My Memories

I used to have time to really collect my memories. On paper, no less. And, I was relatively good at it. Granted, this was in 1999, so I know how much the scrapbooking 'industry' has changed since then.

Having two kids and a life with my husband, I keep telling myself I don't have time to collect my memories, other than the requisite million photos in Picasa. That rarely get printed. But, the thing that bothers me is that OTHER people have time to do it. People with more children, jobs, and generally just more on their plate. If they can do it, so can I. If I want to, if I make time to.

Many friends of mine used to tell me about digital scrapbooking. I thought, "Oh please, I still won't have time for that!" I thought it would be a waste of money and that it would just sit on my computer and rarely be used.

Luckily, My Memories had another thing in mind. They offered me their new software to try and review. And, giveaway a copy to one of you. All I can say is, I've been on it since I installed on Monday, and the possibilities are literally, limitless. I am officially addicted.

I have been working on a few pages in an album to show y'all some of the many things the program can do. And y'all, I'm not even creative! I can't even imagine what you could make if you actually have creative bones in your body! Next stop is making yearly books for the kids. I know, I know, I'm behind on this train! You can make scrapbook layouts, photo books, cards, videos, you name it! 

Here are the first three pages of my album. You can add TONS of embellishments, your choice of background, more or less pictures, bigger or smaller! I LOVE the word art! I've got to work more on embellishments, but the "theme" I was going for with these pages was a fall feel.

I am working through my overwhelming sense of knowing everything now, learn it, do it, make something awesome! And, just focusing on all the many wonderful aspects the program has to offer.

So, here is some great news if you aren't the lucky winner of the giveaway!
