My Memories Scrapbooking Software / Review & Giveaway

Over the last year, I've been trying to be a little more crafty. I learned how to crochet. I've gotten back to sewing a little. I even bought a Cricut. With the Cricut came the idea to get into scrap booking. I have made a couple as gifts for other people and found I really enjoyed it.

Imagine my surprise when I got an email from Liz at My Memories, the digital scrap booking company asking if I would like to do a review and giveaway of their scrap booking software. The answer to that question was a no brainer. "Yes, please" was my answer, of course.

I didn't have any experience with scrap booking software, so I didn't really know what to expect. What I didn't expect was to be blown away by all the things you can do with this software. I am amazed by all the choices you have. There are templates you can use, but you can create your own with ease.

Below are pictures of two pages that I made when I was playing with the program. It was fun to look through all the things the program has to offer. There are all kinds of background papers, word art designers, embellishments and shapes to name a few.

This is just a small sampling of what you can do with My Memories software.  I can't wait to really get into it and start a real scrapbook.  So far, I have just been playing around.  The real fun will start when I get serious with the program.  Believe it or not, you can even make photo books, cards, videos, you name it!

Now comes the fun for all of you.  Liz has offered to give one of you a chance to win your very own My Memories digital scrap booking software kit.
