My Very First Giveaway

I've never before hosted a giveaway on my blog.  That's because I've never had anything to give away!  Well, now I do! 

You all know I'm a huge Shutterfly fan!  I have several photo books and I just keep making more!  Gone are the days of putting snapshots into those big albums with the clear, crinkly protective covers.  I was such a procrastinator when it came to actually putting the photos in the albums.  I would print the pictures, they would sit in the envelope, and then I would end up sticking the envelope in a box.  I have a huge box in the basement of snapshots from when my boys were babies (The Pre-Digital Age).

Photo memory books make so much more sense!  They're beautiful and you can completely customize them.  I use mine to tell a story.  Did you know that Shutterfly has totally updated their photo book program?  If you use the Custom Path, you have complete creative control over how your page looks.  You can move this frame a little to the left, you can make this frame bigger and that one smaller.  I love it!  (I actually wonder if that was in response to the suggestion I sent them a year ago?!)

(By the way, I'm not getting paid for this post.  I just like these products so much!)

So here's my giveaway:
I am offering a FREE 7x9 Photo Book to not one, but FIVE PEOPLE!  How awesome is that?  The offer ends December 14th so you would need to get started on your album right away.  My suggestion- summer adventures!  Think of all the exciting things you did this summer, from 4th of July barbecues to day trips at the pool.  Put all those memories together in an album and you can relive your memories for years to come!  Or you can make an album as a Christmas gift for someone else.  Grandma would be thrilled!

The Giveaway starts immediately and ends tomorrow (Saturday) at 9:00 AM EST.  To qualify, you must be a follower of She Says.  Leave a comment here if you are.  You can get a bonus entry for following She Says on Facebook.  I will randomly pick five winners tomorrow.  Good luck!

I love photo books too, although I haven't made nearly enough of them. I enjoy them much better than scrapbooking, but I really admire those who can do the beautiful scrapbooks I've seen. It's just not mine strong suit.

Anywya, went to your page and clicked on "like". Do I need to do anything else?

I am a follower of She Says...I love your site! :-) I'm also a big fan of Shutterfly...and just received an order of calendars from them! My sister spent a week with me in September, and I'm in the process of uploading photos to Shutterfly to create a photo book for her. What perfect timing, huh?! :-) Thank you for considering me in your free Giveaway...and keep up the great writing! :-)

What an awesome giveaway! I have been looking at photobooks for grandparent gifts this year. Both sets have been putting on the guilt trip for not getting as many pictures since we moved this summer. I am a blog and Facebook follower

Liked the facebook page now!

Hi She! I left you a FB comment earlier...also "liked" your FB page, too. Do they count as extra entries? :-)

BTW...your kids are adorable (and I'm not just saying that to get a free book)! :-)

Seriously...if I don't win, that's OK, too. I hope your giveaway recipients enjoy their photo memory books! :-)
