My Memories Giveaway!

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by the lovely people at MyMemories to review their digital scrapbooking software. I was pretty darn excited because I've been wanting to try out this whole digital scrapbooking thing for quite a while, but never could justify spending so much just to try it out. Not only have they provided me with the software to try, they are also allowing me to give away one free copy to my readers! =D

I was a little nervous because I wasn't sure if their software was Mac friendly or not. Good news: it is! They have a PC version and a Mac version! It's really easy to download and doesn't take too much time. I was also surprised at how easy it is to maneuver. Some programs aren't so easy for me to find my way around, but this definitely is. So easy that I've been able to start a few albums already. =)

I've been wanting to do one for Joe and I yearly, but haven't really done anything. What I love about this software is that you can easily add your photos to it. It's not like regular scrapbooking {which I still love doing} where you have to purchase everything, print out the photos, decide which to use and then cut them if need be. Just click and add. Easy peasy!

For these, I chose to select a photo layout and then my own "paper" background. You can also make your own photo layout, or choose from papers they have. You can also purchase backgrounds and paper kits from their online store. Some layouts are free and others are a few dollars. Here is what I've done so far:

A homecoming page for the Joe and Sarah album...

And a little page for photos we had taken about a week ago by the lovely Annie. =)

Not only will I be able to use it for our yearly photo album, but I'll also be able to use it to document the life of our little one once she gets here. I can only imagine how many photos we'll be taking... For this one, I chose a ready-made layout. Here's a little preview of what I'd like to do with her album.

So cute and girly. =)

You can also use their software to create Christmas cards, announcements and pretty much anything you can imagine. I just like the easy scrapbooking function.

I am also a follower of your blog! I am a bad blogger and haven't really ever done anything with mine, but now that I have the baby I want to get into it more! I need time and have to figure out how to make it work for me instead of it working me! haha, but I am a blog stalker big time!

I love the wrapped in ribbons kit. I like that it's still holiday themed but not so much so that I couldn't use it for living in Hawaii.
