Shutterfly Card Worthy and a Giveaway

This week I was lucky enough to be invited to a GNO dinner 
with the lovely Heidi from HoneyBear Lane 
sponsored by Shutterfly
It was so much fun to learn about this amazing company,
their new mini site, look at their beautiful card samples, eat some delish food
and have a blast with some amazing ladies

Here is what I learned about shutterfly that I want to pass on to you
because I love you and I like to pass on great info to those I love :)

If you didn't already know shutterfly is the queen of beautiful Holiday cards 
and it is one of my favorite places to order mine through 
They are beautiful, great color quality and the paper quality is amazing 
They are also famous for their baby announcements, photo books, canvas prints, calendars
and all sorts of other photo gifts including mugs, blankets, mouse pads, 
iphone cases and soooo much more 

Here are some of my favorite Holiday cards this year...

Aren't they gorgeous? and this is just a teeny tiny bit of their HUGE selection
Have you ordered your Christmas cards yet? Well get on it :)
I love love love getting Christmas cards each year from my friends
and family and the photo cards are my absolute favorite 

So not only does shutterfly create these beautiful photo cards and
accessories they also just launched a new site that shares tips and tricks
on family photo ideas Here at Shutterfly Family Photos

My very favorite tip that I want to share with you is:
"Just be you. Provoke real moments. That's it"
"Every Photo is a #cardworthy one when it best
 reflects your family and who you are"

I am always so stressed this time of year trying to get the perfect family picture
Let me tell you we just got our family pictures taken last month and
it was full of melt downs, suckers, bribery
and stress from yours truly
Family pictures are hard especially when you have a 2 year old
and a baby but hey from now on I need to remember
a photo of the real us is much more fun to look at
and remember then the perfectly posed ones

 Some of your real moments may look a little like this one 
Perfect motherhood picture right there
Crying baby, mommy trying to cheer him up, and toddler in la la land

Or your cute toddler would rather make this face then smile at the camera
Or even run away from the photographer screaming "No take my picture"
Lovely right
But those are the real moments and there is nothing wrong with that

Other times you may be lucky enough to capture a picture when the kids
don't even know and get them in a sweet real moment like this
Doesn't that melt your heart
It is the perfect picture and shows exactly how much
my maddux loves to take care of his baby brother 

And these are some of my favorites 
playing together is what we love the most 

You may get something as sweet and simple as your little man
putting his hands in his pocket

playing with the leaves

or making spit bubbles

They aren't perfect but they are beautiful, real, they are my family
and I believe they are #cardworthy

So now that I have convinced you that Shutterfly is pretty much AMAZING
