Elephoto ($50 gift card giveaway)

We take a lot of pictures.  So many that Ashlyn hears the click and says “cheese” without bothering to look up from her craft or snack, and Rowan makes a mad army-crawl towards the camera as soon as she sees it!  I love having all of these memories documented, but our shelves are getting overrun with photo albums and it’s expensive to print individual pictures.  I recently learned about Elephoto, a company that produces high-quality photo books and other photo-related items and is 100%  Canadian!
