My Memories Suite - Review and a Giveaway

**This contest is now closed.**

I have made scrapbooks for each of my three oldest children for graduation gifts. They love them. However, I have never worked with digital scrapbooks. MyMemories.com is a digital scrapbooking software company that makes digital scrapbooking not only fun, but easy.

Since I am so green at most things digital, I decided to really play around with my new scrapbook software in order to get a real feel for it. After an easy download experience, I received an e-mail from MyMemories. In it were ideas for projects other than the traditional scrapbook. I was intrigued.

So here's what I did. I made a recipe book page using a recipe I'd received from a company by e-mail. I opened up one of the templates that came with my digital scrapbooking software from MyMemories.com. Then, I easily cut and pasted a picture of the final product from the recipe e-mail onto the template. Under that, I typed into a text box the recipe itself. As for the recipe title, I typed that in another text box to the left and above the picture. I intend to make a full recipe book over time....it'll take me a while!

Some facts that I've noticed while using my new scrapbook software:

  • The download can take a little time, but if you're using a broadband or other high speed connection, shouldn't be too cumbersome.
  • It uses Quicktime (at least it does for me).
  • It takes a while to get used to and understand, but the website has helpful user guides, a tutorial, and technical support. In addition, they have a helpful blog.
  • You can do a lot more than simply make scrapbooks.
  • You get a lot with the initial software package. If you want more, it's there for sale at decent prices.
  • It's addictive.
