Photo Contests

by jessicaturner on January 15, 2009

People are always telling me I should enter pictures of Elias in photo contests. I usually just say thank you, but never enter any. However, since I thought I had some really fabulous Christmas photos, I decided to enter a few.

Surprisingly I won two!

The Chicago Tribute sponsored a holiday photo contest and my picture of Elias won second place. Yay for free prints. I am going to use these prints to get caught up on my Becky Higgins baby scrapbook.

We also won a prize package from Per Annum, thanks to many of you! I love this company’s products and am delighted to have some new goodies to use to scrapbook Elias. I really appreciate each of you who went to the blog and voted for the picture of Elias. Please know that I don’t take you and your kind support for granted.

Oh, and Per Annum is offering a special right now – you can take 10% off your order just by entering BLOG, so if you need some amazing paper products, albums, frames, etc., check them out.

Matthew and I are going on a date night tonight – just a nice dinner. Our sweet friend Emma is going to watch Elias. It will be lovely to spend some time together over a good meal.

What are your plans for tonight?

Congrats! Elias is a cutie and very photogenic. TGIF! I’m really excited for tonight because me and my hubby are hanging out with his sister and brother-in-law who just moved back into town! We’ve so missed them, and are looking forward to a low key game night. Enjoy your date night!

Congratulations on winning two contests! I am staying home all day today and tonight too. We are expecting a bad windstorm all across the island chain of Hawaii and most schools and businesses are closed.

Congratulations on winning and yay for date night!
My hubby and I had a date night last night…the 1st one in a long time…we went and saw the final showing of Twilight. It was a great movie and I am so blessed to have a hubby that enjoyed it also!
It is too cold here tonight to do much. We are staying in with the kiddos and just going to enjoy being together.
Hope you and Matthew have an awesome time tonight! God Bless :)

Congratulations on your wins. I just love your photos…they are so cute. I just wish my little ones were younger than Elias so I could copycat some of your ideas! :)

Date night for us, as well! Grandma and Grandpa have Zeke. Congratulations on the photo contests!

What a sweetie! You can’t help but to smile when you see his sweet little face:) Congrats on your “photo finishes” too! Elias is a lucky little boy that he will have a wonderful memory book of his childhood! My kids have lots of pictures and mementos, they’re just all collected in a big rubbermade tote:( I need to get motivated and fix that!
