Giveaway Time!

So, you all know I'm a really crafty lady, right? But did you know that I suffer from what psychologists simply deem as "scrapbook anxiety"? It's true! (Okay, I'm not sure if the psychologists part is true, but the part I made up sure is!) I'm not very good at scrapbooking. In fact, when my manager suggested that I become "an expert" for the scrapbook area of the store, I politely declined because I honestly know nothing about it. (If you'd have seen the scrapbooks I created in grade school, you would agree with me.) Pretty much, scrapbooks are not my forte, and I had given up on ever understanding them.

Then something unexpected happened. I was contacted recently by Liz from My Memories to do a giveaway of their digital scrapbooking software. I was hesitant at first, thinking about all the horrors of scrapbook mayhem I had concocted in the past (okay, I may be exaggerating a bit there), but once I played around with it I really started to enjoy it! It makes creating scrapbook pages so much easier because you do it all digitally! I really like that, being a Photoshop aficionado and all :) Plus, I can add my own touch of customization to any of the pages! (Even better!) So of course I said yes, and here we are!

Just in case my description of My Memories was confusing, here's the gist:
My Memories is a digital scrapbooking software designed for anyone from total newbs to the superstars of scrapbooking! Everything you need to get started is included in the software, and you can find hundreds of other packs to buy to fill in the gaps and expand your horizons. From my experience, the whole package seems a lot cheaper than physically doing it yourself. And here's my favorite part: they even offer lots of freebies! Everything from background papers and embellishments to text and Quick Pages (that's what they call pages that are already made for you). I've downloaded a bunch of everything already. Plus, with My Memories, you can save whole albums, convert them to .jpg so you can share them anywhere digitally, and print your scrapbooking pages. But wait, there's more! (lol) I've heard that you can make blog headers easily, as well as holiday cards with My Memories Suite. In fact, I've whipped up a little holiday card of myself and Mr. Marine to show you an example:

That was created using some basic tools, quite a bit of tweaking, and general knowledge of the software. Not bad, eh?

It took a bit of getting use to the interface before I was comfortable exploring my creative side, but once I got the basics down, I really enjoyed it. So much easier than doing it in real life, if you ask me! No mess!

Let's face it, most of us are digital people, and printed photos aren't something we concern ourselves with anymore. If you've ever wanted to try digital scrapbooking software for yourself, or just like to get things for free (hey, I'm not judging you!) then I've got a giveaway for you! I'm giving away a copy of MyMemories Suite Digital Scrapbooking Software v 2.0 to a very lucky reader! And since this is my first giveaway, I want it to be big and fun!
