Win this LENS for your SLR!

-Maurianne Dunn, Associate Editor, at Creating Keepsakes posted this giveaway!

  • I’d like to tell you a little more about the Tamron lens (AF18-270mm VC) Brian Tippetts featured in “Brian’s Top 5” this month (page 122). It’s the world’s first 15X zoom lens, and it’s a great all-in-one lens if you’re looking for the perfect complement to your DSLR camera (for Canon and Nikon DSLR cameras). It also features Vibration Compensation, which is an anti-shake mechanism. This allows you to take blur-free photos up to 4 stops slower than usual. Just think of the shots you can get from sunrise to sunset!

  • Here’s the most exciting part: Tamron is giving away one of these lenses (valued at $629) to a lucky CK reader! If you’d like a chance to win, simply leave a comment on this post with what you loved about the September issue of CK or how you would find the Tamron lens useful in your photography. Check the “giveaways” tab at the top of the blog on Friday, August 28 to see if you’re the winner!

Storybook Tea House


Are you a princess at heart?  I have found the most wonderful place to let the inner princess out.  Yes, I know she is still in me... I love to dress up, imagine that I live in a castle... what girl doesn't!

Check out the Storybook Tea House in Manette, WA.  If ever there was an enchanted place to imagine this is it.  The Tea House has the feeling of once upon a time.  Every little girl I know wants to be a princess!
