My Memories Review and Giveaway!

Before I get to today's review, here is the winner of the JumpStart Giveaway......congrats to Ali at Running With Spatulas!  Send me an email and I'll get you set up!

I take a lot of photos.  Most of them are in folders on my computer, or in albums.  But I love photo books.  My sister gave me one for my birthday, and I made a huge one from our trip to Disney.  So I was curious though, when My Memories contacted me about their digital scrap booking software. 

The software is easy to use, I downloaded it from the My Memories website.  At first I wasn't sure if I should do a custom book or not, so to keep it simple, I chose one of the templates that came with the software. You aren't limited to those, there are literally dozens on the website that you can download for an additional cost.

I decided to make a book of running memories, I chose a template, then a page arrangement.  You can delete, add, or move the different pages around to your liking.  When it's time to select your photos, the options are either manual, which means dragging each photo into the spot you prefer, or you can select the fast fill option.  The software then decides where the photos go.

My book was titled "Running and Racing"

Here are two of the pages:

And another page:

Once your book is complete, you can save it as a jpeg, or if you have a quality printer, print the pages out on your own.  There are ways to make so many other things, such as D.I.Y. Printables, custom facebook page headers or blog headers, which I want to figure out how to do. 

Well? Are your creative juices flowing? Would you like to win a set of My Memories software of your own?

To enter, let me know how you preserve the important events in your life.  For additional entries, please visit one or all of the following: My Memories on facebook, twitter or their blog., and let me know what you would create.  I will choose a winner on Wednesday November 21st, using 

*Please note, I was provided with a set of software from My Memories for the purpose of this review, my thoughts on the product are my own.
