letting them just sit in my computer I’m going to turn them into a photo book from Shutterfly. I’ve ordered photo books from Shutterfly before – I used one for Little Evan’s guest book at his first birthday and I ordered one with Caroline’s newborn/Christmas pictures. I LOVE them.
It’s so much easier than ordering prints and stuffing them into albums or – God forbid – attempting to scrapbook them. Seriously, even the words scrapbooking send me into convulsions or terror. These photo books were invented exactly for people like me.
Or if you’re celebrating something else, you can check out the adorable birth announcements and save the date cards (confidential to my friends Chris and Erin – I KNOW you need some save the dates! How cute are these:)
And hey, if I figure out my camera maybe I could take cute pictures for you! Although I can’t make any promises they won’t be blue. Perhaps you should consider teal and aqua as wedding colors?
*Sometimes our relatives get married in Mennonite churches so there is a lack of drinking. And dancing. And music. And caffeine. And happiness. JUST KIDDING. But just about the happiness. The rest is all true.
To put a little spring in your spring today, I’ve got a code for a FREE 8×8 photo book from Shutterfly to give away. To enter, just leave a comment on this post. It can be whatever you want, but if you need an idea let’s all share our favorite flavor of jelly bean (any by jelly bean I mean the fancy Jelly Belly kind because the other kinds are GROSS).
Mine is juicy pear. Yes I know the complete names for all the flavors.
Giveaway ends Sunday night. Code doesn’t include shipping costs. Be sure to use a real email in your comment so I can contact you. And thanks so much for entering!
