Announcement & Another Awesome Giveaway!

Guess what?!  I was chosen to be one the contestants in the Crafting with the Stars competition over at Sew Dang Cute Crafts!  I'm so excited and a little nervous too.  I was so honored to be included in such a talented group.  I can't wait until Friday when the contestants/stars pairings will be announced!  It is such a fun competition, and I'm looking forward to sharing each of the challenges with you.  For now pray that my creative juices start flowing.  I'll need all the help I can get; the competition is fierce.  (Who remembers which Project Runway star used that word about a million times?)

Now on to the awesome giveaway!

My Memories Suite wants to offer one of you lucky readers a FREE copy of their digital scrapbooking software!

I was excited to receive a copy myself, and I've had all kinds of fun playing around with this scrapbook software!  I was a little reluctant to try it at first because I'm not very savvy when it comes to using software.  Believe me, if I can use this software, anyone can!  It is so easy to use.  They have all kinds of free tutorials available, but I didn't even need to use them!  It was really very self-explanatory.  You can use this digital scrapbooking software for so much more than just creating scrapbook pages too!  You can make photobooks, cards, videos, calendars, and so much more!

I've been working on a little yearbook of sorts for, ahem, 2010.  It's better late than never!  With this software it is really easy to put it all together.

I really love that you have so many options with this scrapbook software.  You can print your pages at home, have them professionally printed, or export them to JPEG (which is what I did with the above layout).  The possibilities are really endless.

Here's a page of a calendar I'm still putting together.  It may or may not end up being a Christmas gift for the grandparents.

There is also a My Memories store filled with tons products and freebies that you can download right to your scrapbook software.

So, want to know how you can win a FREE copy of the #1 rated My Memories Suite 2.0 Software (which retails for $40)?! 

There are lots of chances to win!
