Contest: Shutterfly Celebrates Spring!

by Lain Ehmann on April 14, 2011

Spring is a time for new beginnings, and I’ve

got some changes to announce!
No, we don’t

have a new baby on the way, though we did babysit this cutie and her (his?) three brothers (sisters?) the other day:

We don’t have any weddings (thank goodness).

No big graduations.

So that leaves… (you got it!)…MOVING.

Yes, we are moving. Again.

It’s the third time in two years. Thank goodness, it’s only a mile away. And this time we are BUYING the house so we won’t have to move again any time soon (knock on wood). Stress will abound, you can be sure… but one thing that will make it easier is these cute moving¬†announcements from Shutterfly. I will definitely be ordering some (NOT making my own, thankyouverymuch. I’m a scrapbooker, not a masochist).

AND if that’s not enough, we just might have a housewarming party, for which we’ll use these save the date (though that would mean I’d have to send out save the date cards AND invitations, and I’m not sure I’m that organized).

Want to win some graduation announcements, birth announcements, or save the date cards of your own? Just leave a comment telling me what event YOU are celebrating this spring. For an extra entry, “like” the Layout A Day Facebook page! Contest closes Sunday, April 17, at midnight-ish.

  • Lynnette

    not really celebrating anything…maybe that’s reason enough to throw a spring fling! Good luck with your move and settling into your new home.

  • Abbie Miller

    you are NOT moving again? you poor thing! but congratulations, too. gosh, and i thought we moved a lot… as for celebrations? we are celebrating SIX birthdays in may plus mother’s day, joy, happiness, success and prosperity. i feel like i should say something about the force or something, too. haha! but really, we are just doing great and so happy about it!

    This spring I’ll be celebrating one year cancer free. Life is good.
    Best of luck with your move and the new home!

  • Tambur

    How exciting! your own home. I think that is a reason to celebrate.
    Moving is never, NEVER, fun, but the idea of it being your own sure makes it a less grueling task. I know that when we get ready for a move I always stay awake at night decorating in my head. We have a home that we have managed to live in for a total of 3 3/4 years and not all consecutive. We bought a house with good bones – we redid the kitchen and added wood floors before our last move….came home and gutted the upstairs bathrooms – think hotel chic – and then moved again. Someday……
    Happy for you.

    We are celebrating a 6th grade graduation from elementary school and a Kindergarten graduation (kids go to Kinder from 3-6 years old). They are both in late June so spring is pushing it, but close enough!

  • JoanieBaloney

    Good luck with the move!
    I really can’t think of anything that we are celebrating this spring. The thing that I’ll be happy about most is when we can finally park both cars in the garage, signaling that we will be completely moved into our new home. Guess we can call it a garage warming party!

  • lisa
