Giveaway: My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Software (CLOSED)

I am officially in 10K training mode!  My brothers and sister-in-law are joining me in running the Bolder Boulder 10K in Colorado over Memorial Day.  I found this great training schedule online, but I have a hard time remembering what week is when in real life.  To combat my short-term memory loss, also known as "Mommy Brain", I created this calendar page to keep me on track.  So far, so good.

So how did I make it?  I am usually a Photoshop girl, but I was recently contacted by My Memories about reviewing their digital scrapbooking software.  Now, I am not much of a real-life scrapbooker, but I do love doing graphic design, so I agreed to give the software a spin and see what I could do with it. 
 What I was impressed with about this software:
  • Quick and easy to use
  • I can use all the fun fonts I already have installed on my computer
  • There are lots of free kits for download and a wide variety of other kits
  • I can make my project as customized as I want, or just use a template and spend hardly any time on it at all
  • There are many different book sizes
  • I can print at home or send it somewhere else
  • I am able use any other digital scrapbooking images you already have or free downloads from other sites
  • Everything is organized and saved into albums instead of single files
As with any new software, it can take a little bit of getting used to how different aspects of the program operate.  Finding downloaded and installed files was a challenge for me at first.  For example, quick pages show up as embellishments, instead of background paper like I thought.  Here's a quick tip to help you find downloaded files:  When the downloads are installing, look at the address that it saves them to and it will tell you where to find it.

I honestly had so much fun playing with My Memories!  It was great to be able to print my training schedule right out on my printer and have it ready to go.  I think that I might actually start doing digital scrapbooking after playing with this.
