Review and giveaway

Welcome to the Sweet Summer giveaway Hop

I went more of the non-traditional way.  I'm not giving away a tasty treat, but I'm giving away a prize that is sure to have anyone say "AWW!!  Isn't that sweet!" 
The requirement of the giveaway was to giveaway something that makes your summer sweet and giving my little guys something that they love is always sweet :)
I hope you enjoy my giveaway as much as I've enjoyed putting it together!

This post is part of my Back-To-School guide!  If you wish to learn more please click the photo below: Review and giveaway

I recently had the chance to review for!  They are a super cute store that personalizes every day items such as cards, calendars, invites, note cards, note pads and so much more.

You actually design them yourself with beloved photos and words.  Making them your own one of kind product.
I was able to review 10 personalized notebooks.

 The process of personalizing my own notebooks was so easy.  I simply chose a design, since I was able to review 10 I choose 3 designs.  I wanted to show you that you could honestly make the perfect personalized item for anyone in your family.

First I choose a notebook with my family name and photo on.  This will be perfect for letter writing!  I have family who sadly doesn't live near me and now my letters will have that extra personal touch since the heading of each will be a photo of my family.

The 2nd design was for myself it was the scroll notebook.  This is going to be perfect for writing lists and reminder notes to myself.  It has my name at the top.  I have had notebook before and they always seem to go missing....  Now this one will be kind of hard to take since it has my name on it :)

Last, but not least I chose the crayon design for my boys.  I got them each their own set with their names at the top.  This is perfect not only to use at school, but also for me to send notes into the teacher.
Had I known which teacher my boys had I would have gotten them this notebook as a gift!  It would be adorable to place their name at the top and let your little one give it as a Back-To-School gift.

The design I choose are only 3 of many!  There is something for everyone and I could think of so many occasions where these would make the perfect gift.  Oh and did I mention I upgraded all my notebooks to have a magnetic feature now I can place them on my fridge and always know where they are :).

The fact the site was easy to use was a huge added bonus!  During the day my kids are always on the go.  I'm writing this review at 9pm on a Sunday night and that is only because my hubby agreed to entertain them for a few minutes.  
I don't have time to spends hours on a site trying to figure out what to do.  I like that is easy to navigate with its tabs and menus.  

The notebooks are only 1 of the amazing items offered at CrickledNose.  I have ordered their personalize calendars in the past and have also directed my sister in law to their site to order her birth announcements.  Both came out just as beautiful as the notebooks.
