Digital Scrapbook Software & GIVEAWAY

I have been so excited to share with you this new software program.  My Memories Suite is a fantastic digital scrapbooking software which offers so much more than just scrapbooking! With My Memories Suite you can make scrapbook layouts, photo books, cards, videos, anything you can dream up! Then, you can either print right from your home computer, send to the professionals, or turn it into a JPEG. I personally think this scrapbook software is awesome and so much fun! I’ve always enjoyed making photo books and online scrapbooks, but they got to be so pricey and time consuming.  With My Memories Suite it was so easy from the beginning and there are so many different options, I think you’d love it! Take a look at my flyer I created.
It was so simple to use, and it offers a wide variety of options. There are tons of layouts on their site and many that come with the program. I was pleasantly surprised with how very easy it was to create your own scrapbook pages, photo book, or a flyer all from your own computer!

Now the good part!
My Memories Suite wants to give away their Scrapbook software to one of our readers!

How to enter: Go to and pick out your favorite layout or digital paper back then come back and comment telling me which one by saying “LET'S GET SCRAPBOOKIN' WITH…
Extra entries: you can follow their Twitter, Facebook, or go tell your friends about this contest! You’ll earn an extra entry for each. Comment telling me you did so.
Contest ends on Friday, September 16, 2011 at midnight CST
And yes, I really am hosting a Willow House party. I'd love for you to come!! :)

Football and a Wedding

Today I'm stuck in a beautiful hotel room watching football all by my lonesome, but it's worth it! I get to attend the wedding of some dear friends, Blair and Alyson. Stephen is one of their groomsmen, and so he's off doing groomsmen duties. I get to relax, crochet a little, and catch up on my reading all while watching the Auburn Tigers. Oh, and you may not know this, but I am now a graduate student of Auburn. So I can officially say Warrrrrrrrr Eagle, Hey!!

Best wishes, Blair and Alyson!

Celebrity Sighting

A few weekends ago, Stephen and I turned down a weekend at the lake to go see these guys.

If you don't know who these guys are, you should be ashamed of yourself. It's Troy and Jacob Landry from Swamp People.  Swamp People is a documentary- reality style show on the History Channel about their life style of gator hunting. It's fantastic. It's safe to say that it is our favorite show, and Troy is our favorite hunter! So, we knew we had to go.  We stood in line for three and a half hours to get one photograph and an autograph. It made a wonderful memory. I can't believe we did it. We almost gave up a few times, but prospered on! =) I got to speak to him for a second, and he was so sweet! Aww! I just love em!
