And the Winner is.....

Well.... I have to say EVERYONE!!! Now before you get toooo excited - I don't mean everyone who entered my "We Honor our Hero" contest.... (Even though there are FIVE of those Winners!!!)

What I mean is that I have decided to give each and everyone of you a 50% off coupon for my "BK's Ultimate Sports Collection" cutter file!!! This collection normally retails for $16.99 and if you purchase this file from Paperthreads on Saturday or Sunday ONLY - and use the coupon code: LM_0908_65990 you will get this file for 50% off!!!!

This collection includes all EIGHT of my sports files and includes: Golf, Tennis, Volleyball, Football, Baseball, Basketball, Soccer and Hockey files!

So that is a steal of a deal!!!! (Heck it was a steal of a deal at $16.99 if purchased each file separately – this collection would cost you $24!!!)


Now for the "We honor our Hero" Photo Star contest.... remember the terms for entering this contest was that I would choose a winner and that winner would provide me with TEN photos of their "Hero" along with the branch of the military that they server(ed) in. And if the person entering wins - they have agreed to sign a waiver allowing me to post photos of their winning prize on my website as the product examples - or however I see fit to use the photo for marketing purposes.....

Now to let you in on how this went down - and how I tried to be just as fair as I possible could ~ Last night hubby was watching TV and being super lazy - and I asked him if he would help me draw the winner! Of course he replied. So I said - well sit up - to which he replied - "uh, no!"....

So... here we are getting ready to draw the names.... Oh before I forget - I decided to draw ONE name for EACH branch of the military!!! So we have FIVE Winners!!! Whooo Hoooo!!! I put all the names for each branch into the bowl and hubby drew names... (notice how he said he wasn't going to get up and do this - and uh.. he didn't!!! Bahahaha)

And the first Winner - representing the Air Force is:

And our next winner representing the branch true and dear to my heart - the ARMY (HOOAH)is:

The winner representing the Marines:

Our winner representing the Navy:

And our last winner - well - she was the only one who entered representing the Coast Guard:

So there you have it the winners are as follows:

Air Force - Jill

Army - Elizabeth

Marines - Jennifer

Navy - Sue F.

Coast Guard - Maria

Congratulations ladies!!! If you would please send me an email with your ten photos to lori@belovedkeepsakes.com and in return I will send you a wavier to sign - along with a few other things!!!!

And for all those who entered and didn't win! I am so sorry - but I will be sharing the completed photo stars here on my blog - and I will be offering them for sale at the Beloved Keepsakes Shop!
Hope you all have a GREAT weekend! Congratulations to our winners again - and don't forget the 50% off coupon! It is only good TOMORROW and SUNDAY!

Until Next Time!

Calling all Military Wives, Mother, Girlfriends....

I need a favor - and that could possible lead to you getting a free gift!!!!

I am in the process of adding new items to my Beloved Keepsakes Shop and one of the items I will be adding in the next few days/weeks will be custom photo stars. (You may remember these from my redo of my living room back last year!) They make wonderful wall hanging for your home and awesome gifts for family and friends!!!

Well - one of the things I am looking to offer is a 15" custom "We honor our Hero" photo star. This is where I plan to take ten photos of a service member and custom make a 15" photo star with branch specific scrapbooking paper to honor a "her" in your life!

I made one of these for my mother in law for Christmas this past year with my hubby and my BIL photos and of course all our paper was "Army" themed. She loved it - and I have had several people inquire about getting one of their own.....

So this is where all you military related people come in..... I have decided to host a drawing to offer a FREE a 15" Custom "We honor our Hero" photo star to one (or maybe more) of you - my readers!!!! That's right... I said FREE!!!!!

But there is a catch! (Isn't there ALWAYS a catch???).... If you win the 15" Custom "We honor our Hero" photo star -you have to send me ten photos of your military person AND you have to agree to sign a waver letting me use the photos of YOUR finished star on my Beloved Keepsakes website as my example!!! (Or for any marketing that I see fit).

Now - I personally think that is a GREAT deal!!! What about you????

If you are interested - and want to enter the drawing - please leave a comment in my comment section with:

1) Your Name

2) The Military Branch that you would be needing (Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines or Coast Guard)

That's it!!! And I announce the WINNER(s) on Friday!!!!

So if you know someone else that might also be interested in winning a photo star - please send them on over as well.
