Today I want to introduce you to 2 of my blog sponsors and
invite you to enter for giveaways from each! I think it’s a good thing to learn
about cool things that are available out there.. that you may not be aware of!


Have you checked out the “log your memory”?  I love their tagline- “log your memory
to later jog your memory!”.. I can tell you that I need help to jog my memory!
It’s amazing how quickly I FORGET critical details!

to cut and paste the info that they sent me… I think it really gives a good
idea what these folks are all about! They have SO much going on!:

    I would have to use a picture that I just recently took of my 15 month old daughter. What I would want to remember about that picture was the way the wind blew her prety curls and how she could have cared less about me and my camera. Cause she had her eyes on the kitty’s around the farm 🙂 Makes me smile just thinking of it!!!

    My standout moment today would have to be that my dogwood has started to bloom!!! Every year those beautiful white blossoms capture my heart and I know that spring is finally here. It would be awesome to have a picture enlarged in my home to keep the feeling alive year-round.

    Guess I should read the instructions- I would put the picture of my new family at our wedding. We included our children (biologically my husbands)in our wedding- we both made vows to them. It would be nice to have thought to write down how we all felt at that moment in time- I just love the idea to have a place to list things and write down what is going on day by day in your life. Once again AMAZING giveaway

  • Great giveaways – thanks for the chance to win. For the Standout Mount I’d love to feature my daughter, her son, and me — the proud grandma. Glad to have you home Heidi!

    Very cool! If I were to win, I’d definitely use a recent picture I took of my daughters. They are both walking away from me, holding hands, and at 10 and 4, it’s an awesome sight to see. 🙂

    I would mount a picture of my little sister Brittany and myself. It is a special memory to me. It was taken at a party and at the time she was in remission from Leukemia. I love that picture and how happy we were together. I lost her on april 6, 2002 from leukemia, she was just 10 years old. It’s a treasured memory.

    My stand out mount would have to be a photo of my grandmother, mother and daughter taken 1 week before her death at Christmas…she was in perfect health and just ‘fell asleep’ in her recliner with her hands crossed on her lap with the most peaceful look on her face-I’m sure my grandfather was there to lead her. A year before she died, she was the victim of a violent sexual crime in her apartment by a 30 year old man who lived one floor up from her…she went through the trial and sentencing- her strength at 86 was amazing and I am blessed her blood runs through my veins. This photo means the world to me.
    Great giveaway! Thank you!

    A sepia-tone photograph of me & my daughters which was taken this past December … it’s my favorite photo in the house although it’s bitter sweet – it represents HOPE for the future, yet it’s sad for us all since it was our first Christmas since my separation with their dad.

    I have a photo that I love–it’s a pic of my husband and me in Alaska (in front of s glacier). I want to remember how much fun we had together. It was so hard to spend the money on such a big trip, but it was so worth it. I also want to remember to enjoy life and each other.

    These Standout mounts are lovely! I’ve been slowly working on a wall photo collage for my daughters play room. I have an silly new photo of her putting on lipstick that would be perfect in a Standout Mount! Love the modern look of them. What I remember every time I look at this photo is how fast my little girl is growing up! Only two and putting on lipstick like a pro! Before we know it she’ll be moving out!

  • I have the log your memory, but would love to get the new book!!! I would put a picture of my 4 grandsons on the standout mount.

    Thx for the opportunity! I would put a picture I took 3 years ago at the beach. One day after coming back to the beach cottage, my hubby got all three kids in the shower area to rinse off the sand–(they were 8, 9 and 10)—They were standing there, and I love their little pudgy toes–so I ran up the stairs to get my camera, and took a pic of all of their wet feet on the wood unbeknownst to them…I call the pic ‘beach feet’ in my scrapbook…one of my faves of all time!

    For the standout mount I would use a picture taken almost 9 years ago. It’s a picture of me, my then 2 year old son, and my then newborn son. It was their first “meeting” and my oldest had brought a balloon for his baby brother. In the picture he insisted on having his baby brother hold onto the balloon. it brings back so many wonderful memories – it has become my favorite picture ever.
