Ta Da - the GIVE-AWAY!!!!!!!

Hi faithful followers (and all other interested parties),

I have been looking forward to writing up this post ever since I received an e-mail back on November the 9th, offering me this opportunity!

Being a 'reader of my blog(I hope); you'll have noticed that I use photos in almost every single post, it grabs attention and the aim is to encourage people (like you) to keep reading! I am also a photo-nut; you can ask my family and friends (I had 30 albums FULL of photos before I even met my husband and before digital cameras; now I have literally thousands of photos all dated and named on my computer as well, just waiting to be put into albums - I LOVE photos)! **

So when I got an e-mail from Liz at mymemories.com offering me two free copies of their Digital Scrapbooking Software; one to keep and review and one to offer as a give-away on my blog... I certainly wasn't going to say no! I did my homework to make sure they were legit first, and that what they were saying was accurate and discovered - much to my delight; it was all true. You only need to google it:

Liz told me: We have an award winning digital scrapbook software that is extremely easy and fun to use. My Memories Suite is rated #1 by Amazon and TopTen Reviews. Using this software, anyone can create digital scrapbooks, photobooks, cards, calendars and gifts without having to buy expensive and complicated software programs.

I have since downloaded my copy of it, totally for free (worth USA$40) and have now got a copy to pass on to one of you lucky people!

** Now I have no excuse but to start sorting albums out and making them beautiful through scrapping... perfect timing also, as when Baby 2 arrives any spare time I have now will be gone!

BUT - that's not all... everyone of you, even if you do not win the give-away are able to purchase this software with a 25% discount ($10 off the purchase price) by using my 'Share The Memory' code - STMMMS78670; and once you have registered, you will also be given a $10 voucher to use on any other item you purchase at their store online! So everyone gets $20(USA) value should they chose to purchase this Digital Scrapbooking Software through my blog - SO EXCITING! This offer and the code does not expire, AND you can pass it onto anyone you know who may be interested as well... the more the merrier I say!!!!

So without further ado - here are the rules:

1) You need to be a follower (or at least a regular reader) of mine... if you don't follow me publicly, but have been reading my work regularly anyway - please let me know in your comment (otherwise I won't include you, and that would be sad).


* Edit - if you are here due to an e-mail I have sent out to invite you to enter this give-away; there is no need to 'follow' my blog... but you will need to follow the other two rules!


If you have encouraged someone else to sign up here and enter my give-away - please let me know, and I'll make sure your name goes into the draw a 2nd time (or a 3rd time... 4th time - anyway, you get the point)!!! So get out there and encourage others to also pop in and sign up for this give-away; more chances for you then!!!!!

2) You need to have an e-mail attached to your profile, or in the comment so I can contact you should you win... if you'd rather not make these details public, you can send me a personal e-mail by going into my 'Contact Me' TAB and using the e-mail address offered there - see I am making it REALLY easy (again - no e-mail, no win; very sad)

3) You need to go and visit the mymemories.com website and tell me what you would purchase first up if you already had the software (for example: a digital paper pack or a lay-out design).

Unfortunately I don't have anything to share with you yet - I HAVE started my first album, but it is not complete. But keep checking in as within the next fortnight (two weeks for those outside of New Zealand) I will be writing up my review and also sharing some of the amazing creations I am looking forward to finishing! I have got SO many idea's but so little time... ahhhh, story of my life *grin*!

NB: This Give-Away is open for all... any country, anywhere!

SO; the all-important closing date for this give-away is:

Sunday 27th November 2011 (this gives you TWO weekends to look through their website and drool before NEEDING coming back here and entering the give-away)!

I will be drawing the winner at 8pm New Zealand time on that Sunday 27th November 2011; and will make contact with the winner via e-mail that evening (and I will also announce it on my blog...)!

Now I have to decide how I am going to draw a winner randomly... do I put all names in a hat and get my husband to pull a name out; do I go all techie and find a website that will do it for me - decisions, but be assured everything will be in place and well sorted before then :-)! So, be keeping an eye on my blog and your inbox the evening of November 27th!!!!!!!

Wow! Great giveaway! I'm like you with pictures...I have SO many! I'd never heard of this software but it looks great! I think I'd pick the Apple Orchard papers from their website.

My email is: mwenger80@yahoo.com

(I'm not subscribed to your blog but I do read it when you post the links on facebook)

This software looks really cool!
Sadly I will give it a miss (at least this year at any rate) - combination of lack of time and lack of any $$ to do it.

But I'm wondering how it works in conjunction with a blog? Like, can you do a page and then post that on your blog instead of a photo? 'Cos that could be quite fun and provide different angles for my blog pictures.

I like the "Modern Christmas Quick Page" - would make a nice easy Christmas greeting, love the blues and sparkles!

Hope the draw goes really well, Elizabeth and I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the programme yourself!

Love Amy
