Our First Giveaway!

I am beyond excited about this! This is the R Lil Bit of Cash blog's first giveaway! We've officially made it to the big time. :)

I was contacted a few days ago by a company called My Memories. They have an award winning digital scrapbooking software program that is rated #1 by Amazon and Top Ten Reviews. Using this software, you can create digital scrapbooks, photobooks, cards, calendars, and anything else your creative mind can come up with, without having to buy more expensive (and complicated) software programs.

Ummm, hold on... did someone say scrapbooking software? I am a huge scrapbooker!! I have roughly 10 books that I've done over the years, but I always did things the old fashioned way... with paper, scissors, glue, and stickers. I really enjoy going through my papers and choosing what I want to go on my page, but I could easily spend over 4 hours on one page. To say I'm behind is the understatement of the year.

Even if you're not into scrapbooking (what?!), there are some other amazing things you can do with this software. For example, you can use this software to create the most amazing design, including pictures of your horse, save it as a jpg image, and use it as the header for your blog! The library of embellishments, paper, word art, monogrammed letters, and templates make the process super easy, and super fast.

To show you just how cool this software is, I created this page for Lilly.

Please click to enlarge this image... the detail of these embellishments is absolutely amazing!
I had a lot of fun playing around with the photos and page elements and found the software to be really intuitive. Also, anything I wanted to do with my page, I could. All the paper, all the embellishments, everything, is high quality and digital. You can resize, flip, rotate, change, manipulate... and it doesn't pixelate or distort in any way.

Aside from the huge library My Memories Suite already has, they have an even bigger library of kits available for purchase. If you can imagine it, it's there in the store... it's like having your very own scrapbook store, except the best part is that you can use the same paper, same embellishments, and the same page elements over and over again. No more running out of your favorite paper! There are also quick pages that come pre-done and all you have to do is place your pictures in the spaces provided. In like 5 minutes, you have a fabulous page!

I could go on an on about how great this software is, but I want you to have an opportunity to experience it for yourself! My Memories gave me a copy of their software to try for free, and they're giving me another free copy to give away here, hence the whole giveaway contest! So, to enter the contest for a chance to win your very own copy of the My Memories Suite, I would like you to do the following:
  • Think of your favorite memory... one you would love to recreate with photos, paper, and embellishments
  • Visit and browse their huge library of kits and choose the one that best fits your favorite memory
  • Then post in the comments a bit about your favorite memory and which kit you chose to go along with it
Lilly will help decide the winner on December 2nd, so make sure to get your entry in before midnight on December 1st. You can gain a second chance to enter by promoting this blog/contest through your own blogs! Just link your post along with your comment.

And, as if that wasn't enough, My Memories has also given me my very own Share the Memories code that provides a $10 discount off the purchase of the My Memories Suite Scrapbook software and a $10 coupon for the store! Just enter the code STMMMS29874 during checkout. So fear not if you don't win, you can still get this great software at a great price. Feel free to share the code with your family and friends!


  1. I actually won this software from another blog a month or so ago! Ive played with it a little bit, and was having fun. Then the laptop died and we got a new one, so the software was on the other one and now I cant use it. :( Love your page!

  2. Are you sure Miss Lilly approves of the world seeing her grumpy photo? lol

  3. I would definitely scrapbook this last year. It has been full of rich experiences for us! I would use the All Boy kit, as I have ALL boys lol!


  4. Scrapping is not on my list of hobbies, but I really like the style of many of their packs. I think I'd like to try
    Subtlety or Sopistichic to document some of my quieter moments with Junior. I used to focus on show pictures so much, but I've become more interested in remember the little, quiet moments.


  5. : ) Obviously one of my favorite pony memories is fresh on my mind in the holiday season...unwrapping a photoframe christmas morning that had a picture of Mr. Moon and a little text bubble over his head that read "All I want for Christmas is Sand to be my owner". I burst into tears before I even had it out of the box!! The BF always asks me what I would have done if the gift was just a picture and not the actual horse! :P

    I'd choose the 'Time of Wonder Template 1' to capture that memory, and I really should! The line "Christmas Glows with Love" highlights that moment for me perfectly. Love of my life buying me my first pony, a moment I'll never forget. : )
