Design Software Giveaway

I'm so excited to be participating in a great giveaway. I was contacted by My Memories Digital Scrapbooking, asking if I'd be willing to host a giveaway of their award winning software! Of course I said yes! 

I downloaded the software yesterday so I could play around a bit. Let me tell you, I think know you will LOVE this! What was funny is I have been working the last two weeks on a "physical paper" scrapbook for my daughters 16th birthday (post to come later) and I thought, "gee, if I had this software two weeks ago, I could have used it to create the book". 

The possibilities are endless when it comes to what you can create. They have templates available to use if you are one who needs a little help and inspiration, or you can start from scratch. Uploading photos is easy.

Talk about a multitude of paper selections, colors, textures and there are so many fun paper kits available online at amazing prices.

You can add fun embellishments to your photos and change fonts as often as you like.

You can create cards, calendars, scrapbooks. You can add video and multimedia, music and narration. There is an option to preview your work and check spelling and other errors (that is a biggie). You can then share your album.

Great features from their website:

Inspiration from other MMS users (yes, this would help me)
