I have been tossing around the idea of doing a few giveaways and reviews for awhile, so when My Memories Suite emailed and asked me to host a giveaway for Amazon's #1 ranked digital scrapbooking software, I jumped at the chance!
I love traditional scrapbooking. I've done several books of my own and some for friends, but having a lot of small children around and a lot of small (expensive) scrapbooking material is a bad combination, especially because I don't have a workroom to close off. Over the past few weeks, I've fallen in love with digital scrapbooking. The Memories Suite has so many options - when I make a digital scrapbook, I can add video, text, embellishments, music, you name it! I started with some of their templates (tons of options!) to save time and learn my way around the program, then I customized them a bit. Plus, you can go online after the initial download and choose from even more layouts, or start from scratch and make your own book. You can even print it! Here are a few pages from one I'm working on, from a recent trip to Chicago with my youngest:
For me, digital scrapbooking does exactly what I need for this stage of my life - it preserves family memories in a fun, creative way, without the hassle and expense of a bunch of equipment and embellishments that my toddler will probably eat at some point.
And - here's the best part! I am allowed to give away one copy of their digital scrapbooking software for FREE!! All you have to do to qualify is:
1) Follow/Friend me via Google Friend Connect or Facebook :)
2) Go to www.MyMemories.com, find a layout or "scrapbooking kit" you like, and leave me a comment with the name of the kit and what kind of subject you'd use it for (i.e. daughter's bday, wedding, etc.). You can do this every day if you want!!
Bonus entry: Follow me on Twitter here (leave me a comment that you did)
Bonus entry: 'Like' MyMemories on Facebook (leave me a comment that you did)
That's it!! I will take entries through next Friday, October 14, and randomly choose and announce the winner on Saturday. (Winner will also be notified via email.)
Do check back on Saturday, because if you don't win, I will be giving out a code that will give you $10 off your digital scrapbook software plus a $10 coupon for additional downloads, that's a great deal!! So enough talk, go to MyMemories.com now and check it out yourself!
