My Memories Give-Away

I know I've mentioned before that the folks over at  "MyMemories" have asked me to do a small review of their digital scrapbooking software. They've also given a copy of this software (worth almost $40!) to be used as a give-away prize :)

Now firstly, let me say that I am not much of a scrap-booker. I *do*, however, have lots of kits that I've bought in the past, always promising that I'd give it a go....someday! Obviously, that "someday" hasn't quite arrived yet :) Also, I've found that with the advent of digital photography, I have loads (and I mean LOADS) of pics that have been taken and are just sitting on a memory stick or a laptop. So the idea of turning these pics into something pretty without printing out all the pics, and then spending hours and hours and hours assembling scrap layouts and pages, held a definite appeal!

So what's so cool about this digital software package? Well....let's see.....quite a bit actually!

Besides the fact that "MyMemories" is rated #1 by Amazon, it's super user friendly...promise!
You can choose to either use a template that's ready made, or play around with the loads and loads of background papers and embellishments and create your own these

Or if you're in a rush and don't want to mess about, you can use one of the built in templates, like this one

Another plus is how easy everything is laid out. There's no guessing where to go to if you want to add an embellishment - you click on the button that says "Embellishments"  - there's no 10 step click to find the button! You're then presented with a list of categories to choose from and off you go! The exact same with your background papers :)

You can always add papers and other bits and bobs as and when you need it or even if you're just bored with the variety that's already on offer in the package! Oh, and another HUGE bonus (well I consider it a biggy bonus!), is that you can get these extras for free! Yes there are the bits that you can buy, but they offer some lovely extras for free! And I love free :)

Other than scrapbook sheets, you can also use this software to create your own personalised calendars or printable photobooks.

There are also some great tutorial videos available on YouTube if you somehow manage to get into a muddle!

Before I forget to mention it - this is a DIGITAL version of the software. The winner of the giveaway will be mailed the voucher code to enable them to download the software for free.

To enter is as easy as this software :)
1. Just leave me a comment on this post letting me know that you'd like this software
2. Linking back to this post will get you a second entry :)

That's it! You do not have to be a follower, but would appreciate a mention of the give-away if you do have a blog :)

Take care x x

Looks good and easy and I'm not a huge scrapbooker but like you have tons and tons of photos digitally.
