Sunday Snapshot~ Our Oldest and a GiveAway!

our oldest has definitely grown in the last year. heck, in the last 6 months! new shoes at Christmastime were size 10.5 , a half size bigger than his dad. when i called home the other day i couldn't figure out why the hubs was home early and then i realized it wasn't the was my oldest talking in his newly acquired bass voice. This collage spans only the last 3 years; going any further back would've made me cry.

i was finally able to create a photo collage like this (and others below) on my own using digital scrapbooking software. i've seen photos like this on other blogs but could never figure out how they were done. now i know and this week i will be giving away a free copy of My Memories Suite Software (a $39.95 value) to one winner so you can have fun creating wonderful memories with your photos too! it's free to enter and you can submit up to 4 entries. see details below

if you haven't tried digital scrapbooking yet, now's the time to experiment! digital is so simple; just design your pages, print them out and put them in a book! instead of your pictures languishing in your computer picture file (like mine) you can get them into a book or onto a DVD in minutes. i was surprised it was so easy to navigate this digital scrapbooking software especially for a beginner like me, everything is basically drag and drop!

you can create your own designs from scratch using thousands of background papers and embellishments as well as fonts and colors or use one of several templates already designed. you can also put the scrapbook pages you make on My Memories Suite on a DVD and add music and videos! This software can also be used for blog design, photo books and custom cards. Here's what I made this morning!

right now they are offering a $10 discount off the purchase of the My Memories Suite Scrapbook Software, plus another $10 off any products in the My Memories Store- that's $20 in savings! Use code STMMMS97074 (it's okay to use more than once and can be shared)

or, enter to win a copy for free (again, a $39.95 value)! there are four ways to enter, so more chances to win (Please Comment Once For Every Entry So Each One Counts!) I will use to select a winner and it will be announced on January 22.

Give Away has ended! WINNER IS KALA!
