Livonia Spree Giveaway

Thank you for coming to my page to enter the Livonia Spree Giveaway!

My husband, Andy, is on the Spree Committee.  He’s there every day starting the Saturday before until the day after Spree ends.  Since our family so involved, I thought it would be fun to give away a photo shoot in celebration.  Here’s how you enter:

1) Give me your name and email address (to reach you if you win) in the comments section below
2) Tell me your favorite thing about the Spree this year

That’s it!  I will do a random drawing on Tuesday, July 1st and announce the winner.  The winner will receive one complimentary photo shoot with a $50 credit towards prints and products.  The shoot must be redeemed by January 1, 2015.

Thank you for attending the Spree, and for visiting my page.  I hope you have a great time!
