Candid Holiday Cards + a Giveaway!

Everyone has a story when it comes to taking the family holiday card photo. Christmas trees falling, kids crying, wrapping paper everywhere - I've seen it all!

I'm partnering with the Cardstore again to spread the word about an amazing contest and a very special giveaway!

Let's kick it off with the Candid Christmas Card Contest! (ends 12/3/14)

Submit your real life Christmas card outtakes here for a chance to win this amazing prize:

The grand prize winner will receive a $1,500 Visa gift card to put towards a holiday trip, a Nikon CoolPix camera, and free Cardstore Christmas cards to send out to their loved ones this holiday season! They're even giving away prizes for second and third place! Use the hashtag #MyChristmasStory to promote this awesome contest on your social media channels, too!

Here's a glimpse into what it's like snapping pics of our two toddler girls. We were sweating! It included Lola falling, Olivia picking berries off trees, jumping and some bribery with Halloween candy. But...we got it! More to come in the coming weeks. 

But wait! Aside from the contest I have a giveaway for you, too! One lucky reader will win 50 holiday cards of their choosing. Here are some of my favorites:
