October Fun & A Giveaway!

Saturday, October 1, 2011


Hey ya'll! I'm finally back after having "camera fits" all week. I'm going shopping at Best Buy today. Hopefully I can find one in my price range. Wish me luck! {if you have a recommendation please let me know.}

Since I've been gone so much this week, I wanted to give away some new paper goodies. {Keep reading to the end for the giveaway details.}

In the meantime, if you like Halloween I hope you all will play along in the fun challenge going on at Really Reasonable Ribbon. There's a fun prize up for grabs too. You can play along HERE!

I mixed polka dots, Creative Charms Halloween sparkle stickers, RRR lace trim and orange ribbon. Be sure to visit the RRR Store to get your ribbon goodies today!


Now for my fun giveaway!
There's a bunch of new paper collections out right now.
One of my faves is from Little Yellow Bicycle.

Just comment below and I will pick one winner to receive this gorgeous "Hello Fall" paper & embellies from LYB.

I'll announce the winner next Saturday, October 8th.
Good Luck & Have a Happy Weekend.

Can't wait to hear what camera you end up with...I just use a point & shoot that I picked up at Target on a Black friday event..

I am on a camera hunt right now, too-- my camera was stolen on the last day of my vacation :-( (Thankfully, though, I had most of the pictures uploaded to my computer; but I did lose about a day and a half). I don't know what sort of camera you're looking for, but I have been looking at "advanced" point-and-shoots of the "travel zoom" variety. In that category, the Canon Powershot SX230HS, the Sony Cybershot DSC-HX9V, and the Nikon Coolpix S9100 have caught my eye... And I'm very nearly ready to choose the Canon as my winner. There are some great reviews at http://www.dcresource.com/ and http://www.dpreview.com/ that I found really helpful. Email me if you're interested in the specific comparisons I was looking at :)

P.S. this comment is SO LONG! but hopefully it's helpful...

well, good luck to you on the camera hunt :) cute card angi!!!
I haven't seen these papers before, I must be living under a rock recently, lol.

Jean said...

Love your card, it is so fun! I have a couple of different cameras (I am a little bit addicted to them according to my hubby, lol), but I will say that I think the Nikon brand is my favorite. For my blog pics I have one of the smaller Coolpix Touch Screen Cameras of theirs and it works really well. Also, thanks for the chance to win, those papers are adorable.

Jamie said...

such a cute card thanks for sharing. Not sure what your price range is for your camera.. but I recommend Nikon. I shoot weddings and have a studio (for doing shoots of my baby girls) and I use strictly Nikon.. they are the best. I own other cameras (olympus, cannon, kodak, fuji, & sony) but never use them because they just dont produce the same quality or work quite as well. Hope this helps. I only use DSLR's but i also own snap shots.. and just 2 months ago researched a lot of snap shots (we bought my mother in law one for her bday).. ended up getting her a nikon... and if you're interested.. I found this Nikon for the best price at walmart.com.. this was after going and looking online (and in store) at many different places including best buy, ritz camera, and costco.. For some reason walmart charged like $30 more for the camera in store than they did online. the camera we bought my MIL was the Nikon coolpix s3100. best of luck and thanks for the chance to win. :)
