There is a contest, for you!

Hello!
This is my 100th post! Starting the blog in January, I did not think I would get to my 100th post. I figured Always with Butter would be like most other things I start, get really into it for about a week then just loose interest. But nope! it stuck! I love this little blog, it has changed my whole life. I would never have the job at the bakery without this blog, I would have never shot for Williams-Sonoma, I would never know how to bake as many things as I do now if it weren't for being compelled to make a new post.

And now a contest for you! As you all should know, I've made a print shop, The Figgy. So as a thank you to all you followers, those who comment, or just read and make the recipes, one lucky person will get a free print!

The Chocolate Blackberry Cake print to be exact, one of my favorite photos. 8"x12" print - 6"x10" image.

How to enter:
-Just leave a comment and remember to include your email address, so if you win I'll have a way to contact you.
Only for US or Canada residents only.
-Will pick on Monday, 8th of August, so hurry up! You only have one week to leave a comment!!!

There is only one requirement if you win, you have to email me a photo of yourself with the print! :)
