Its my very first give away, and I am SO EXCITED!
First off let me tell you about this awesome digital scrapbooking software that I have been playing around with for the past few days. If you know me, or have read my "about me" section, you would know that I am not a scrapbooker. I don't have the patience for it, and all the papers and embellishments would take up precious space in my fabric closet. HOWEVER (you saw that coming right?) I was given the opportunity to try out digital scrapbooking and I love it! Oh great. Now I have another craft hobby!
So I downloaded the software, which was super easy, and got right into the simple to use, My Memories Suite program.
Ok. As a disclaimer, I have no idea what to do when it comes to scrapbooking, and I don't know the rules.... if there are any. With that in mind here is something I whipped up using the free papers, embellishments, and such that came with the software. Don't judge too harshly. I'm a noob.
Here are a few pages from a small album I made with pictures from my 2009 annual Mother/ Daughter retreat. A getaway that my sisters, sis-in-law and mom take every fall. I never do anything with the pics and I think My Memories is perfect for organizing the fun times we have on these trips.
Seriously... that child cried so much I decided I was done making babies.
The My Memories Suite software is much more than digital scrapbooking. You can make calendars, photo books, cards, you can add music, videos, web links, share it with friends and family... fun! You can buy different paper packs and pre-made templates and embellishments from them also. I could play with it all day, but I really wanted to share this with you before a month passed by and I was still sitting in this chair playing. So I thought I would add this somewhat cheesy video to show you all the other wonderful things you can do.
Alright. Here is the SUPER EXCITING PART! My Memories is giving one of you lucky duck readers a free download of the My Memories Suite, Digital Scrapbooking Software. For freeeeeeeee (make sure you read that like Adam Sandler in Bedtime Stories. Go back and read it again if you didnt.. its makes it much more exciting). That's an almost $40 value.
