My Memories... and a Giveaway !!

I love pictures. I really do. I wish I were a better photographer, and I wish I weren't woefully behind on putting what pictures I have taken onto... well, anything but random folders on my laptop. Or FireMan's laptop. Or our external hard drive. Or... still on my camera, or FireMan's camera, or our dive camera, or our phone.

You know, because I'm organized like that.

And let's not forget that I haven't put together an album or photobook since our honeymoon. And that would be four years ago.

I love photobooks, scrapbooks, albums and the like. Love them. Photos are memories... and I love them. But quite frankly, putting all those pictures into any sort of easily-viewed, looks-nice method of display takes way too much time.

Well, maybe not anymore.

A few weeks ago the nice folks over at My Memories contacted me about reviewing their product on my blog, my honest reaction was: "I want to, but I'm not sure I have time for this."

I did have time for this.

Seriously, I dove in without reading any instructions or anything, and had my first piece done within maybe 10 minutes after downloading the software.

Spent some more time browsing around, and discovered all kinds of templates, add-ons, and the like.

Wanna make a collage photo? Here ya go.

Wanna make a header for your blog? You can do it.
Did ya notice my new header? Yep, did it via My Memories.

Seriously, with all the templates, embellishments, and add-ons they provide, plus your own creativity, the possibilities are endless.

And yes... You wanna make a digital scrapbook? Well, here ya go.

For me, one of the best things about having this software is... there's no uploading thousands of pictures! That alone saves innumerable hours of selecting & loading the pictures you want to use.

You can use any files on your computer (or on multimedia attached to your computer). You don't have to upload them anywhere. You don't have to print them out ahead of time. Heck, you don't even have to sort them if you don't want. It's up to you.

The best part of all this? My Memories is giving one of my readers a FREE download of My Memories Suite v2.0 (retail price $39.97)!!

I know, exciting, right?!?

All you have to do to enter is to head on over to their site and view their Free Kits (free add-ons use with your software download), pick out the scrapbook style you like the best, then come back here & leave a comment telling me which one you picked. Easy breezy!

Better yet (yes, it gets better!) - if you like the software and don't happen to be the lucky winner, you can still get a discount! And who doesn't love coupons, right?

My readers will receive $10 off the retail price of the software, plus receive $10 in free merchandise from My Memories by using coupon code:
Any time. No expiration date!

I love being able to give my readers something, and am thrilled that My Memories is not only giving one of you a product, but they're giving the rest of you a discount. That makes me love them even more.

Now... go one... go pick out your favorite free kit & report back.


The contest will run thru 11:59:59pm (EST) on October 18, 2011. The winner will be selected by random draw and will be notified via email. He or she will have 48 hours from the time of notification to respond before another winner is drawn.

I was given a copy of My Memories Suite V2.0 to review, however all thoughts and opinions shown here are exclusively my own, and no additional compensation was given for the review.

I am so excited, I think you know by now how much I LOVE pictures. I have multiple scrapbooks for each of my kids, but I have been wanting to try something new, and Natalie really wants to make her own dance book with all her friends in it. So anyway I would love the Best Friends extras and the Time to Play quick pages. They are so cute.

I love pictures, too, and wish I could take better ones. I keep wanting to take a class at the local vo-tech, but I fear it'd be a waste of time.

I've tried the digital scrapbooking before, but wasn't too good at it.
I was trying from scratch, though, having to find my own backgrounds and doo-dads and trims and such.
These quick pages look a lot easier to manage.

I picked the Roots & Branches Quick Page Sampler, because I enjoy family genealogy.

I really want to get back into my scrap booking. I have also tried some digital scrapping from scratch and really think a full kit is what I need. Since the majority of pictures that need done here are from vacations I like the Scenes from Summer kit.
