HUGE GIVEAWAY: Something for YOU plus a FRIEND (plus 3 other lucky winners!)

Oooooh, get ready for this. 
I have a really, really, HUGE giveaway to share today.  And it’s going to knock you right off your seat.  (so, are you holding on tight? ;) )  Especially if you have always wanted a new camera. 



Up for grabs is TWO (yes, you read that right), 2 Canon Rebel Cameras!! One for you and, well, one for your friend! (Remember how we did this a while ago?  It was way too exciting to not do again.)  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 are also THREE $100 cash gift cards for the lucky runner’s up.


All you have to do is “Like” the Facebook Pages of the bloggers who helped make this giveaway possible, using the links below.  (You really will like them – they are some great sites!!)  Then enter your information in the short form at the end of this post so we know how to contact you if you win! This form will serve as your entry – so be sure to complete it accurately.


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

 It’s also the first DSLR camera I owned and was the only one I used on my blog until about a year ago.  (And I still use it as my back-up……you know, when I drop my bigger camera on the concrete and need something to use while the other one is in the shop. Yes, it happened. Eeek!)  The Canon Rebel does so much.  And takes some beautiful pictures. 


Anyway, 2 fancy little cameras are up are ready to be given away.  And yes, 3 $100 gift cards.

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



This giveaway will close midnight on 8/29, so hurry it up!  ENTER!  (Must be a resident of U.S. or Canada to enter.)


 GIVEAWAY CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    awww, i was really excited when i read this but then realized it was only for people who lived in america and canada, what a shame, i live in the uk. nevermind, good luck to all you lucky americans and canadians. hmm….maybe i can find a deal as good as this somewhere else on the net.

      Ashley says:

      I know, I’m so sorry! We had to limit it to U.S. and Canada because trying to ship a prize this size would require huge gift taxes and fees, almost as much as the prize itself. I really hope we can find a way to include more countries next time, but yes, I totally agree……kind of a bummer!

    Facebook stopped me from entering thru this blog so I had to like the last 4 blogs directly from Facebook. I hope I’m still eligible.

    • 2.1
      Ashley says:

      Hmmmm, I wonder if it’s because I was applying some updates with the text and may have messed up the form. I refreshed the facebook form and hopefully no one else will have any problems. If you were able to fill out the entry form, you should be just fine.

      Thanks for letting me know,

        Tori Hafen says:

        I liked all of them directly through facebook, does that still count or do I need to like them through here?

          Ashley says:

          Nope, you don’t have to like them here too. But be sure to fill out the form with your name and email, so that you can complete your entry. :)

      • 2.1.2
        Amber says:

        The same thing happened to me with the last 4 blogs, I logged in and liked them directly from facebook as well.

    I entered this last time and was hoping to win but wasn’t too disappointed since I had a camera, now that my camera isn’t in great working shape I hope I win, but good luck to everyone who enters :)

    This giveaway is amazing!! I liked all of the pages above, but for some reason it was not showing that I liked 3 of them. Thanks for offering this. I would be so blessed if I win! Good luck to everyone!

    • 5.1
      Ashley says:

      Can you tell me which ones? Maybe it’s an error on our end. Hmmmm…

      • 5.1.1
        Erin says:

        Skip to my Lou, Make It and Love It, and Modge Podge rocks. It kept saying please enter the words shown when I tried to log in, so I ended up liking them from my own page, but it wasn’t showing up on your site that I liked them.

          Ashley says:

          Will you refresh your page and see if it works now? I re-entered those forms… maybe that’s all it was. Are those three showing that you “like” them from my page now?

          Anyone else having troubles????


          • Christine says:

            I had to go to each FB page separately to like them, I got an error message when I tried to like directly from this page. But… worth it to enter!! I love, love, love Canon Rebel. I would love to have one and share one :-)

          • Erin says:

            Yay, It worked that time. I was able to like their page directly from your website! Thanks!

    margo says:

    I need clarification. One entry, per person. If I entered via another post (Pick Your Plum) can I do one entry for the other blogs that are participating? Or does one really mean one? Don’t want to cancel myself out, or cheat. Cheaters never prosper! =)

    • 8.1
      Ashley says:

      Yes, only one entry. If you filled out another form on someone else’s blog, any other forms filled out just won’t count. You won’t be disqualified…….but only one entry per person will be submitted. SO no worries!

    I so need a camera for my blogging. I only have my camera phone right now. Unfortunately my camera broke. Then my laptop got hurt. Not sure who I would give the other camera to. Might give it to my husband because we love to double up pictures. But most likely I will give it to my son’s school.

    Emily Jensen says:

    Hi. I have a quick question. I “liked” everything, then entered to win. When I went to share the giveaway on FB, I noticed I was logged in as my 11 year old son. I came back here and “liked” everything as me, but I didnt re-enter, as I didnt want to enter twice or “cheat” Do the likes have to come before the entry, or will my entry still be good since I liked things under my email afterward? Thanks (does this make any sense at all)

    Emily says:

    I tried “liking” all these. Then every single time I clicked a like it asked for me to log into facebook. Then around the end it came up with a message something to the effect of “write the words seen in the box”. So I went straight to facebook and like all of these. But then I couldn’t see how to complete the entry as there was not a “submit” button anywhere or a place to save my name and email to. Am I doing something wrong? Please help! This would be an awesome giveaway to win!
