Recently I was contacted by Liz from MyMemories to do a review and giveaway of the Mymemories Suite. (MyMemories is a digital scrapbooking program and so much more) At first I was hesitant to agree to do a review, while I love taking pictures, I have never really been a big fan of scrapbooking. But,I thought, what better time to try it out than right before the holidays? So, with that in mind I sat down and messed around with the software. It was a little daunting at first, and I was just attempting to use the pre-designed templates included with the program. I almost gave up, but then I discovered the Mymemories blog that has tons of helpful information including video and PDF tutorials and project information. After watching only the Get Started video, I was able to make a few pages using the free templates and a quick pages Christmas pack that I purchased. The three photos below are of my most recent projects.I am certainly glad that I did not give up, and I look forward to using this program for preserving my memories and family photos!

The website is easy to navigate, has lots of freebies including pages, elements and word clusters and fun packs to purchase at reasonable prices. The pack I purchased included 8 quickpages for $3.50. What I thought was cool about it was, as a photoshop user, I can download the pages and elements to use right in Photoshop if I wish (or any other photo editing program).
This is the perfect time to take a look at the program with the holidays coming up, here are a few of the seasonal packs available for purchase click on the thumbnails to check them out:)
