Betty Crocker Fruit Flavored Snacks + $25 Donation Giveaway

I recently had the chance to participate in a cool promotion through MyBlogSpark for Betty Crocker.  My girls love fruit roll-ups, gushers, fruit by the foot, etc.  My youngest has snack in school and this is one of the snacks considered healthy, so I try to let her bring these in once a week as a treat.  

Through May 31st, Betty Crocker is running a great promotion called the Win & Give campaign.  I was sent 2 boxes of fruit snacks to participate, plus I have already purchased a ton of these boxes.  My 8 year old is dying to win this giveaway :)  A $25 donation to the One Laptop per Child program was also made on my behalf (so excited about that!)

Each and every day, one child in the U.S. will win a new laptop. And, they will then match that by donating a 2nd laptop to a child in Africa via One Laptop per Child program. Watch for specially marked packages of Fruit Roll Ups, Gushers, Fruit by the Foot and Stickerz & Shapes then enter the code from your box on Win One Give One.

Now, they would like to give the same prize pack out to one lucky reader of mine! To get your 2 Free Boxes of Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks & have a $25 donation made on your behalf, please blog this giveaway.   If you don't have a blog, then you can tweet, facebook or email 3 friends about it.  Normally, I do not require this, but I think it is a great cause & I would like to get the word out!

Extra Entries ~

You can also get extra entries for being a subscriber, follower, etc.  

Contest will end on March 29th

New Studio Books from American Greetings PhotoWorks

I've had a love of photography all of my life.  I remember begging my parents for a camera and getting my first in 4th grade.  When I got married and had my first baby in 1997, I started scrapbooking.  I had always sort of scrapbooked, but I used to use those magnetic albums and put in captions, ticket stubs, etc.
When I discovered photo books, I fell in love.  Such a quick way to document parts of your life.  With kids, it gets hard to keep up on scrapbooking.  Photo books are great for vacations, trip to the zoo, birthdays, dance recitals, weddings and baby books.  I love them for some slices of life to add to my collection of photo albums and scrapbooks.
Speaking of baby books, American Greetings PhotoWorks now makes creating beautifully designed and personalized baby photo books easy and fun. PhotoWorks recently launched a new book creator, PhotoWorks Studio, and with it a new line of photo books called Studio Books, offering the easiest and most creative way to create with confidence while recording life's special occasions and milestones. With Studio Books, you simply add your own digital photos to American Greetings uniquely designed templates and select from specially chosen colors, fonts, artwork, and backgrounds.
When finished, you can easily order copies of your book for yourself and the proud grandparents or email an online version to distant friends and family. Currently offered in wedding, baby, travel, and everyday themes, Studio Books will soon expand to include photo book templates to capture birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and other special events.
I found uploading my pictures very easy.  I was already a photoworks customer, but I did not have my daughters baby pictures scanned.  Since I have two daughters, I ended up using baby pictures from both of them to make a book of both my girls!  Very easy template design, I really liked the service a lot.
It took me awhile to find my photos, work on scanning them, etc.  I have not received my baby photo book yet, so I will update the post when I do.  I am confident you will love photoworks though, I have purchased from them many times over the years.  The continue to get better!
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of American Greetings PhotoWorks and received a free photo book to facilitate my review.
