It's Giveaway Time

Ok, well, it's Tuesday morning not Monday. 

Let's just say that the rest of Monday got away from me, so here we are on Tuesday!

Recently I was contacted by My Memories about their digital scrapbooking software.  And, well, if you've spent anytime around here, you know how much I am obsessed in love with pictures and documenting my family's everyday life.  This didn't just start when I had kids, but got increasingly more frequent after I did. I am SO glad I don't just take photos of the "the events" because when I look back at the everyday life pictures, I'm so happy I captured those moments that can just get forgotten.

My Memories Suite is rated #1 by Amazon and TopTen Reviews and after looking at their website, I was honestly happy to do a review for this company!
As a former scrapbooker who just hasn't had enough time to continue, being able to do it digitally???? Yes, sign me up! 

I was excited to play with the scrapbook software and see what I could come up with.  I'm not one of those who reads all directions first and then plays. I skim and then play around going back to directions looking for whatever I'm working on if I'm 'stuck'.  This software was easy and FUN to play with! 

And you know those photo books that are everywhere? YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN!  I love them! LOVE LOVE LOVE them! I was over the moon that I could create my own! Using this software, you can also create cards, calendars and gifts in addition to the scrapbook features and the photobooks!

I played with a couple pages to get a feel for the software. Easy, peasy.  Seriously. Everything is customizable.  That, my friends, is a huge plus in my book.  But, if you need a page done quickly and without much thought the pre-made pages where you just insert pictures are super cute too!

This first page I did was a completely create from scratch page. 

It was my first try and was a lot of fun to play with the frames, the embellishments and all the extras! I purposely left it as I did it because until I saved it and re-opened it, I didn't see that I had all the room at the bottom of the page.  Which just tells me I need to pay better attention to the page sizing when creating my own pages. I love that everything is easily done and "undone" as I needed.

The second page I did was a pre-made page of an album. This literally took just a few minutes to create and I was just as happy as the "from scratch" page.

I'm super excited to be able to have this digital software to help document my family's photographs!

And I'm also excited to be able to share the software with ONE LUCKY READER!  This is an $80 value the winner will get for free! Y'all know how I feel about winning and free!

  1. What a fun opportunity for you! You'll love using the digital software. I just made a book for my inlaws that took 5 minutes. I dropped each finished page into each book page, and documented the entire year of pictures they were in with the kids.
    There are so many ways to use and enjoy the benefits of digital scrapbooking!!
    Have fun with it.
