My Memories Suite Giveaway

Alright, so I know I’m like way behind the times and I’m probably the only scrapbooker in history that hadn’t taken the digital software plunge.  But seriously, you’re talking about, Brooke… the same Brooke that finally sent her first text like last week.  Maybe that’s a slight exaggeration but it really wasn’t more than just a couple of months ago.  I’m awesome!

And really I don’t know that you could really call me a scrapbooker given that I have never completed one.  I’ve started them many times and have SOME pages finished but the reality is, most of my pages are half done.  Most don’t even have any pictures on them.  Sad, I know.  They’re just completed pages and I’ve been too lazy to actually put pics on them. 

Sigh… what can I say?

Well, imagine my excitement when Liz from My Memories Suite contacted me to do a review and giveaway of their digital scrapbooking software.  HECK YEAH!  I’ll do it!  Now maybe all of my children will feel loved…. K is the only one that has even somewhat of a scrapbook right now.  And she’s only made it to barely a year old in it.  I’m only ten years behind or so.  No big deal… YIKES!

Now please remember that I am completely new at this and had absolutely no clue what I would in for.  Surprisingly, the software is pretty easy to use and you can really do so much with it.  Being a beginner, I’m very basic and boring…. this page does not do justice whatsoever to the possibilities of this program! 

First Pages-001

I thought it turned out alright for my first attempt!  Actually that was more like my fifth or sixth but who’s counting?  You don’t get to see the very first ones because I’m trying to improve them… maybe you’ll see them later.

I haven’t had a chance to really play with the program as much as I would like but I have already fallen in love with this whole idea of digital scrapbook software!  And you can really do so much with it!  I’ve seen people make subway art with it, calendars, blog banners, gift tags, and much more.  And one nice thing is that you can upload (or is it download?) digital scrapbooking kits from just about anywhere on the web.  Not to mention, My Memories has a whole gallery of kits for purchase and many of them for FREE to add to your collection.  How cool is that?  Papers, embellishments, borders, etc. 

Now, who wants to scrapbook digital style?  Would you like to be the one to win this fabulous software?  I can promise you, it is so fun and so worth it!  And your pages will be far more beautiful than my basic boring one.  It would probably help if I were computer savvy but I’m not.  Someday…

You have a few ways to enter.  Visiting MyMemories site and choosing a favorite kit is mandatory, everything else is optional.  You can ‘like’ MyMemories on Facebook, and/or tweet, facebook or blog about this giveaway. 

And hey, if you don’t win or just can’t wait to get your hands on this software, here’s a code you can use to receive $10 off AND $10 credit to use in the MyMemories store.  Just copy and paste to avoid errors when ordering.

The code is:  STMMMS62057

And now let’s get on with the giveaway… good luck!  Giveaway will be open for one week.  Winner will be announced March 10th!  (And please forgive me if I don't know what I'm doing with this rafflecopter giveaway widget.  Never used it before.)

Awesome Giveaway. I LOVE digital scrapbooking. I would love to try this out. I have been using Smilebox which is awesome and then making some of my own in photoshop, but this looks easier than photoshop and they have way cute stuff!
