Well, gang, you may remember that a few months ago I posted my entry for the Kidlit Fall Writing Frenzy! contest. I’m happy to report I did win one of the many prizes 🏆😁: a SHUTTERFLY Gift Certificate! It was the prize I most wanted from the moment I first saw it, knowing my granddaughter would love and cherish it, and so would I 🥰Not until I went to personalize and order this GORgeous book did I discover it is illustrated by THE Mary Grandpré! Yes, that Mary Grandpré of “U.S. Harry Potter” fame. No wonder I was so drawn to it; her work is aMAZing 😍🤩😎📚
I also didn’t know the certificate would be so generous I would also be able to obtain these other gifts I chose:
- a custom Memory Game (I incorporated images of all Charlotte’s immediate family)
- and a magnet with a pic of her for my parents.
I had no idea how much Shutterfly offered in way of personalized items, and I can tell you, I was totally impressed with their beauty and quality. I could NOT be more thrilled. 🏆❤😁🧡🤗💛👌💚😎💙🎆💜
A HUGE “thank you” to Kaitlyn Leann Sanchez and Lydia Lukidis for all their hard work in running this fanTASTic contest, and for the dozens of generous prize contributors, certainly Shutterfly for me personally. This was a contest very much worth entering 👍🏆😄
