Are You Ready? For September's QUARTERLY TOP 5

Wow!!  Is it really mid-September?  Yes, which means it is time to begin thinking about and choosing your 5 favorite photos that you've taken of your children (pets included) during the months of July, August, and September.  Co-hosting this linky party with Courtney and Sarah has become one of the highlights of blogging for me each quarter.  I am sure this quarter will yield many photos filled with your children enjoying their summer and back to school days. 

If you are new to the Quarterly Top 5 Photo meme, here are a few details:
  • Go through the photos you've taken during July, August, and September 2011
  • Choose 5 and post them on your blog or flickr account beginning September 28th-October 5th
  • Please only use photos that include your CHILDREN and/or PETS
  • Accompany each photo with a short explanation of why you chose it
  • Link up here at Amber's ArticlesClick It Up A Notch, or NapTime MomTog
  • Put our banner or button in your post.  If the button is not there you will not be eligible to win.
We were able to get some fabulous sponsors for this quarter!!

Shutter Buddy- Grey Owl
Be sure to click over and check out Leora's selection of Shutter Buddies.  My son is 17 months old.  I constantly struggle to get him to look at the camera, but the first day I put my caterpillar shutter buddy around me lens it was like magic (and it has a squeaker).  One of the photos I'll be sharing this quarter was taken while my son was mesmerized by it.  Follow her on Facebook too.

Custom Blurb Book (up to $36.95)
This is such a great way to have your photos or blog posts printed.  Printing my blog is on my too do list and I am planning to use Blurb to make it happen.

Just like last quarter  this is not a contest.  You don't have to have the best photo to be considered for the give away.  It will be a random give away, as we want to encourage people to share their memories and one person will be chosen for each gift.  So start searching those archives and be ready to share your favorites with us beginning September 28th.

One last thing, if you would be so kind to add our button to your side bar to help spread the word we would appreciate it.
