Freebie Friday - My Memories Suite - Share the Fun!

The quick pages this week are awesome! The ones I have chosen really didn't need anything except a little text and a picture. I love the color, the texture, simply everything about the pages.  And you can get them free over at My Memories here. Remember, the kits I offer are available for only a short period of time. And don't forget the kits come with all the elements from the quick pages, so you can tweak it if you so desire.

This is what I've done with the pages. I think they make an awesome two page spread, don't you?

My Memories Wednesday Challenge - Why I Am Thankful

Every year, we've been thankful for our family and our health. This year has seen a big change in my health and my DH. You see, this year, I was diagnosed with diabetes and my DH with Parkinson's Disease. He calls it our wake-up call. So yes, we are thankful for that wake-up call. My page "I Am Thankful" says it all.

My Memories Suite, Version 3

You know how you mean to do something, but you have to complete step A & B first before you can do step C? That's how my week is going. On Monday, My Memories released version 3 of the best scrapbooking software ever!  On Monday, I eagerly awaited my upgrade notice. And waited. And waited. Because I am part of a select group of affiliates, it took a little longer. I finally received my cherished email yesterday, signed into my account and downloaded version 3. And started installing.

You know how things go wrong? Well, it looked to be a long install, so DH and I had lunch, did some Christmas shopping, picked up some last minute items at the grocery store. On the way home, I saw a competitor of our cable company and said to my DH "Uh-oh, looks like we're going to have problems with the cable." It always happens. Sure enough, got home to find that the download aborted because the connection was lost. So I clicked on the icon to install and after two hours it failed.

By this time, it was dinner time. We had dinner, I decided I was going to delete the file I downloaded and try again. File downloaded, install commenced and took 6 interminably long hours. I have cable modem, it should not have taken that long. Finally around 1:30 a.m. I opened my program. I. Love. It. It has some great new features and enhancements. The best new feature for me is the calendar one. I am going to delete my old Calendar Creator program, which has become so difficult to use. And I don't need it any more. I can do everything I did in Calendar Creator better in my MMS3 software without having to relearn the program every time I want to use it.

This page was created with MMS3 at 2 am. I wanted to get an idea of working with some of the new features and figured I should do a page for my DH's book. Shhh! It's a surprise!

A little birdie told me that on Cyber Monday, there are going to be some great deals in the My Memories Design Shop. Go here to visit the web site. If you don't already have an account with them, you can create one and save the items you want to your wish list.

Remember, if you want to purchase the program, please use my STMMMS code on the right side of the page and save!
