Book Giveaway: Photo, Snap, Shot

JUNE 15th is "National Give a Girlfriend a Book Day"
A book is a thoughtful gift, it tells how you are interested in the inner being of your friend. 
Whether it is for inspiration, self improvement, knowledge or a fun escape, giving a book shows you care.

The author has graciously provided 3 copies of Photo Snap Shot by Joanna Campbell Slan for promotional giveaway.
Old money and tradition are the hallmarks of the St. Louis prep school that Kiki Lowenstein's daughter Anya attends. But the elite academy is stamped with scandal when Anya finds the dead body of teacher Sissy Gilchrist in its elegant theatre. Even worse, Anya might have seen the killer.

Pegged as a shameless flirt and a lousy teacher, Sissy would've made everyone's "least popular" scrapbook page. Especially for those who were seeing red over Sissy's mixed-race romance with a colleague. Fearing her daughter is in danger, Kiki sifts through the school community's many shocking secrets to pin down the murderer, while doing all she can to avoid starring in her own memorial album.

Includes scrapbooking tips and a special offer from the sponsors of Spotted Canary!

Please read the directions carefully as I have changed one or two things.

Easy homemade Ice Cream
Ingredients/Materials Needed:
* 1 pint of half and half
* 1/3 cup granulated sugar
* 4 tablespoons of your favorite instant pudding mix (chocolate was used here)
* 10 cups ice
* 1 1/2 cup rock salt (kosher salt or sea salt can be used too)
* 3-pound coffee can, emptied and rinsed
* 1-pound coffee can, emptied and rinsed
* Duct tape
1. In a medium bowl, combine half and half, sugar, and pudding mix with a whisk until thoroughly mixed.
2. Place 1-pound coffee can inside the 3-pound coffee can and pour ice cream mixture into smaller can. Cover the smaller can with it's corresponding lid and seal with duct tape.
3. Surround the smaller can with ice and salt by layering 5 cups of ice with 3/4 cup of salt.
4. Use duct tape to seal the 3-pound can with its corresponding lid and start rolling. Have the kids face each other and roll the can back and forth on its side for 10 minutes.
5. After 10 minutes, open the cans and check the ice cream. Remove the smaller can and check the ice cream. The mixture on the sides of the smaller can will set up faster than the center. Use a rubber spatula to quickly scrape down the sides and give the ice cream one stir.
6. Next, reseal the lid on the smaller can with duct tape, and set it aside. Quickly dump the melted ice water from the large can, and place the smaller can into the larger can again.
7. Now you need to surround the smaller can with remaining ice and salt by repeating step 3. Once that is done, put the lid on the larger can and seal with duct tape again.
8. Ask the kids to roll the large can for 10 minutes more.
9. Once they're done, open the cans again and serve the ice cream to your little helpers!
