Photoshop CS5 giveaway!



You know we love our readers! You guys inspire us, motivate us and make this blog so much fun! So to thank you we are offering a giveaway!! What you say? Well since it was so popular last time we are giving away another Photoshop CS5!! (that may have been obvious by the picture and the post tittle... but still surprise!!) 

Why Photoshop? Because it is awesome that's why! Ok more reasons:
1. You can edit pictures
2. You can create blog buttons, backgrounds and graphics
3. You can create printables
4. You can create PDF patterns
5. You can use it to create digital scrapbook pages
6. You can make sewing templates
7. You can make stencils
8. You can make your kids their own coloring pages
9. You can create art
10. You can design your own fabric.

Are those reasons enough?
Last time we gave one away we had some awesome guest bloggers share photoshop tutorials... You can check those out HERE

So if you want to check out more about Photoshop CS5 you can check out the Adobe site. (this is NOT a sponsored giveaway)

Let's get down to the good stuff:

How to enter:

All you have to do is:(as in mandatory)
Be a follower/subscriber to Shwin&Shwin.

Simple right? We love our followers, so become one and you could win!
Just leave a comment letting us know you follow/subscribe to us.
Tell us which project/tutorial has been your favorite
and please please please include your email, it would be tragic if we picked your name and couldn't contact you!

Would you like some extra entires? Those are always fun!
(leave a seperate comment for each entry)
1. Follow us on facebook
2. Follow us on twitter (someday we will tweet more than just FB updates :)
3. Blog/tweet/facebook about the giveaway
4. Upload a picture to our flickr group of a project you made from/ inspired by our tutorials/patterns (we love that)


The fine print:
Ok now for the boring part...We love all of our readers near and far so it is open to anyone. We are trying to get the giveaway going as early as possible since the good people at Adobe can sometimes take a long time to ship the program, so the hope is that it will arrive before Christmas but I can't make a promise on that, but that is the goal :) The giveaway will close on Friday November 18th at midnight MST. A winner will be announced (and emailed) Saturday November 19th Good luck!
