My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Giveaway!

REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY!!!!!


Now, it's no secret that I am not into scrap booking. I mean, if you haven't ignored my url, that is: "becauseidontscrapbook.blogspot.com" - Now, don't get me wrong, I can see myself becoming obsessed with it.  I spend a lot of time drooling over the pretty paper and the cool scissors and other awesome accessories whenever I'm in any kind of craft store. 

However, since all my photos are stored on my computer, and I have not printed a single photo in....oh...going on four years, I could never justify the money I would spend- no matter how glittery, chic, or otherwise pleasing to my soul those pretty papers are! 

I AM into photography.  I LOVE taking pictures. And I love editing them. 

When I was approached about a review and giveaway of My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Software, I got all giddy and excited.

And I wasn't disappointed. As a matter of fact, I was also pleasantly surprised. It was even MORE fantastic than I imagined.

First of all, this software is EASY. And that's a must for me. I'm not a COMPLETE idiot when it comes to technology, I do well enough figuring things out that I need to figure out. Or I know the right places to look- but a program that, while cool, and kind of fun, well, if it confused me, I'd quit using it.

A bit timid, at first, to do more than dabble my toes in uncharted territory, I started out with the ready-made templates. VERY easy- just select picture, which appears in a left hand column of your screen, and drag it to a designated photo area.

Personally, I was thinking of making a calendar to hang up or make my background wallpaper on the computer, so I went with that. Here are a few of the months I came up with: 









I think I spent a good 6 hours playing and messing with the software, and finally got the nerve to try something of my own. From scratch, if you will.

Little Teague will turn 1 just after the beginning of the year, so I started with that- I chose the shape, the size, and then the paper. I added pictures and embellishments, changed colors and re positioned. 


The thought of making my OWN Christmas cards this year had me just crazy with excitement! No more cheap Wal-Mart cards!  This is what I made:


I just LOVE all the snowflakes! 

This is going to be AWESOME for birthday invites- imagine what you could make!

On top of all of that, you have access to SCORES of new embellishments, backgrounds, mats, papers, frames and so on, all for low prices at their website: www.mymemories.com, PLUS, an EXCELLENT source of help answers when you need them!

All this sounds great right? Well, ENTER TO WIN A FREE downloadable copy of My Memories Suite V3! 

BUT WAIT!!! It gets better! When you use this code: STMMMS81813 for a 10.00 discount on My Memories Suite V3- you know, just in case you don't win, though, in purchasing, you can choose the download OR to have the software mailed to you.  And honestly, this is such a wonderful Christmas gift- enter to win, AND purchase a copy for that person in your life who is a scrapbooking FOOL! <3- heaven knows we all know several!
