It's Giveaway Time!!

That's right! It is time for a giveaway, and just in time for Christmas!

About two weeks ago I received an email from MyMemories to review their digital scrapbooking software, called MyMemories Suite v3. I was really excited about this because of two reasons. The first reason is that I have never ever been contacted to do a review, so I thought it was pretty cool that someone asked me to do one. The second reason is that I have been wanting something like this so that I can use it to do designs on my blog. I know that most people use some sort of digital scrapbooking software for this, so I have been wanting to get my hands on it.

I went ahead and downloaded the software from the MyMemories website, which was super easy by the way. It walks you right through it and barely took any time at all. Within minutes, the software was up and running. At first, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. Did I want to play in the already pre-made scrap booking templates? Or did I want to try my hand at doing something custom? I went for the custom. Little did I know that this software was going to be a blessing in disguise!

A while back I found this really cute idea on Pinterest for table numbers. Each table number was a year and with that year would be a picture of the bride and groom taken in that year. I really liked it a lot better than our original table number idea so, I have been trying to figure out how I was going to design these table numbers because I don't have access to photoshop or anything fun like that. Well, I figured what the heck, let's try and design the table numbers and see how it goes. The software allows you to choose the size and orientation of your pages and this came in real handy for this project. I picked a 4x6 page with a horizontal orientation. I then proceeded to pick out a background paper, layout my photo boxes and add text and embellishments.

The nice thing about this software is that it walks you through a lot of things. There are pop up boxes that walk you through different features of the program and it is really nice since you really are just trying to figure everything out at first. With the help of these boxes and some playing around, I was able to create these table numbers.

Obviously these are not the right pictures for this year.

I love how they turned out, so much that we are actually going to use these. We are going to print them as 4X6 photo's and they will be placed on each table. There may be a few more tweaks to them, but for the most part this is what they will look like. Again, this software was a blessing in disguise, because without it, I don't know how we would have done this!

I also messed around with table menu's and was able to create this menu. We still aren't sure if we are going to do the menu's but they are designed and ready to go if we decide to do them thanks to this program.

I seriously love this software. There are so many things that you can do with it and the possibilities just seem endless. You can also go on the MyMemories website and look through their scrapbooking kits. You can buy them(or they even have some free ones)and download them straight into your software. I can't wait to keep playing with it and eventually figure out how to create a header and other things for this blog. It might even come in handy once we have our wedding pictures back to make an album for ourselves.

Now onto the best part! I have a copy of this software to giveaway to one of my amazing readers!
