~ Vacation ~ ahhh ...

Hello fellow scrapbookers ...

I am on vacation and decided to do a quick post.

After a year and a half I FINALLY finished my daughters wedding scrapbooks. I had been hesitating because there were so many pictures from different people to go through and sort out and pick from. Well, after picking out the 'for sure' pictures from different folders then came the job of sorting them together in order. Then of course some pictures needed to be brightened etc. That part is what made me procrastinate and that is what made me take so long. After that is was fun!

To make this album I used 'My Memories Suite 2.0" software which is a great program I've talked about before. It makes everything so easy and it's a really fun program to use. Not only can you make scrapbooks but after you are done you can put the pages on a dvd or even put them on your ipod. You can add music and so much more. They also have fabulous support and a facebook group which gives you ideas and answers any questions you have. My Memories on Facebook.

Thats the other thing I wanted to tell you and I hope you make it here on time is the My Memories has 30% off of their software this weekend!! You can get the program which is regularly $39.97 for only $27.98! AND ... if you use this code:
you will get another $10 off! So only 17.98 for a great program that you will LOVE!!. It's so easy to use for the beginner or has advanced options for the more experienced user.

Go see all My Memories Suite can do HERE.

Anyways I am finally done. What got me motivated was the place I get all of my books printed (Artscow) has a promotion on that ends on the 24th of this month. They have 100 page hard cover photo books on for 59.97 with NO shipping. Awesome deal and I have loved the books I've got from them so far. I ended up making 2 - 100 page books and I can't wait to get them!!

If you would like a sneek peak at the books I made you can see them at Artscow:
*Make sure you fully let them load or they will look blurry. Also don't bother looking at them full screen because it seems to distort them.

Book 1

Book 2

Another big job off my plate

So enjoy the freebie and I hope you get a chance to purchase My Memories Suite. Believe me I never thought I would find a scrapbooking program that I would actually like. I made all my pages before in my graphics program and then got them printed. With My Memories you make you pages and then export them as high quality jpgs and you can take them anywhere to get printed. Or don't even get them printed, just put the pages you've made onto dvd and share them with family and friends.

To celebrate the 'finishing' of my daughters Wedding books I have a special freebie for you:

Download Sweet Love Papers #1

These papers have the word art right on them so they are fancy enough you don't even have to add any embellishments. You can use them for so many occasions.

Have a great weekend. I'm going to see my grandson! YAY!!! lol

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving Weekend~

Whoa ... I honestly didn't realize how long it's been since I've been here. Is my life on fast speed? I never thought I would be one of those 'bad bloggers' but time really does seem to slip away. Summer is just about over and the whole season just seemed to 'whoosh' by.

My grandson turned 8 months the other day!! Holy Moly! He's crawling and stands up and walks (actually runs) with the help of just a finger to hold on to. He said his first word the other day too - Mama ... awwww... so cute! My husband and I had him for a whole weekend a few weeks back and it was great. We had so much fun but I had honestly forgot how much work a baby is ... lol. It gives me a whole new appreciation for motherhood all over again!

I'm not only behind on blogging but believe it or not I'm just starting my daughters wedding scrapbook. There was a million pictures to go through and sort and pick and choose from. I finally got that all sorted out and now I'm just starting. I'm really in love with the scrapbooking software I've been using to do it. If you don't have any scrapbook software I highly recommend
My Memories Suite 2.0
. You can buy it online and it's regular $39.97 but if you use this code: STMMMS29686 you will get $10 off! It's awesome!
