MyMemories Suite v2 Review+Giveaway

Summer is coming to a close and kids are going back to school. What are you going to do with all of those summer pictures still on your camera card or computer? Have you been wanting to learn more about digital scrapbooking but don't know where to start? Read on :)

Liz from My Memories asked if I wanted to host a giveaway and give a review for MyMemories Suite v2 software. Well heck yeah!

I've dabbled in digital scrapbooking here and there using PSE but it can be a little intimidating and it's pricey. What I liked about MyMemories Suite v2 software is that it comes with templates and ready made pages. You can also custom make your album but I really like templates, it makes my life easier and sometimes I just want to click, drag and drop a photo in a spot that is already there for me.

I made this page by using a photo template. I chose my background paper, text, ect. For the black mat I used the shape option for a square, sized it and filled in my color.

What I liked:

1. Again, love the templates.
2. I'm able to use my digital stash I've downloaded. 95% of my stash is things I've downloaded for free.
3. Hellloooo, spell check!
4. MyMemories website has video tutorials to guide you through software and tips. The video below is very helpful and will let you know exactly what this software is all about. (To see video better just click on "Welcome to the Family! link below video.)

What was so so:

1. Some of the colors isn't my style but that's my personal taste.
2. I wish my last font choice would stay chosen if I'm adding another area of text.

So now all of the official business is taken care of here is the fun stuff. MyMemories is giving away MyMemories Suite v2 software to one of my blog readers.
