500 followers and A Sponsored Give Away!!!

500 followers!
What a humbling number in my little world - and thrilling beyond belief.
AND finally I have a sponsored give away so I don't have to run out shopping and tormenting myself with finding the " right " gifts - AND I don't even have to ship this out - AND it's such a great giveaway -
oh blogging life is getting good lol
So let's get on with the story behind this giveaway..........................

I. AM. NOT. COMPUTER. SAVVY.

I want to make sure everyone understands that - when it comes to technology I'm not the brightest chip on the circuit board - as I've mentioned many times, I struggled with every single step of the learning process when I first began blogging -and because I don't want to keep going on about how stupid I am every 3 or 4 posts I'm just going to leave it at that ( I'm only stupid with computers - I'm like the female Einstein with absolutely everything else lol - just take my word on that one, no tests please )

So when My Memories Suite contacted me to ask if I would like to host a give away for their product - I actually giggled to myself - thinking " these people have no idea who they're talking to here "
When they assured me that it was easy - ( like everyone told me blogging was ) I giggled to myself again.
So it was with a little trepidation that I went to visit their site and guess what?  I was hooked from the get go - really - I played for hours on it ( warning: quite addictive for us creative types ) AND IT WAS EASY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And you gotta believe me everyone - when I say it was easy, I don't say that lightly!!!

There are different packages available - I picked the wedding package ( because as you know one of my daughters is getting married next summer )

Care to see what this computer wiz I created?



and then I did this


ME - I DID IT - SUZAN'S CREATION!!!!

and I couldn't wait for Lindsay to come over and see it -

Mom says - I can't wait to show you what I made for you Lindsay
Lindsay says - oh, that's nice I guess
Mom says - crestfallen - Oh, you're not crazy about it?
Lindsay says - It's not really my style Mom
Lindsay says - Can I play with it for a bit?
Mom says - But of course you can sweetheart - it's all yours
Mom says - But please try to keep it normal
Lindsay says - You spelled my name wrong
Mom says - No - I did not - that is what I named you - that's what on your birth certificate
Lindsay says - I've been spelling it LINZ for 20 years - you have to accept it
Mom says - No - I don't have to accept that at all
Lindsay says - and btw - we're getting married on the 23th of June - just for your information
Mom says - Why are you always hammering me with details???????????????

Here's LINDSAY's creations



Mom says - I think I like mine better
Lindsay says - sarcastically - I'll keep that in mind
Mom says - Don't you want it to be elegant and sophisticated?
Lindsay says - No, not at all actually - that's what YOU want
Lindsay says - If you fight me on this I swear Mom - I'll use this photo


Mom says - Actually I really like the 2 elephants -

Dear God - this child of mine is going to kill me before the wedding even takes place.....................

ANYWAYS.................................

She played on the site for as long as I did and LOVED it - she can do her save the dates, her invitations, candle wraps - place cards - just about anything to do with paper or photos that she wants - it's really a fun fun program.

SO WHO'S UP TO WINNING ONE?
Just go visit My Memories.com and let me know which one you prefer - that's it -
I wish I could give everyone one of these - really - that's how much I loved it - but I can only choose 1 winner ( I'll use random.org again ) BUT if anyone is interested in purchasing one of these you can click on
the banner on the top right hand side of my blog - be sure to copy and paste the code I provide for a 10.00 rebate!
Would love to have you follow me - but it's not a condition :)

Think I'm going to play over there for awhile again,  Stay tuned for another awesome give away on Wednesday!!!
Big Hugs, to everyone of you

  2. Can you hear me laughing through your computer screen? This post is too funny, and I can SO relate to the blogging struggles. Congrats on your daughter's wedding and your impressive number. Wow. I will be old and senile before I get that many followers. Also, it's not that I don't believe you when you say it's easy. It' just that you don't know how bad I am at the techie stuff. LOL.

  3. I hope you guys get your act together because one has the wedding in 2012 (you missed it!) one in 2013, and one in 2014!

    I'd probably go for a travel package if I had to choose just one.

  7. 500 is a wonderful milestone! I follow by email so I won't miss any posts! If you pinky swear this is easy, I might be able to do something with the Photobook Studio. I am very limited in my computer knowledge, but am willing to try something new!
    Thank you for doing the giveaway.
