Seriously Huge Giveaway. Something for YOU plus a FRIEND.


Holy stinkin’ smokes. 


I have a really cool giveaway to share today.  And it’s going to blow your socks off.  (You shouldn’t have socks on anyway.  It’s warm out. ;) )  Especially if you have always wanted a new camera.  What better time to start taking great pictures than summer time.  Lots of beautiful light.





Up for grabs is TWO (yes, you read that right), 2 Canon Rebel Cameras!! One for you and, well, one for your friend! If you win, you’ll receive this fabulous camera plus one more to give to your friend. You and a friend can learn together and start sharing pictures between the two of you.  And then start sharing tips and cool photo tricks.  So you may want to increase your odds by spreading the word and getting all those “friends” to sign up.


And, just because two winners just didn’t seem like enough, there’s also a $100 cash gift card for the lucky runner up.




Don’t know much about the Canon Rebel?  Read more about this camera HERE.  


It’s also the first DSLR camera I owned and was the only one I used on my blog until about 8 months ago.  (And I still use it as my back-up.  In fact, I was using it all of last month after I dropped my bigger camera on concrete and had to be sent away for repair.  Ouch, I know.  A little clumsy.)  The Canon Rebel does so much.  And takes some beautiful pictures. 


Anyway, 2 fancy little cameras are up are ready to be given away.

So hurry and enter.  I know, I know, you’re worried about your chances. But for something as big as this, it’s worth a shot, right? :)


Signing up is easy: Just “like” all the bloggers who helped make this giveaway possible and fill out the short form below.  (This giveaway is in no way affiliated with Facebook. The submission of the form below is your entry to the giveaway.  Also, leaving a comment on this actual post will not actually enter you into the giveaway.  But I like comments, so leave all you want. ;))

      Are you serious?! This is so awesome! I’ve been wanting a DSLR for years, but it seems like something more important always comes up when it’s time to buy one. I would be over the moon to win one of these for my hubby and I to capture our 2, soon to be 3 in abut a week, children. We’ve waited so long! :) Thank you! :)

If you don’t but know of someone who might like the exposure and festivities, send them my way.

    Heffalump says:

    That is a really great giveaway! I hate it though, when we have to like every page in order to enter a giveaway. I haven’t heard of half of them, and it feels dishonest to “like” something just in the hopes of winning a prize. I’d love to win something like that. And I like several of those pages, but not all of them. So I guess that will keep me out of the running.

      Ashley says:

      No worries at all, all you need to do to enter is submit the form with your name and email (which is only used to contact you…’s not sold or anything). If you want to “like” some of the others who have hosted this huge giveaway, it’s totally up to you. But I totally get what you’re saying, so don’t worry one bit!! :)

      Ashley says:

      If you change your mind Emily, you aren’t required to “like” any of them. You just need to submit the form with your info on it (so that we can contact you if you win). And I get you on the facebook thing…….I don’t have a personal facebook account either and sometimes I miss out on things because of that. But I do like it as a way to share my blog because some people always check facebook first and appreciate the update there. So I see both sides and am happy to accommodate……but I understand your side too. Anyway, hope that clears things up. :)

    Cute Ideas. I showed a few tutorials to my husband Tim and he saw your picture and says that he used to work at Broulims in Rexburg with you. I think your car was broken an he and his twin brother Paul gave you a ride. maybe. Can’t remember exactly. I was too busy wondering if he used to have a thing for you. ha.

    I would give so much to win this grand prize. My mother has wanted a Canon Rebel XTi for so long but I am unable to afford one at this time. Mom is my best friend and has stood by my side so many times. She was there when my son died in 2005 and last summer when I almost passed from gastric bypass. This would be such a small token to show her how much I love her. As for the second camera, I would love to give it to my 14 year old son. Walker has Asperger’s and for the first time in his life stepped out of his comfort zone and applied to be on the yearbook staff at high school. HE MADE IT. I would love to be able to provide him with a camera to help him become the best he could be.
