Entries are now closed! The winner has been chosen and is being emailed! Thanks!

Yay! My first giveaway! And for an awesome product!

Ok... so I am soooo not a scrapbooker! I have a love hate relationship with scrapbooks. I love to look/receive/have them, but I hate to make/design/compile them!

In comes this cool digital scrapbooking software! This software has so many features, is very easy to use, lots of ways to share, and best of all,  new and different layouts all the time! With this software, I will be making scrapbooks galore! Right off the bat, I did these two pages!

I downloaded some of the amazing free kits and background papers to do these, but there are lots of papers, embellishments and pages already included.    There are also lots of kits available on the My Memories website at very reasonable prices. And.... you can add music and videos to your scrapbooks with one click!

There are  lots of ways to share your book once it is finished. You can print it, export it to a jpeg, have a professional printed and bound scrapbook, calendar, dvd, movie, just any way you like it. You can turn your scrapbook into an interactive album on a disc that will automatically play on a computer!

I also love the fact that on their blog at they have weekly challenges and tutorials. If you 'like' their Facebook page, they have giveaways and you can get free stuff there too! There is so many amazing features included in this software that I cannot fit in one post, so check out all the features by clicking on the pic!
