Happy Friday (and my first giveaway)!

A week or so ago, I got an email from Picnik that said they're closing in April.  Picnik has been my go-to site for playing with photos and attempting to edit my images since I found the site in high school, so I was fairly disappointed.  How would I then play with my photos, make collages, and add text or effects?

Then I got an email from My Memories, which I'd heard about from a couple of blog and real-life friends, inviting me to try the software myself and host a giveaway.  The software lets me play with layouts, add effects to my photos, and create entire scrapbook pages.  Plenty of extra backgrounds and embellishments are available for free or at little cost online, and it's quite easy to use.  I even put together a new blog header, which I've wanted to do for ages, and made this stand-alone page.

Now someone else gets to try it free!  Here's how to enter:

1. Visit My Memories and look at their products.
2. Leave a comment here about what you would make.  I'm working on a little photo book for a Valentine's Day gift that I'll share next week.  Would you put together a gift, or something different?
3. Share this post on Twitter or Facebook for an extra entry.  Just be sure to leave a link in an additional comment.

The giveaway will be open until Wednesday, February 15, at noon.  If you'd like to try the software before then, you can use the code STMMMS97988 (just copy and paste it) for $10 off the software and a $10 coupon for items in the store.

Good luck!

*UPDATE: I didn't have time to finish the photo book or pick a winner, so I'm keeping it open until Friday at noon!*

Disclaimer, which I failed to post originally: My Memories emailed me and offered a free copy of their software for a contest winner and me.  The opinions in the review are all mine.  Is that all you generally need to know?

I'd use it to scrapbook some of my daughters photos.
