Best Child/Family/Pet Photo
- 1st Place: BlownAway by LettyPlusThree (Long Beach, California)
“I am a single mom of those 3 boys that’s why I named my business BlownAway by lettyplusthree. They are part of my business and why I work so hard I also teach them about compassion and to be kind. They help me pop balloons and dispose of them correctly. We all love balloons, and we love our kids – which is why it is important to share smart balloon practices so they know how to safely use and enjoy them for all their celebrations.” Leticia Diaz, Owner, BlownAway by LettyPlustThree.
