LIZ is the LUCKY WINNER OF MyMemories Digital Software giveaway!!
With all of her extra entries she up'd her chances and won!
Have fun with the software!

GIVEAWAY! Draw Friday October 28, 2011:

MyMemories is a type of digital scrapbooking software.
To be honest, I am not a big "scrapbook-er" but this is something completely different. It gives you the feel of a scrapbook without the time and hassle of cutting, pasting, finding the cute scrapbook accessories etc... You can take design completely into your own hands and design pages from scratch, or you can choose a pre-fab design from one of the 100's of designs they offer...and it becomes as simple as a drag and drop for your photos to the scrapbook pages.

I love the layout of the MyMemories software. It is VERY easy to use; Yet, I get the sense it can be quite intricate if you choose it to be by customizing ALL of your own options. Really that is up to you! If you aren't wanting to build an entire book, you can build by the pages and save them as individuals as well. With the pages, you can print them, email them or even share them in a blog post! Below is a VERY beginner level page that I quickly made as I was exploring what the scrapbooking software had to offer.

The pages look so nice on their own as well as in a book. A fun gift idea...my thoughts, Christmas!

MyMemories has many easy ways to learn how to use their products and all that they have to offer!
Check out this video on YouTube. You will be blown away by all that this software can do.
DVDs with music, books, cards, calenders...honestly the list goes on.

I have been using a different photo book software in the past to build our memory books; I am excited for the change and all that MyMemories has to offer.

For more help and examples of MyMemories, check out their site by clicking the links throughout, or like them on Facebook...or again, check them out on YouTube!
