MyMemories Suite Scrapbook Software Review & Giveaway


I will admit it … I am a scrapbooker-wanna-be.  Unfortunately I have yet to complete one scrapbook.  Now, don’t get me wrong … I love my pictures, I love my memories and I want to pass my family history down to my next generations.  But, there’s one major obstacle I face …

Time.

Granny just really does not have the time to go through these thousands of pictures I have, create a layout for several pages of the hard-copy scrapbook, then copy/edit/design … 
do you get the picture … uh, no pun intended at all :)

Well, just in time to come rescue Granny … 

I received an email from MyMemories Suite -- a digital scrapbooking software company – asking me to try out their scrapbook software and write a review.  I was very excited to do this … especially when I still have a lot of my Mother’s original pictures, 
and I had just gotten about 700 pictures from my mother-in-law to scan … 
and that’s not to mention the hundreds (rather thousands) of pictures that I have of ours here at home. 

So, I downloaded MyMemories digital scrapbook software on my laptop and glanced around the site:  themes, backgrounds, embellishments, templates, shapes, texts/fonts/word art … add-on videos/music/links (I admit that I have not integrated these yet) … adjusting pictures through rotating, scaling, converting color...
               Various ways to share the albums – such as printing, exporting to JPEG,
creating a bound photo album, and more. 
And ... this digital scrapbook software is available in either Windows or Mac!

And I was walked through every step.

What I found was a pleasant surprise and most promising ... MyMemories was all-encompassing! Not only was it chock-full of different designs, themes, backgrounds, extras ... but I can also integrate other projects of mine into the albums.  
I have already completed 2 albums in the past week (which is 2 more than I have completed in … well, you know). 

Here are 2 sample pages from one of my albums ... and my favorite subject of all time … 

Lucy!






For this album I chose a preloaded designer template, picked each picture & “clicked” them into the photo slots.  (Even Granny can “drag and click” a picture) 

I’ve had such a great time working/playing/learning MyMemories.  It’s relaxing in the evenings … it’s easy for anyone to use … it gives a scrapbooking outlet for anyone like Granny (you know, the scrapbooker wanna-be :).   
I’m looking forward to returning to my digital scrapbooking as soon as I give you the details on the giveaway:

My favorite template is the "military service" one. It would be perfect for my soldier.
