Photobook Submission

Do you guys read Dooce? I know a lot of people don't care about "mommy" blogs (I hate that term), but I think it's one of the funniest and well written blogs I've ever read. Seriously, it's the kind of writing that makes me shake my head in frustration thinking "why can't I do that?" Anyhoo, Dooce is hosting a Canon EOS 7D camera giveaway and I thought I'd post my submission. Since the internet is flooded with far more talented people than I, I've already accepted that there is almost no chance that I'll win. Either way I thought it'd be fun to give it a go.

For the contest you have to make a photobook through Shutterfly in order to enter. I decided to make a cookbook for Holden since I've been talking about it forever. The book only needs to be a few pages so what you see is only the beginning. I also had to condense a lot of things in order to make it work.

Here's my photobook:

I didn't see any other cookbooks but there's already over three hundred submissions. I'd love it if mine was the first one. I had been planning to use blurb for printing my cookbook, but I think I might just finish what I've started and use shutterfly. Anyone have any experience using them?

You can find all the rules and info in case you want to enter as well here. Good luck!
