My Memories Suite has a great assortment of kits! I love the Cherished kit, Christmas Traditions, and Sweet Caroline to mention just a few.
I too, saw this when you first posted it and wasn't going to enter for the same reason. However, I do have a birthday coming up and the kits would be a great, reasonably priced gift idea.
Thank you for a chance to win. I follow by email, love that option!

Have a crafty day.....

Wedding Layout

Hi everyone!

I hope you have had a great week!  Mine has been extremely's that time of year where work gets really busy and my crafting time is at a minimum.  I received a couple crafty packages this week so I'm hoping I can do some crafty projects this weekend.

My hubby and I got married in it is 4 years later and I still haven't created a scrapbook of my wedding pictures yet.  Can you believe it?  I keep meaning to get started on the album but just haven't seemed to get around to it.

As I was sitting at my computer this evening and watching TV, I got to thinking I could 'play' with the My Memories Suite software and do a digital layout of my wedding pictures.  I have a friend whose albums are a mix of digital and traditional I thought I would get started by doing a digital layout so I can print it out later and add it to the album when I start on the traditional layout pages.

If you haven't read my review of the My Memories Suite software, check it out here.  Don't forget to leave a comment HERE for a chance to win a free copy of the My Memories Suite software.

Here is a layout I was able to put together in about 30 minutes using a pre-designed layout and customizing the paper and embellishments.  The part that took the longest was deciding which pictures to use. :)  I really like how it turned out - I prefer simple layouts and not a lot of embellishments, although you can add as many embellishments as you want with the software program.

These pics are of us cutting our cake - can you tell we had fun?

Thanks for stopping by....don't forget to go to my post from Monday to enter for a chance to win a free copy of the My Memories Suite.

Have a crafty day.....

My Memories Suite Software Review and Giveaway

Hi everyone!

I hope you had a great weekend!  I've been enjoying my long weekend - I don't have to go to work today since its Labor Day and our office is closed.  (woo hoo)  I didn't get to do any crafting yet this weekend...but hope to do some today.

My hubby and I left Saturday afternoon and headed to the Outer Banks.  Unfortunately, the southern area of the Outer Banks is still recovering from Hurricane Irene so we were only able to explore the northern portion.  But the weather was beautiful and we were able to ride around with the top down on the car.  Since we couldn't explore the southern part, we headed back home Sunday afternoon....although it was a quick trip, it was definitely fun.  We will definitely be heading back that way in the future...we really want to check out the Southern portion (i.e. Hatteras and Ocracoke areas).

Today I have a new type of post for's my first product review.  : )  After you read about the product that I was given the opportunity to review, be sure you stick around as I have a giveaway and offer for you too.

Have you ever tired digital scrapbooking?  About a week ago I was given the opportunity to receive a copy of a digital scrapbooking software program.  The software program I got to try was My Memories Suite - a super fun and creative program.  It makes creating digital scrapbook pages a breeze.'s not just for scrapbook layouts. You can also use it to make cards, calendars, use it for your kids school projects.....there are so many unique projects you can make with the  My Memories Suite software.  Check out this video for a bit more info!

I love to use my Cricut and scrapbooking tools to create cards and scrapbooks....however, the My Memories Suite software gives me the chance to to get a layout done so much quicker.  I can test the look and change the layout and/or embellishments much quicker and easier than when using traditional scrapbook tools to cut and enhance my paper layouts.  I've been a bit scared of digital scrapbooking in the past....but this software made it so easy for my first time!

Here is just a quick page I put together in just about 10 minutes - the longest part was picking out which pictures to use and choosing the layout/arrangement to use.  I kept the layout fairly simple as I didn't want to take away from the gorgeous scenery in the pictures....the mountains were absolutely breathtaking.  This layout shows some of the pics of me taken while I was on vacation in Austria with my parents and my brother and his girlfriend earlier this summer.  I did a couple other layouts as well....but since they are of pics of my family, I'm not able to post as my family doesn't like their pictures shared.

I also made this super quick card front as I was just playing with all the different features the program has.  Since Halloween is coming up, I thought I'd play around with a Halloween theme and colors.  Of course, you could easily convert this into a scrapbook page by just removing the Happy Halloween sentiment (or minimizing the sentiment) and adding a picture.

I definitely recommend this software and encourage you to check it out.  It has so many cool features and is easy to navigate -- you can start using it immediately after you've downloaded it to your PC.  You can use one of the pre-designed layouts or you can design your own from scratch.  You can even download kits to enhance/use with the default items that come with the software. : )

It's such a fun program that I have a special opportunity for ONE of my blog readers.  How about a chance to win a free download copy of the My Memories Suite program (a $39.97 value).  My Memories Suite has generously offered to sponsor a give away on my blog so that one of my readers can receive a download copy of the My Memories Suite software.  How awesome is that??
