My Memories Suite - Digital Scrapbooking Software (review and GIVEAWAY!)

I was recently contacted by the wonderful people over at MyMemories to try out their digital scrapbooking software.  As a novice blogger, I'm always looking for ways to make the images I post more interesting for you all to look at!  My Microsoft Paint skills are lacking and other softwares are costly or too time consuming to get the desired effect.  I end up posting unaltered pictures of my adventures and I don't feel that they get the justice they deserve.

The MyMemories suite allowed me to create fun and attractive collages of my photos to show off on my blog, in e-mails or even print.  The best part about it?  It was SO easy - and MUCH cheaper than actual scrapbooking.

Below are some of my creations:

MyMemories has several additional kits and paper packs that you can purchase (there are even some free ones!) to use with the software and they also send their members newsletters providing tips and advice on how to make YOUR digital scrapbooks even better.  As another way of involving its users, the MyMemories Blog hosts a weekly challenge allowing YOU to show off what you can do with this great software for a chance to win credit to use in the store.

Afraid to try new software?  Afraid that you just don't have that "scrapbooking gene"?  No worries, the people over at MyMemories provide great e-mail tech support, step-by-step tutorials, as well as offer "Speed Scrap" events on Facebook where you can follow simple instructions to create something new and beautiful (be sure to "Like" them on Facebook to participate!).

I've had so much fun trying out this new software and feel that I've only grazed the surface of what it can do.  I'm looking forward to learning more about it and becoming an active digital scrapbooker.

So now that I have you interested, here's the great part:  The generous people at MyMemories have given me a copy of the MyMemories software to giveaway to one of my readers!  This is a $39.97 value!

okay, so normally the first and 2nd or even 3rd person is never picked in a give away and i bet that will happen this time and I waited till I was a higher number in the hopes that it would make me a winner but I'm not good at betting- but I'd pick something along the lines of a baby pack to spice up some pics for my new lil' baby comin!
