My Memories - Freebie Fridays!

Yeah, I know it is Saturday, but truly, we were out of town and I just could not find the time to really do justice to this post.

My good friends at My Memories have started  Share the Freebies and this allows me to share with you selected freebies once a week! Yes, they do post free kits regularly, and they have Fan Fridays on their Facebook page too, and now Share the Freebies. These freebies are designed to work as two-page-spread Quick Pages. And I have a beautiful one to share with you today. As you can see - it is two pages with the same theme that will allow you to do a beautiful two page spread.

 This is what I did with it. I had pictures from my retirement party and from the party we had when my friend/co-worker Jolanta left the library where we both worked.The only things I added to the pages were the word art titles and the photo captions. The word art looks a lot like the gold element and I did that using the bevel feature in the word art wizard. The photo captions was part of this week's Text Wrap Challenge. Make sure you click on the images to see the captioning. I think it was a work of art - fitting for these wonderful quick pages.

Aren't these sweet?  You can get these free pages here.  Don't yet have MyMemories? Use my code on the sidebar and save $10.

Be sure to watch for these freebies every Friday!

My Memories Suite V2 Tutorials - Wednesday Challenge

I have been having lots of fun with MyMemories Suite version 2. In fact today I watched a tutorial on word wrapping text for a different look for journaling. Especially if you want the picture to say it all!  Here is my example with my journaling following the frame. Click on the image to view it full size. Don't forget to use your browser's back button to return here.

It's just a simple little page, but it was fun to learn a new skill and to design the page myself. This is such a sweet program.

The nice people at My Memories gave me a code for my followers to use to order the program and save $10.  To me saving this $10 is so much more, especially when you start exploring the free kits, papers, embellishments and quick pages you can download.

Follow the link here and be sure to use my code to get your $10 off!
