Please Enter My Fabulous Giveaway!

Hi Everyone:

I am having a giveaway! But, first I want to show you what I just won! I am SOOO lucky--I just won this gorgeous apron from Connie at Living Beautifully--Yes!

I was the winner of her generous giveaway--THANK YOU, Connie! This apron is precious and it will always remind me of YOU. It is such a treasure.

And I have a BRAND-NEW GIVEAWAY to announce!

See these digital pieces I just made?

(Little girl images by Dezinaworld. All other embellishments and background by My Memories.)

They were created with an AMAZING software program from My Memories!!! And, it was a gift to me from the company. I almost fainted!! But, I couldn’t because I had these pages to create so that I could show them to you.

So, what is my giveaway? It is a software program just like this! Next Friday, I will announce the name of ONE winner--and it could be YOU! What do you need to do to enter the giveaway?

(Seed packet graphics from The Graphics Fairy and background and embellishments from My Memories.)


Just go to My Memories , take a look, then leave me the name of the scrapbooking set you like on this post.

Become a follower on this blog--Easy, peasy!

I think these sheets make a great way to show off Etsy treasures.

If you have ever been looking for a software program that is SIMPLE and allows you to do so much, you can also purchase this program.

It comes with OODLES of backgrounds, special embellishments (like rick-rack and flowers) and so much more built right in. This is purely PLAYING for grown-ups!

If you want to buy the software program, My Memories Suite V2, just put in the Promo Code STMMMS19107 to get a $10 discount! How great is that? I will keep the button on my sidebar with the special code in case you want to get it at a later time.

Good luck to everyone!!! But, one more thing--Holly at The Treasure Within is also having a BEAUTIFUL giveaway that starts this weekend--so after you enter mine, just click on the name of her blog and go enter hers too!!! How awesome is that? You could win this gorgeous ring!!

Also, if you would like to spread the word about either of these giveaways, that would be awesome!



THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!!!! The winner will be announced on Sunday October 16, 2011!!!

P.S. Remember in my seminar I said not to leave a super-long post? Well, in this case, I couldn't help it because I had 3 important things to tell you about! Plus, I wanted to show you some concrete examples of what this software could do and some of the awesome backgrounds and embellishments that come with it--ALL included!

Linking this to Pink Saturday!

Linking this to Brag Monday!

Hi Cindy,
Already a lucky follower of your wonderful blog.
You make is all so hard to pick on and so I have had to pick several.
I would have to say that Christmas Traditions is a delight, but then there's Walk in Splender, wow!
Then, (I told you it would be a hard choice) there's Beauty Blossoms Cluster......
Of course the world of digital is a scary place to me, but what the heck, you might as well jump in with both feet, right? HA.
Please enter me Cindy, I am keeping my fingers crossed.
Congratulations on the win from Connie, she is very talented and a very nice person too. Love her,
