Welcoming Spring with a Giveaway

Welcoming Spring with a Giveaway

Happy Spring everyone! It seems like everyone has been eagerly awaiting the arrival of Spring; with her gentle way of waking up the earth and promise of new beginnings. I have been more excited than ever with the coming of my e-class Picture Spring at Big Picture Scrapbooking which begins on April 1st.

What is Picture Spring? It’s 30 days of soulful, seasonal celebration. It’s an email from me in your inbox each morning for the whole month of April encouraging you to look at the world around you a little differently. It’s about using your camera as a creative tool to help you translate the magic of your life into images. It’s about chaging your perspective and seeing (and capturing) the beauty that can often be overlooked everyday for 30 days. It will be a perfect way to start a photography practice of both mindful and celebratory creativity! I do hope you decided to join in the fun.

Today to celebrate the first day of Spring and all her splendor, I will be giving away 3 complimentary registrations to Picture Spring. Everyone is eligible to win (and if you win and you’re already enrolled in the class, you can always offer the free registration to a friend, your sister or even your mom).

Leave a comment here to be included in the random drawing for one of the 3 prizes. And if you are enrolled in the class already, or plan to enroll be sure to let me know in your comment…I’m excited to hear from you.

And if you happened to be as excited as I am about Picture Spring (is that even possible?), you can grab a button for your blog and share your enthusiasm with the masses! Just right click on the image to the left and link it back to the Picture Spring class page at Big Picture Scrapbooking. Let everyone know what you’re up to this season!

Please leave your comment by Tuesday (3/ 23) at midnight to be entered in the drawing. Winners will be announced on Thursday (3/25).

    I just got back home from my first trip to Napa, CA. It was beautiful, and spring was in full bloom there. The hillsides were green from rain, the flowers were popping up, and the sky was the brightest, clearest blue you could wish for. Then I came home to CO to be welcomed by a snowstorm. Unbelievable, I thought.
    I love spring, and I think you’re class sounds great. What a way to look around during April to catch the first glimpses of springtime in CO (which often can have lots of snow.) Enjoy spring, wherever you are.

    Great idea! If chosen, I would gift the registration to a photog friend for her inspiration.

    I would love to win this class. I just found you the other day and the funny thing was, one of my goals this year was to learn more about Photography and I turn 50. I hope to take this class.
