My first Digi Scrapbook Page and a GIVEAWAY

Hi, how's things?

This is a long post but if you make it to the end there is a fabulous giveaway !!
I don't know about where you are, but here in Queensland Australia we are on countdown to the end of our school year. My boys have exactly 20 more school days to go, not that any ones counting, LOL.

Oh the bliss, six weeks of freedom to sleep in, lounge around in our Jim Jams all morning and basically just go with the flow.

One thing I am planning on doing during these upcoming holidays is to spend a little time experimenting with a new Digital Scrapbooking Software I have come across. 

Now even though when I first ventured in to paper crafting a couple of years ago, the idea was that I was going to make some scrapbook albums (paper ones) and so far to date I have made the grand total of ....

O pages

Nil, None, Nada, not a single one, lol. I guess it is because I could never quite figure out what theme I wanted or find just the right embellishments etc and truth be told I am an instant gratification kind of girl which is why card making became my thing.

This is why I was so excited to come across this fabulous Digital Scrapbooking software from My Memories.

I mean take a look at what I was able to put together in half an hour on my very first attempt!!

I am thrilled with this!!

It was so easy to use. There are hundreds of page layout templates, embellishments and background papers.
The easy-to-use features for creating or editing albums from templates or from scratch make this software an absolute breeze to use. And it is not just limited to scrapbook pages either, you can create cards,invitations, calendars, photo books etc, you are only limited by your imagination.

Loads of templates to get you started


even free ones!!

Me being a jump right in at the deep end kind of girl (well, not really as I can't swim properly but you know what I mean) I decided that I didn't want to use a page layout template, rather I would just go right ahead and create something from scratch.

It really was so very simple to use and I could of kept playing and creating way in to the wee small hours.
