My Memories review and giveaway

Edited to add: The winner of the software giveaway is: LUANNE.

Congrats, and I'll be contacting you on how to proceed with the prize. Thank you ladies for joining in. I do think this is a good program for those wanting to start scrapbooking. So definitely consider getting it. I saw many others hosting giveaways too lately - Hope you others can win one of those!

Look for a FANTASTIC giveaway at the end of my review!!!

I was contacted by My Memories Suite to review their Digital Scrapbooking Software.
Now, I am not a digital scrapbooker, or a scrapbooker really at all.
But I'm checking into all this as I want to start one for my granddaughter. So I decided to try it out because I want to make digital memory books of special events for my little Dahlia.
Who knows what could happen :)

The downloading was easy and after it was ready, I went back and downloaded several freebie quick pages and things too. And there are tons of tutorials. That's always helpful for me!
They are videos--which are right up my alley! I decided to just play around, and wow, it's very easy.
Now I have gone back and watched a couple quick tutorials on printing, and I also emailed asking a question which was promptly answered. So I am thrilled so far!

I opened the program with NO idea of what I was going to make and just started. First I made a 4 page scrapbook. I chose a photo book for those first baby pictures and went from there. I added embellishments, text, and so quick - I had these pages. I loved how easy it all was. And then I proceeded to
print one page off as a piece to use on a card - Now that is truly right up my alley!!

Sorry I couldn't get these to load up to show off, but if you go to the My Memories blog you can see how lovely they are, and they print up just a nicely as you see there!

And now for the GIVEAWAY!!
The My Memories Company is has given me another copy of the software to give away as a prize to one of you lucky Blog readers of my Blog.

I also was given a SPECIAL COUPON CODE for anyone else that is interested in purchasing a copy of the software, or for anyone who finds out about this too late to join in.

Blog candy of a different sort....

I just ran across a blog candy that I find unusual, and wish I had room for - so I'm telling you about it. go check out Little Musings right now and see what she has up for grabs! They are adorable. I just simply don't have room for them myself, or I'd be signed up!

Anyway, the drawing happens quickly and you are responsible for the shipping costs, but where else could you get an original piece of art like this for free?!

TSB - The Stamping Boutique

Here's another card with the cute boots and fall leaves! Stamping Boutique has some great images - go check them out!

Hands off the candy! WMC73

I am entering this into the Wee Memories Anything Goes Challenge .

I think this is a cute little Stamping Boutique image, and since I have made several trips to get candy for Halloween, it's quite appropriate too!

Here's a cute little card using the pumpkins image from Designed2Delight this past week.

And I love the spiderweb background papers I had.

Card Cupids Orange challenge

Here's my entry into the Card Cupids Orange challenge using The Stamping Boutique image. Doesn't that just make your mouth water? And would make a great Thanksgiving card (remember how some smartie says, "grace" instead of a blessing sometimes? Well, I included it already).

The winner of this challenge gets some Bugaboo images, so that's a great incentive too! Goes until Oct 22, I think - Check it out.
