Contest

For the past few days, I’ve been going through old photos. Not old, so much as neglected. You know the ones, the hundreds of digital photos that are stored on your hard drive that you email out once (if ever) to the grandparents, and then forget about? Yeah, those.

So anyway, I used this HP Photo Book where you simply drop your digital pictures in a program, select a design, and then the little scrapbook fairies that live in the computer (they’ve got paisley wings and their wands are pinking shears) arrange them into amazing memory books. I added text, and Voila! Jessica’s baby book was complete! While she is still a baby!

This coming from a woman who has never printed a digital photo in her life.

So Matty came in and obviously impressed with my unprecedented creativity asked, “Where’s mine?”

Since he’s only seven, his baby book still isn’t complete. So then I made a Matty book. And so all things are equal, Stevie and Amy books, too. I took photos from photographers, other family members, my phone…What I didn’t have stored on a computer, I scanned. I put them all in these seamless pages that looked as though we’ve been followed by particularly creative paparazzi our whole lives.

And it only took me 4 minutes.

No, it probably took a little longer, but not much since you know I don’t have much time these days.

So I thought I’d offer up a contest of sorts.

The first person to identify these people in this photo wins a Photo Book (a blank one for you to fill, not of my children of course!)



A winner for who can tell me what happened to the dog in this picture:



And still yet another winner for the cleverest caption for this:


Post your comments here and we’ll judge shortly. I’ll even throw in a copy of my book, so start getting creative!

(P.S. The kind folks at HP have offered a 20% off coupon for the Photo Book which will be available starting next week!)

I'm guessing that the dog met a child with a marker.

Good to see you again, t! Half right--Amy did have a little run in with Jingle, but not marker...

if not a marker, then i'm guessing someone thought the doggie needed some lipstick. now off to think of a great caption

Tracey said...

We have winner #1! It is indeed an expensive tube of lipstick decorating Jingle's face. You can't tell from the pic that she had eyeliner as well...

I was reading your blog while my Sebastien was sitting on my lap. We scrolled down to the pic of Amy and Bash said "Ohhh, a cute little girl." That's my caption. He has good taste!
