A New Giveaway!

Hi everyone!

I think I should have named this post “A New Addiction” instead of “A New Giveaway”!

I know a lot of you have seen this giveaway on a few other blogs in the last month or so ago. I was contacted to do a review and giveaway here as well but, I was a little hesitant. Why? Because I am so naive when it comes to computer stuff and downloads and all that kind of things. But, I am trying to be brave and step into new unchartered areas. So, I downloaded……..

STM_Email_Header_640My Memories Suite is a digital scrapbooking software.  I love to scrapbook but, I have to confess, I have fallen so far behind these days. Scrapbooking is so fun, like returning to elementary school because you get to play with stickers, pretty papers, coloring, gluing….all that fun stuff. But, you need a place to really spread out and that isn’t practical for me lately. Not to mention, hauling out all your supplies. It can be a very fun but, very messy project.

I have wanted to try digital scrapbooking but, to be honest I was a little intimidated by it. When I agreed to try this product, I still wasn’t very comfortable with it. I didn’t even look at the software for a couple of days. Well, yesterday, I bit the bullet and opened up the software just to take a peek. 3 hours later my head was buzzing with tons of ideas! I had created a new album with the Princesses “1st day of Preschool” photos. Now I am working on scanning all her “artwork” and then adding those pictures to this album.

There is a ton of fun things to do with My Memories!  I have only just started and used the basic quick and easy choices and I can’t believe how much fun that was. I can’t wait to explore all the other features!

After a couple of hours playing, I realized that there was a lot of things I could make in this program. You don’t have to just make traditional scrapbook pages. I want to make some fun Christmas art work with this program. I have some old thrifted frames that I can redo and frame these creations.

No Mess, No hauling out supplies, no buying embellishments!

Just sit at your computer and play whenever you have time!

Love it!

I decided to start making digital scrapbook pages of all my teascapes for 2011. So, here are four of those pages.

tea1tea2  I didn’t do any customizing to it. The software graphics are all in place. I just clicked and added my pictures, embellishments and text. Ta Da!  Think of all the awesome pictures and graphics you could make for your blog. It is so simple!

Be prepared for a new addiction!!
