As good as free (almost) Freebie!

Hey, I recently found out about this website that lets you make photo books.  Yes, I know there are lots of them around, but this one was new to me.  And, even better, is the fact that for all new customers, through August 31, you can use the code FREEBK to get a free large book, including leather bound, worth $39.99.

I've used several other well known photo sites to put together photo books, and I was impressed with Picaboo's so far.  There seems to be a lot more choices and flexibility.  It did have a slight learning curve, but last night I finished up a wedding album for my niece's wedding that we attended last month.  3-4  business days to process and 3-4 days for shipping (yes, you do pay shipping with the above code, but it was $8.99).

Even though I obviously haven't seen the final products, I thought I'd pass this along to you so you could give it a try for $8.99 yourselves!  Good luck and have fun.  Once you get your books, back, post on here what you think of them.

Oh, yes, it would help if I actually give you the website: !  (the exclamation pint is mine, not part of the URL)

I know, I am a bad girl for staying away for so long

That's why I am hoping you will forgive me because, in a way, I come bearing gifts.  I am so excited.  Corel is running a great promotion now on its photo editing software - see here:  You can save 30% on Paint Shop Pro X3 - the latest version.  Instead of paying $99.99 for it, you pay $69.99 for a full version, or like me, $59.99 for an upgrade.  But, wait, like the Ronco commercials say, there's more - you get a $40.00 Photo Restoration and Retouching book for free, and, if you wish, with any purchase, you can add Corel Paint It! to your order for only $10.00 (normally $39.99).  that's what I did yesterday.    But, they also gave me free shipping (saving me another $9.99 - if you don't get it automatically, sign up for their emails - you may need that link).  The piece de resistance I am giving you, however, is the code I used to get $20.00 off my order  BONUSBUCKS20. 

So, instead of paying almost $200 full price when you add in shipping, I am paying $49.99 total for all of the above.  Hurry, though, the sale, I believe, only runs through August 15.

Have fun!
