Win a Free Photo Session!

enter to win a free photo shoot

Sooo…  who wants to win a FREE PHOTOSHOOT???

Well, you could very well win yourself one.  I’m giving away a session of choice (limited to my “a family affair”, “sweethearts”, “it’s all you”, “pawtraits”, and “headshots” sessions) to one lucky Facebook fan.  All you have to do to enter is pop on over to FB, like my page if you haven’t already, and then share both my page and this note:  https://www.facebook.com/notes/td-photography/win-a-photoshoot-with-td-photography-saskatoons-photosmith/422511161133793  Make sure you pop back over to the note afterwards to let me know you shared and to claim your entry.  You can get yourself as many as FIVE entries by simply sharing in a variety of places in a variety of ways.

The give-away is open to both new fans and past clients.  So hop on over to my FB fan page at http://www.facebook.com/tdfoto and start sharing your way to a free session!

And the winner is…

Well, before I announce which of my wonderful Facebook fans is the winner of the free “It’s all you” shoot…  I’m going to share a little about my day.  🙂  Which was lovely btw.

I did a photo shoot in the early afternoon with Reche and her family.  They were absolutely delightful – such sweet little girls.  Her youngest is out to conquer the world, and will do it too I bet!

Then I picked up the husband from work, picked up the kid from school, hit the co-op for some picnic supplies (gotta have strawberry salad and watermelon), packed up a yummy fresh supper into our picnic bag…  and off we went to one of my favourite little hidden spots down by the river.  Most of the sandbars are overrun with people, but I know a couple slightly more out of the way spots, and we were all alone.

We did see our first tick of the year, nasty little things make me cringe and even thinking about it has me all itchy…  LOL  But it was all good.  The girl played in the sand, she and her Daddy threw and skipped rocks.  And we all very much enjoyed our first picnic of the year.  Silly me, I didn’t think to bring my telephoto lens along – but I’ll remember next time.  😉

After supper we stopped on over to my Auntie Risa’s new place.  It was nice visiting with her and my cousins.  And we even were treated to a little fried chicken and tea.

So yep.  A very nice day.

Okay…  so ya’ll are wanting to know who gets the free photo shoot, right?  Who gets to be spoiled and be the star?  Well, our lucky number is 141 (so instead of counting up from 1, I counted backwards from 158).

random.org picked facebook fan number 141

So Facebook fan number 141 is…..

Shania Duquette!

You’ve won a free “It’s All You” session.  Drop me a line at photographer at tobi-dawne dot com, send me a FB message, or fill out the booking form at http://photography.tobi-dawne.com/ and we’ll get our shoot on!  Congratulations.  😀

If you aren’t a fan of TD Photography, Saskatoon’s Photosmith on FB yet I’d get on it!  This won’t be the last time we do a give-away.  Something tells me there are more freebies coming!

Scraptastic Saturdays – Choose a Swatch!

In honor of Sugar Pie Scraps Designaversary (coming up mid-month), Crystal is hosting a “choose the colours” contest on her blog.  All you have to do is hop on over there, and pick the swatch you like best.  To thank you for voting, she’ll give you a discount coupon for the kit she’ll create using the winning colour palate.  And even better?  One lucky person will receive the kit for free.  She’s got some lovely swatches posted, so it’s not an easy choice…  but hey!  Everyone loves a chance at free stuff.  😀  So get on over there!

Scraptastic Saturday – Yay Literacy

Welcome to the very first Scraptastic Saturday.  So, yeah…  making Saturdays all about scrapbooking kinda takes away from the idea of this as a Project 365 blog.  LOL  But I need a change of pace.  So I figure a once a week break from the norm might not be a bad thing.  🙂

Sugar Pie Scraps has provided gift certificates for the winners of our very first Scraptastic Challenge.  So a big thank you to Crystal for her generosity.  It’s very much appreciated.  Winners will receive gift certificates for her shop at ESS @ http://www.enchantedstudioscraps.com/xcart/manufacturers.php?manufacturerid=90.  And please feel welcome to stop by and visit her blog @ http://sugarpiescrapping.blogspot.com/.

If you’re a designer and are interested in sponsoring a future challenge let me know, we’d be happy to have you.  🙂

With International Literacy Day having occurred this week (September 8th), with my being an avid supporter of the written word as both a reader AND writer, and with Sugar Pie Scraps having launched her new library themed scrapbook kit yesterday (September  10th)…  I figure it’s the perfect time for a themed challenge.  That said, your challenge is a literary themed “WordArt” challenge.

Create a layout (digital or paper) using one of the WordArt graphics I have made available at the links below.  Or, if you would prefer not to use the word art,  include either quote in your layout as part of your journaling.  But preference will be given to layouts featuring the actual WordArt.

Quote One:

“A truly great library contains something in it to offend everyone.”

Download WordArt here – http://www.mediafire.com/imageview.php?quickkey=6v5bim2drdw0fef&thumb=4

Quote Two:

“A book is like a garden carried in the pocket.”

Dowload WordArt here – http://www.mediafire.com/imageview.php?quickkey=e56qbb8cj71f2dh&thumb=4

You have until midnight cst on Saturday (one week from today) to submit your layouts.  Feel free to upload anywhere:  FB, ESS, photobucket, DST, brownie scraps.  Include a link to this post in your layout description, and credit the WordArt as “a Scraptastic design by Tobi-Dawne”.  Then post a link to your layout in the comments section below.   Winners will be chosen and posted here no later than the Tuesday following (but I will do my best to post them sooner).

Good luck, and happy scrappin’!  I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
