Free Blog/Instagram Frame + A Need For Guest Bloggers + A Place You Should Shop

So not only did I mess up last week's link party by putting the link code in wrong, but I missed it altogether this week.  That is how awesome I am.  Ha!  Sorry guys!  It has been one of those weeks.  We'll get back on track next Tuesday with a brand new Top Ten List writing prompt.

Okay.  On to 3 completely random things.

1. Who wants to be a guest blogger here on the SB blog?  With my girls getting out of school soon, I plan on being totally busy swimming in Lake Michigan, chasing fireflies, and roasting marshmallows with my little family.  It would be awesome to have another blogger or two fill in either once a week or every other week.  Post about whatever you want.  If you are a digital designer, nobody hates awesome freebies.  That would be shabulous!  If you are a DIY person- that is always fun too.  Photographer?  Sure.  Honestly, I don't even care what your blogging claim to fame (or claim to not fame yet, but working on it) is as long as it is something I think our visitors would dig.  Just leave a comment here with a link to your favorite two or three blog posts along with a way to contact you and we'll take a peek and email those we think would be a good fit.  What say you?  Sound cool?

2. I know this is random, but I have three little girls whom I love to dress. Having said that, I try to only buy things when they are on sale.  Having said that, one of our sponsors is having a seeeeriously rad sale.  I don't normally blog about things like that, but I can't help it this time, guys.  Everything is just so cute!!!  If you have ever shopped at My Little Jules, you know what I'm talking squealing about.  They have THE best brands and cutest clothing for girls.  And their sales are such a life-saver!  My Little Jules is currently having a Memorial Day sale with items up to 40% off.  When I get cute pieces for my girls at those prices, I can later take them to my local children's consignment boutique and nearly get back what I paid for them.  Awesome, right?  Anyway, no, I wasn't asked to share any of this.  I just really love MLJ so I wanted to let you in on the sale and the cuteness.  Here is a sneak peek so you can see what I mean:

3.  I'm an Instagramming fool.  True story.  I love using Instagram to capture those on-the-go moments which can later be blogged and elaborated on.  With that in mind, I created this simple four-photo square blog frame.  (I kept it basic so your photos will really pop!)  You don't have to use this frame with Instagram photos though.  Anything you want to share will do!  It's just a fun way to add a little character to your blog photos.  Here is a preview using a few of my IG photos:

And here is the freebie!  Just click on the image below for the full-sized .png file.  Enjoy!

Thanks everyone!
