One More Birthday Give-Away from Shutterfly!!!!

I LOVE photos of my sweet grandsons, so when I can give or receive a gift with their little faces on it . . . well, it would be difficult to find a better gift for sure! If you are looking for great Mother's Day gift ideas, definitely take a look at these items Shutterfly arranged for me to order and review . . . and please stay "tuned" because they are making a wonderful give-away available, too!

First of all, I was able to design and order a new Mousepad and Desktop Plaque from Shutterfly. If you order a mousepad you'll find you can choose to show anywhere from one to ten photos with 11 different lay-out options available to you - I chose the six-picture mousepad. Once you decide how many photos you want to use and select you lay-out, you simply download the photos and place them in the places you want them to be! The process for the desktop plaque is the same - there are 32 different plaques available to choose from and they are available in three sizes. I chose the, "Love Makes us a Family" plaque in a 5x7 size - it has five spaces for photos - the only hard part was choosing just five photos to use!!! I have to say it was so easy to download the photos I wanted to use and put them in place - ordering was simple and within just a few days the finished projects arrived at my door!!!

I was also able to design and order the new Photo Cube from Shutterfly . . . and I have to say I LOVE the cube!!! I was able to select five photos, place them in the locations I wanted them on the cube and then ordered the cube - again, in just a few short days the cube arrived at my door! I love the finished cube - and as difficult as it was to decide on just five photos, I love the pictures of my sweet grandsons on the photo cube!!! I am sure I'll be ordering additional photo cubes down the road!!!!

Every one of these items from Shutterfly have a "quality" look and feel to them. The mousepad is thick and the colors of the photos do not have a "pasty" look to them. I have a mouspad from Shutterfly which I've been using for a year and the photos are still fresh - I use this mousepad everyday, but the photos have not rubbed off or gone dull as some photo mousepads tend to do. The desktop plaque has a sturdy feel and the photos have great color - nice and clear! The photo cube pictures have a "texture" to them and they are sure to hold up to little ones looking at their pictures!!! What a great way to share photos of ones you love with ones you love!!! Any of these items would make tremendous Mother's Day and/or Father's Day gifts . . . or just an amazing way to brighten your own day, too!

Plus, if you do order something today only - May, 7, 2013 - you will save $15 on any order of $30 or more! Just use the code - PERFECTGIFT - and you will get your order by Mother's Day!!!!

I am so very happy to say not only did Shutterfly make these available for me to make and order, but they are making a photo cube available for me to give away as well!!!! So, how do you enter this give-away, which will be on May 28, 2013?
