travel week: photo opps and freebies

I recall once a travel show advising that you should take pictures of the sights and scenery unique to your destination. This way you capture memories from the trip,

rather a bunch of posed pictures of your family whom you already see all the time.

Posed pictures just don’t tell a story the way candid ones do.

As I look back over the pictures we took last week, the photos of the sites are the ones that take me back to that moment in time.

For instance, I can still hear Roz, in her grouchy, Archie Bunker-esque voice, saying “cheese,” as I took her picture.

Speaking of making memories, if you can name the famous movie scene from this setting, (BIG hint: Julia Roberts)

You will win printable decorative cupcake liners and toppers courtesy of My Memories Scrapbook Software.

You will be able to choose from the black and white theme

or the picnic and summer theme.

The sample photos makes me want to go bake some cupcakes!

If you don’t have My Memories Scrapbook Software, that’s okay.  You can download the free project to your computer, print and have fun!

If you already have My Memories Scrapbook software, you will be able do download the freebies onto your software and customize them with any paper or embellishments you like.

Feel free to copy and paste my codeSTMMMS59605 for a $10 discount if you should  decide to purchase My Memories Scrapbook Software.  Once you purchase the software, you will receive a $10 credit for the My Memories online store.

Until next time,
