My First Giveaway :: My Memories Suite 2

YES! The Grimes Times is hosting it's first-ever giveaway. A few weeks ago I was contacted by My Memories to see if I would be interested in hosting a giveaway of their digital scrapbooking software! I have dabbled in digital scrapbooking some, so I thought this would be a good way to find out what other great programs are out there.

It was so easy to use. Now I love me some old-school scrapbooking, but who am I kidding? I still have photos cut, sorted, etc. from 5-10 years ago and stuffed in places just waiting to be scrapbooked. That would mean dragging out everything and having the dining room held hostage for at least three months with pictures everywhere.

With digital scrapbooking you don't have to drag out anything! It's all literally at your fingertips. Just have your photos on your computer and get to work! I played around with the software and found it very user friendly. In a matter of minutes you can create a very beautiful scrapbook page.

Here's one page that took literally just minutes to complete. One neat thing about My Memories is that their software offers lots of options. And there are lots of FREE downloads. The above page was created using some of their free kits.
Another feature that I like about this software is the embellishments. See that cute white bow on my page? I thought it fit in just perfectly with this beach scene and my three little girls!
And notice the word wrap on the corners of the picture....another neat feature!

There are so many options: from page color, page texture, fonts, word art, etc....just to name a few! As I was fixing this page, I thought how handy this could be with my Girl Scout troop this year. I can share all the troop pics with the moms with a cute digital scrapbook. And if I want a hardbound copy, that is an option too!

I really had fun playing around with the software. You can share your pages and albums with friends. There's also a song and video feature with this software!
You are not limited to just scrapbook pages. You can make cards and calendars, too. I made this calendar in about 2 minutes! It would be neat to have as a wallpaper for your computer.
This is how YOU can win::

I forgot to tell you I really like the Beauty Blossom Clusters. But honestly it is really not fair to pick just one.. I haven't seen any I don't like on MyMemories

I have been out of town and missed the announcement of your giveaway. I see there are very few comments and wondered if you may have extended it. If so I would love to enter. I have visited MMS site and my favorite kit is In the Stillness.
