The Grand Finale! Day Five of the Cheese Party's Giveaway Extravaganza!

The Omega. Here we are at the ends, my friends. And boy is it a biggie. Relatively speaking, of course. I mean, I'm not the Pioneer Woman, though I kind of wish I was. 


ANYWAY!

Getting right down to it, here is part one of today's prize:

See on the bottom left there? That's a brand new digital camera! Now don't get too excited. I got this camera for free from Macy's, so I doubt it's anything to write home about. However, it does take pictures, from what I can tell. 

'But Amy Jo', you ask, 'what if those pictures come out all wonky?' Well then you can just use part two of today's prize, AKA your new copy of PhotoShop Elements 6, to fix them up! 

This comes bundled with Premiere Elements 4, so if you are into taking movies you can pretty them up as well.

In the interest of full disclosure I have to add that the box is open on this. Here's what happened: I was so excited when I got this that I sliced through the security seal and popped it into my computer right away. Then disaster struck. Nothing happened. Only then did it occur to me to check the box. Alas, I was dealing with software for pc, but I am a mac user. Insert forehead smacking sound here. Since it's been opened it can't be returned, but it's never been used and it's brand spanking new. 

So, since we're doing it up big for the finale, you have until Monday 1/12 at 12 noon sharp to leave a comment. Do so and all of this could be yours!

OMG! I would have been upset too about buying the wrong program. Hope I win!

I, too, am a Mac, but fortunately for this contest, the rest of my family are PCs!

Who knows, the freebie from Macy's may perform better than my stupid 8 year old Canon.

Just saw your blog for the first time and this looks like fun! Sorry it wasn't for a mac!

Tammy said...

sweetness! Too much fun. I was so excited to win the goody bag, maybe lightning will strike twice! In all fairness though - if I happen to win again (cross fingers), I would just like the camera - I already have PSE 6 and so that could go to a different winner. My daughter's Fuji camera (don't get me started, DON'T buy a fuji camera), broke after just 6 months of use and fuji wouldn't honor the warranty. But that's another story.

wow, a digital camera freebie from Macy's? I've seen some of these freebie cams perform better than high end ones so who knows? I have PC's at home, but got myself a nice macbook laptop for Christmas this year, and love it! Still getting used to it of course...but like what I see. Have a great weekend!

I'm a Mac... no.. I'm a PC... well.. I'm a PC, at work... during the day, but at night I'm all Mac... Kinda like a superhero OOH YEAH!.. unless I have to use Autocad... then I change back to PC... When I'm rendering, I'm actually both... which gets confusing. I picture myself as half cool & half.... whatever PC is. Point is Amy Jo you can be both and use any software by using Parallels which lets you run Windows on a Mac. (This by the way is what I do as a superhero.) Lame huh. OOH YEAH!

I'd totally love to win! I've heard nothing but good things about Photoshop Elements. And I've just started getting into videos more so the Premiere Elements would be totally awesome!
