A Happy Halloween Give Away!

Today is my youngest grandson's first Halloween!  He and his older brother are dressing up as Super Heroes, along with their Mommy and Daddy.  I always enjoy seeing entire families dressed up in costumes as they accompany their children from house to house for Halloween "trick or treat" .... sometimes even the family dog is in costume!  The snowstorm that hit the North East this weekend had very little effect on where I live in Brooklyn, so I'm expecting a busy afternoon giving out Halloween treats, and I'm also excited to offer a special MY MEMORIES FREE DIGITAL SCRAPBOOK give away treat to all of my readers today!



I was able to make this darling photo scrapbook page of my grandson's recent visit to their local pumpkin patch using the My Memories digital scrapbook software. My Memories Suite is the #1 rated scrapbook software and the best seller at Amazon for a reason. It is affordable and easy to use. When the folks at My Memories offered to let me try out their software I was so excited!  As you can imagine, I have so many digital photos of my grandsons, yet I have not been good as I had hoped at keeping up with having them printed out to make a scrapbooks with them. Now I can easily make digital scrapbook pages, and have them printed out up to 12x12 size at home, or send them out for professional printing.  It's a nice way to use multiple photos on one page as well as journal a story about the photos. The software was easy to install and use. The page above was my first attempt!



Just look at how easy it was to scrap my two little Halloween Super Heroes in a page I made last night! I can even turn my digital scrapbook pages into a movie to watch on a DVD, view on an iPod, or post them as a movie on my facebook page -- all with the click of a button!  I am going to have lots of fun exploring all the options this software has to offer, such as making greeting cards, calendars, posters or trading cards, and bound photo albums.

What a great Halloween giveaway!! But I'm hopeless trying to load and learn things like this, I haven't even been able to learn Picasa or Photoshop yet. Plus I won your last giveaway, so I will pass on this one.

Kah-yute! But you know I am tragic when it comes to making time to create anything. Tragic, I tell ya!

Jeanne said...

Good morning Pat, I am very interested in this program. I have been gathering stuff to do memory books for my children and my grands for Christmas. My biggest problem is I have hundreds of digital photos and it would mean printing them. I am so excited about this program. It was meant to be for me to visit you this morning. Smile. I will use the discount if I don't win. This is a great giveaway. Thanks!!!

Your little G-boys are so darling in the Super Hero costumes. I too love to see the parents and children all dressed up for Halloween. When my children were young I always dressed up to give out candy. Usually a pumpkin costume I made when I was pregnant with the last baby. He arrived Nov. 4th so you can imagine I was the perfect pumpkin. HA!

XO, Jeanne

This is such a fun giveaway - and I know because I won one a few weeks ago. Good luck to all - but in fairness, I'll stay out of the draw and focus on creating with My Memories!

Catherine said...

Pat...Happy Birthday to your youngest Grandson! Exciting giveaway!

Grandmother said...

Great info. I went to the My Memories website and my favorite pack was called "Little Hamlet" to document my travels. Since moving to Italy and traveling around Europe, I've been looking for a way to make it memorable visually. This could be it. Hope I win.

Hi Pat, in keeping with the spirit, I think I like the Halloween template!

You are so blessed with your precious grandchildren. I still have the two granddogs, Pat.

Am busy trying to get to India. The house is almost empty and I think I'll make my scheduled departure out of L.A. on Nov 14, stopping off for two days in Seoul. My six month stay is shortened to five months but I should get to see and do plenty in that time. No give away for me this time but I know it's a wonderful treat.

I'm back for another chance to win the scrapbook deal. I'm not exactly sure where I stumbled upon your blog, but I think it might have been through Mary's Mosaic Monday on Little Red House. I have enjoyed reading about your beautiful and exciting New York City. Thanks for your fun posts.

What a cute scrap book you made of the pumpkin trip. Well done.

Your gkids are adorable! I would only be able to show mine with masks on, due to parental controls, and I am ok with that. :)
We spent Sunday with them, great party at the the club. Fun to see so many little ones in costume.

The boys are adorable Pat!

Buttercup said...

The layouts you've done with the boys' pictures are adorable. This looks like a lot of fun to use. I liked the "Seasons of Life Winter." I think that would be great to use with snow pictures.
