My Memories (Scrapbooking software) - product review and giveaway

I have always wanted to start scrapbooking but finding the time to do so, well you mommies know where I am going with that one. The biggest problem with scrapbooking is getting the pictures you want to use printed.  I don't know too many people who still get their pictures developed.  Almost everyone I know owns a digital camera and their pictures are all on their computer, CD/DVD or their smartphones.  Digital scrapbooking makes it so you don't have to develop your pictures and they are all right there at the touch of your keyboard.

I was approached by My Memories to try out their software.  It was quite easy to download the software onto my computer and I liked that they had a version for both Windows and Mac.  Once it was downloaded on to my system, I restarted my computer and got started right away!   I was able to scrapbook while feeding the baby.  (Wouldn't be able to do that if I was going the old fashioned way)  First I started with the album templates already set up.  I was surprised at how easy the software was to use.  I was able to crop, remove red eye and enhance all the pics.  I added text easily and changed the fonts and colors to my liking.  Within 15 mins, I had created 6 adorable pages.

Now I am not the most creative person in the world but I liked that they also have the option to create your own pages.  I had fun going through all the different things I could do on my own.  Here is what I made on my first try.

It was  easy to do.  There are so many options to choose from whether you used their templates or create your own.  It can be a little overwhelming at first but so much fun to go through.  I can't wait to see how much more I can do. 

Check out this tutorial to see how easy it is to use.

I also had fun looking around the My Memories site. There were a ton of additional kits that could be purchased.  Some of which were only $0.99 and some were even FREE!  My Memories is offering ALL my readers a $10 discount on their software and on any purchase of their web store.  Just use the following code at time of purchase STMMMS48081.
