Happy Saint Patrick’s Day y’all!
(That is what happens when you have an Irish grandmother and a mother born in Texas. Holla!)
I figured I’d jump in and talk about saving you some GREEN!
I nearly fainted, when I opened an email from Shutterfly asking if we’d want to join their Shutterfly Yearbooks campaign this year.
Y’all remembered last time they tempted fate and I pulled out my husband’s yearbooks, right? And posted that really awesomesauce picture of him in
hot pants basketball shorts that very nearly revealed his manly bits. I could be really mean and post that picture here again – especially since I owe the dude some retaliation for his Urgent Care Toe Yoga ninja picture that he hacked my blog with recently.
But Shutterfly forgave the hot pants picture and invited us to try out their yearbook for free – as well as offer one of you guys one too!
I would never do a sponsored post unless I believed in the product and Shutterfly has been my go-to for years. But in this case, Shutterfly really hits the nail on the head:
Make it a school year to remember. Shutterfly Yearbooks are the easiest way to preserve school memories.
Emphasis on EASY.
Shutterfly accounts are ideal to share in secure groups – perfect for parents to add photos of school events because an “official school photographer” isn’t always around for those moments. (You know, when you’re chaperoning the group of crazy boys at the zoo and catch that shot of all four of them picking their noses at the otter exhibit? Yeah)
You know how I usually like to kind of put our own Miracle spin on stuff? Yeah, I’m sure you guys remember the Christmas Card Debacle of 2012, right?
I could totally picture this working for our little school. So I substituted a few of our wee family members for some students to show you the kinds of easy pages they have to just “fill in the blanks”. Waaay easier than scrapbooking and this way all the families can enjoy it.
So here’s my twist on it… I think homeschoolers can get slighted when it comes to yearbooks. This would also be an ultimate way to capture your homeschooling adventure each year. Come on, it would rock, right?
Now for the giveaway deets! Winner takes home their own 20 page 8x8 photobook! You’ve already captured the memories. They’re sitting in your computer
lonely waiting to be shared. Shutterfly can even dump them all into pages for you once you’ve uploaded them… then you can mix them around how you like.
Just to be clear… you can pick any 8x8 photobook – it doesn’t have to be a yearbook style (hint hint… all you friends with new babies!)
No going to the craft store and buying eleventy hundred cute embellishments that will make a 10” thick scrapbook that those eleventy hundred embellishments will ultimately fall out of. (Hardy scrapbookers of the world, I salute you!) Seriously, y’all remember what happened to me when I took my kid to Michaels, right? Craft paint purgatory.
So do yourself a favor and get yourself in the mix to win one of these books. Prize includes shipping!
Giveaway closes March 21st.
Oh… and I totally changed my mind.
Look at the cute guy with the knee injury ;)
