Hubby's Birthday Gift and my first giveaway!

Pin It    This year I had a very limited budget for Hubby's gift because he really needed some new pants, and we decided to use his Birthday for it. But I still wanted to give him something special. A few weeks ago I   found this cute idea on Pinterest. I could not afford their design but I happened to have a Shutterfly code for free 8x8 hard cover book, so I decided to create my own (I still payed shipping and handling but it made the whole project about $8):

   The kids drew some pictures, made hands and feet imprints:

They cut out hearts:

   I asked my older kid to answer some questions about his Dad:

 Honestly, the possibilities are endless! I even added a little saying that I found on Pinterest too:

:) Cute, isn't it?
   A few questions I asked my Kid were:

What does Daddy love about Mommy?
How do you know your Dad loves you?
What do you like to do with Daddy?
Do you want to be like Dad? Why?
Where does Daddy work?
How old is your Dad?
Can you describe your Dad?

   And even: Who is better - Dad or Scooby Do? I got a very long hesitant pause until he finally said that he just can't choose because he likes them both :) Some of these answers can be absolutely hilarious! I really enjoyed doing this little project with the kids, and I know my husband will cherish this gift more than anything we could buy him.

   And I happen to have another free* Shutterfly 8x8 hardcover book code to give to one lucky reader of my blog. Unfortunately, this giveaway is limited to U.S. residents only due to some Shutterfly restrictions. I'm really sorry, all my wonderful friends from Canada, Russia, Australia and other countries :(

MANDATORY ENTRY: Follow my blog (if you don't already) and leave a comment telling me the best gift you've ever received in your life.

ADDITIONAL ENTRY: Mention this giveaway on your blog. Leave a comment that you did it here.

This giveaway will end next Friday, May 18th. The code doesn't expire until Dec. 2012 so you have plenty of time to use it for Father's Day gift or even save it for Christmas if you'd like.
