This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Astrobrights Papers by Neenah Paper for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

When you want to make something that stands out, whether it is a flyer, a sign, an invitation or perhaps a note for your family, you need to put it on something that really pops. AstroBrights Papers come in 26 bold and eye catching colors which ensures that your creation will never go unnoticed. Your projects aren't limited to mere paper with AstroBrights, there are also envelopes, cardstocks, posterboards, and easel boards, so the only limit is your imagination! How about origami? The gallery of Astrobrights on Facebook is full of fun ideas that transcend the flat dimensions of a flyer or invitation. 

This year AstroBrights is sponsoring the "Give a Brighter Year" sweepstakes on Facebook. Each entry gives you a chance to win $30,000 for your favorite K-8 school and a $500 gift card for yourself! Winning is as simple as filling in your name, address, and other contact information. For a second entry, there are four short questions about your uses and preferences when it comes to colored papers. Easy enough for such a generous prize!

Need an activity idea for your family? AstroBrights has a variety of design challenges in the "Make Something Astrobright" contests on  Astrobrights on Facebook. The current challenge is "Get Colorful" which invites us to create fauna using AstroBrights paper. To enter you simply upload a photo of your creation from your computer or personal facebook page.

BOGO plus 15% off for rewards members at Famous Footwear.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


Shoes were on my mind today. Small shoes. As I prepare for my little one to go back to preschool, I was sorting through his stuff and making a mental list of everything we needed. Shoes topped the list as he had a massive growth spurt this summer and only has sandals that fit him currently. I was absolutely delighted to come to my computer a few moments later and find an email about Famous Footwear's current sale.

By printing theBOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon, I will be able to not only pick up a pair or two that my son needs, but likely I will find shoes for the entire family. The coupon is good from 8/2-8/18, so there is still plenty of time to get in and get your back to school shoes before it expires and school starts here. 

Last time I was in Famous Footwear, I was very happy to find the setup was easy for shopping, sizes were clearly marked, the aisles were wide enough for our stroller, and the sales people were not only helpful but one of the girl's stood and entertained my wiggling toddler while I tried on a pair for myself.

There were a myriad of styles and brand names, so it should be simple for a family to find shoes for everyone from their toddler to fussy teens. If you want a shoe that is not in the store, it can be ordered from the Famous Footwear Website and shipped to your local store for free!

Best of all, Famous Footwear offers a free Rewards Program, signing up with this offer scores you an additional 5% off. That's BOGO plus 20% off! That should create some space in your back to school budget! The rewards program offers 1 point per $1 spent in-store or online and you can accumulate points to earn certificates for up to $100 a year. There are also special members only discounts and perks throughout the year. 

With savings like these, it would be silly for the frugally conscious family to pass up Famous Footwear for their back to school shopping!
