September Photo Linky Announcement! Don't Miss This One

I could not wait to announce the next monthly photo linky. Because of a topic that everyone can find a picture for AND because of the amazing prizes! In fact, if you "like," Things I Can't Say on facebook, you already know some of this because I spilled part of the details over there this past weekend!

A few weeks ago, I shared my Magic Moment with you. For me, it was a moment when my boys were acting like the best of friends. No fighting. It was so sweet. 

But, a Magic Moment could be anything, really: from big, life-changing events like getting married or having a baby to the small moments like a child's smile or a fun party or a pretty sunset.  

Some of my recent Magic Moments: brotherly love, a quiet moment, and the first day of school. 

Everyone has a Magic Moment.  Starting on Monday, September 12 thru Monday, September 19th, you can share yours! 

To participate: Create a post sharing your Magic Moment(s), grab the button below, and link up! Linky will open at 12:01am 9/12 and close 11:59pm 9/19 (ET). Pics submitted should be ones that you have permission to post. Please do not use images you googled or took from someone else- big no, no, y'all. 

Button by The Frilly Coconut

Now, for the prizes! Our sponsor for this event is ThisLife, which keeps all of your photos and videos safe and organized for you!  You can try it out for yourself  and download a 6 month free trial of ThisLife. You can also like ThisLife on facebook and follow them on twitter

The prizes from ThisLife will help you to capture even more of those Magic Moments. Winners will be selected randomly from those who submit a valid entry

Runner- up Prizes: Three participants will win a $50 Visa card to help you have more of those Magic Moments! 

Grand Prize: One grand prize winner will win a Canon Power Shot s95 (approx. value $375-400) to capture even more of those moments! 

I cannot wait to see all of your Magic Moments! Thanks to ThisLife for such great prizes!

I read the title too fast and thought it said "Senior Photos" (as in my h.s. senior pic). I was SO NOT going to link that monstrosity up. Thankfully my coffee kicked in a little and I learned how to read. This is a much better idea. Looking forward to this link up.

No rule on how often you can win on my blog. Only one win per contest, though.

Four prizes= four different winners.

Shell, you have the best link-ups!
And I just read your "It's Not Fair" post, and the post explaining your Bear's lead poisoning, and how you kept pushing for answers...it had me in tears. How heartbreaking for you. I hope you've had some resolution since then. You are a great mama bear to your boys!!

I usually don't link up to things but this really is a great idea and such awesome prizes. I'm putting this down in my "SUPER COOL" to do list. Not the dumb work one. That one is lame.

This is a great idea! Hopefully I can take part. If not, it'll probably because I'm in the hospital living my own magical moment giving birth :p
