Thanks and Giving and Shopping Too

Thanksgiving is my most favorite holiday of the year! I love food, I love to cook, I love my family so it is no wonder right, the perfect holiday for me. Now Black Friday on the other hand, I have only ever gone out once and it was at 11:00 am to a craft store and I VOWED NEVER AGAIN, it was INSANE!!! We are talking full blown cat fights over some scrapbook something or other. No, for me I am an online, digital girl and did you know there are some awesome deals online on Black Friday too? So in the spirit of Thanksgiving and to save you all bodily harm I have the privilege to host what I think is an AWESOME giveaway!!

(seriously, My Memories ROCKS my socks!)
How cute is this? I made it today in about 15 min., and I am not kidding!

this one took even less time because this awesome program
has already built pages and you just add to them.
I have never been a big scrapbooker,
1) I have 4 kids (the youngest would be WAAAYYY too much help
2) I don't have the space or the $$ for all those cute cute cute teeny tiny embellishments
3) If I can't finish the project during nap time it gets added to my pile of projects
4) I am a bit of a perfectionist and can't stand "mess ups"
but I just might, finally, get it together and turn my family blog into a book using this program
You can add pictures, and journaling, embellishments, and there is NO cutting, gluing, measuring and clean up is a it and close it

Christmas Cards anyone?! I LOVE making Christmas cards and my possibilities just became virtually endless! Not only can you use the scrapbook kits with this cool program, but you can also use them with Photoshop, or my favorite Paint Shop.
I also bought a kit that I am so excited to make a flannel board nativity cute!

so are you ready for this giveaway yet? My Memories-digital scrapbook software is giving away the software for FREE to one lucky lucky ducky, and it could be you. Here is how you can enter...
1) Follow this blog (leave a comment that you have)
2) Go to and check out their kits and find your favorite one. Come back here and leave a comment telling me which one it favorites would have to be both of my Christmas Kits (the first one is called Reason For the Season and the last one is called All I Want For Christmas)
3) Share this post with all your friends on all your networking sites-facebook, twitter, blogs (leave a separate comment for each site you share it on with a link if possible)
4) Like MyMemories on Facebook which will automatically enter you into their giveaway of an iPad once they reach 10,000 followers so share them with your friends as well or MyMemories on Twitter (leave a separate comment here once you have)
5) BLACK FRIDAY (11/25) the first 5 people to leave a comment stating what awesome deal they got, or how late they slept in while the other crazies were out shopping will automatically get 3 extra entries.

So what exactly am I giving away?! It is called My Memories Suite and it is a digital scrapbook software/program that you download and start using. It comes with some basic papers, elements, fonts, but you can also download more "kits" they have a ton of free ones, and some super amazing kits that cost a little. I was a little skeptical at first because I have always just done my scrap pages with Paint Shop, but after one afternoon of playing around with it, I am in love! So easy to make a page or ten!

Alright so there you have it, this is a giveaway I am excited to get someone else addicted to-I foresee some late night parties in person or online! (I will help you learn the software if you need it, but it is dang easy!)

Entries will be taken until Midnight, Sunday 11/27/11 Winner will be announced sometime Cyber Monday!

Sweetness | Southern Idaho Family Photographer

this little family was so much fun to hang out with, even if it was freezing COLD!

Every mom of an almost 2 year old needs a family picture like this one...very easily could be my favorite picture of the whole day!

Spunky Kid | Idaho Child Photographer

Oh my, seriousness!
This kid had me laughing the entire session.
He has the cutest personality and spunk!
I had a hard time picking just a few of my favorites for this post, I could have posted them all!!

He insisted on having his picture taken on top of the garbage can, I LOVE it!
