Thanks for stopping by my little blog. Its purpose isn't so much to show off my work, it is more of a way for me to catalog the things I've created. I hope you enjoy peeking at my projects while you are here!

My Memories Suite Review and GIVEAWAY!!

Hello blog world!  I know I've been MIA lately, but our family is moving and boy does that take a lot of time!  Full time teacher, mom, wife, and then moving on top of it...well...that is just a full plate!

I am writing today to tell you about a cool program I was introduced to.  It is called My Memories Suite and it is so fun!  This software is an Amazon best seller and #1 rated scrapbooking software.  It is a digital scrapbooking software by name, but can be used to do so much more!  I played around with it the other day and made several little projects to show you.  I love how fast and easy it is!  It would have taken me days to do with paper what I just did digitally in a few minutes!  *I have to say that after I finished all of this, I went back in and found so much more cool stuff I didn't even see the first time!  There are free digital scrapbooking kits on the website to download too.  Wow!

I am so picky and well...unskilled at picking coordinating colors and patterns, but this makes it so easy!  I can try things out and see how it will actually look with the click of a button and then change it just as quickly!  The background papers and patterns are so much fun (the ones I used are pretty simple because, well...that is how I roll...but there are some really fun ones in there too!)  The embellishment options are super neat too.  Ok, so let me show you my projects and then I'll give you all the details on the giveaway!  There are a few because I just couldn't pick one!

The first one I made is a square greeting card, or even post card if you wanted.  I thought it would be fun to send a Thanksgiving card out with some pictures of our son at the pumpkin patch.  Isn't this cute?!  Maybe I'm just biased.  ;)

These next 2 projects are scrapbook layouts.  I love to scrap in square because, well, I am sucker for symmetry.  :)

For my last project I tried to do something creative that you might not think of when you think about using a digital scrapbooking software.  I thought it would be neat to send out a little bookmark during the holidays for grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.  How cute is this?!  Again, I might be biased because the subject is "as cute as a button"!

I thought it was really sweet!  You would just cut them apart with a paper cutter once they are printed and there ya go!  Love it!

Ok, so now to the giveaway!  My Memories has generously offered one of you the opportunity to win a free My Memories Suite download!  You get the whole program for free!  Let the digital creating begin!  Now that I have your attention on this paragraph for sure, I wanted to let you know that if you want to purchase the My Memories Suite, please use my code STMMMS73875 when ordering.  You get $10 off and a $10 gift certificate for the My Memories online store!  Now, to be eligible for the giveaway you need to do a few things:
