A few years ago, my wife was into scrapbooking as a hobby. She had a lot of fun putting together books, but it got to be an expensive and time consuming hobby. Eventually, because of the time and expense involved, she lost interest in it.
Like so many things we do these days, scrapbooking has entered the digital age. Personally, I enjoy just about anything that I can do on a computer. So, when the folks at MyMemories.com contacted me about trying out their digital scrapbooking software, I couldn't wait to give it a test run.
As soon as I loaded the software, I was able to start creating pages for a scrapbook. The user interface is very intuitive. The software comes with several page templates built in. You can also find a lot of additional designs on the webpage, some that are free and others that they charge a small fee to download. You will see some of the pages that I create from things we did this summer when my son was home from school.
In addition to creating digital scrapbook pages, My Memories Suite has a lot of different options for sharing your creations with others. You can create calendars and photo albums that you can give as gifts. There is an option to add music in order to create movies that you can save to your computer and share on YouTube, or you can even burn them to DVD. There is almost no limit to how creative you can get in sharing your memories with your friends and family.
The best part about getting able to try out the My Memories Suite digital scrapbooking software is that they are giving me the opportunity to give away a free copy of the software to one of my readers.
