I have been trying to decide what I wanted to do on my blog to celebrate my one year anniversary as a blogger. Just when I was about to give up on the idea of doing something special, I received an opportunity to host a giveaway!
I have always loved to scrapbook, but am never organized enough to plan out what I want to do before going to the store. In the end I would end up with a bunch of mis-matched pieces and papers and in frustration I would just stuff it all in a bag and place it out of sight. When I was contacted by My Memories to review their digital scrapbooking software and host a giveaway, I was thrilled. My head began swimming with all types of projects that I could do with the software. Just to get myself familiar with the software, I played around with some pictures of my nephew and great nephew. Here are the results of my first creations:
Also, I have always wanted to get all of the old family photos together and have a genealogy book made. Guess what??? I can now do that thanks to this amazing software! Here are what a few pages might look like in my book:
I found the software easy to use and I liked knowing that there are instructional videos available in case I got stuck. I mean they literally have their own YouTube channel!
Since my blog is primarily focused on things I make for my home, I decided I would use the software to make a little Halloween decoration.
I am going to print this off and decoupage it onto a canvas! There really are so many ways you can use this software and I plan on continuing to show you ways that I am using it over the next few days!
Anyway, as I mentioned before....This is a GIVEAWAY!!!!One lucky person will come away with their own My Memories digital software! So, how do you enter?
