My Memories Suite Giveaway!!!

Hey friends! I'm excited to get to do a little giveaway on the blog today! The folks at My Memories Suite have offered to let me giveaway a copy of their digital scrapbooking software! They also let me have a copy of it to review for you.

So, starting out, you should know that I like the idea of scrapbooking. I like the fun paper and all the stickers and ribbons and accessories. The thing is, I don't love the time it takes to make a scrapbook. I made one for high school many years ago, and while I love it, it took quite a while to put together and I haven't really had the energy to take on another one since. 

I was really excited when the My Memories folks contacted me to review their software so I could give digital scrapbooking a shot. Let me preface by saying that the two weeks that I have had to review the software have been super busy weeks. I spent one weekend on Columbus hanging out with my sister who I get to see twice a year, and another weekend in Florida, hanging out with friends we also rarely get to see. So I haven't had as much time to really discover all that you can do with the software. But, the good news is, with the little time I have had, I've been able to start making pages of several different scrapbook projects. 

I started a California vacation scrapbook and found out I could use my own photo as a background and then add more pictures. Here are a few pages from what I've started on that one. 

And here are a few from a young life camp album I started:

A few things I like about the software:

1. You can add music to your scrapbook and make a movie out of it. I've tried using windows movie maker to make video slideshows and it has always been a huge headache. With this software I was able to easily just add music to my scrapbook, and click a button and it turned my scrapbook into a video with music. 

2. You have lots of options for your scrapbook. You can make it 8 1/2 x 11, portrait or landscape, or 12 x 12. It also can be as many or few pages as you want. The software comes with lots of paper and some fun little embellishments. You can use a theme that's already set up or create your own.

3. You can print it out on our own printer, or send it somewhere to have it printed or just make a movie out of it. 

The software is fairly intuitive. There are lots of things you can do without having to read directions or tutorials. But there are probably a lot more features I haven't discovered yet that you could learn using tutorials.

Overall, I'm excited to play around with it more, and see what I can do.

So now it's your turn. To win a copy of the My Memories Suite software, just go to and let me know which digital scrapbooking kit or layout you like the best and leave a comment letting me know which one it is. And then you're entered.

The giveaway is open until next Friday, October 28 at 5:00 PM.

I liked A time gone by, and a time gone by 2, for putting together old family pictures. A girl and her cat could have many uses with my pictures also!
