I lovvvve a good scrapbook — although don’t ask me how many months I’m behind! — and I also love a good photobook.
I know some people who are strictly scrapbook-y or strictly photobook-y, but I’m in both camps. I have a system where I scrapbook each month (“for me”) and create hardcover photo book as a birthday gift for D each year — and I’ll do the same for C, of course.
The idea is that the photobooks are “theirs” to eventually take with them when they move out, but I love the things so much, I think I’m going to have to start ordering copies for myself, as well. Although the idea of them moving out is IMPOSSIBLE to think about right now, isn’t it? Oh God. I will be a sobby mess.
Anyway, back to the important business of FREE STUFF! The good people at Shutterfly have asked me to tell my U.S. mamas* about their new Long Live Summer Photo Contest. They have a new theme each week, and you just need to upload your fave photo — and a witty caption — to their Facebook page.
Prizes include $500 Shutterfly giftcards (or, as I like to call it, Christmas presents for the whole family DONE LIKE DINNER) and even a trip for four to the Bahamas.
What are you waiting for? Upload that adorable shot of your toddler drinking out of their new watergun. Or is that just D?
*This particular contest is only for you lucky Americans, but I’ll keep you posted on if Shutterfly runs a similar promotion for us Northern girls!
