My New Love... and a Giveaway!

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I am so excited to share with you a little something that has captured my heart over the last few weeks.

Now I am a card making kind of gal, but I have always loved visiting different scrappy blogs, and secretly wishing I could "do that" with a 12x12 piece of paper.  I even have magazine clippings of scrapbook pages that I hope to create one day. Scrapbooking scares me a little... well a lot! I spend hours on one layout.

Well... Liz from My Memories Suite made my day when she contacted me last month and invited me to try out this super amazing digital scrapbooking software!

I was a little scared of that too. I LOVE all things techie, but I was concerned that this would be a bit much to learn. I went through the tutorials available HERE and immediately downloaded the digital scrapbook software and got started. MY OH MY! This is so easy and fun! While My Memories Suite offers many pre-made layouts to get you started, I opted to create all the layouts you see below from scratch. I just had to try all the different features. I literally created the basic layouts in minutes. You know all those magazines I have been saving... well I went to those for inspiration!
Oh, and while I haven't had a chance to try it yet, you can also create calendars with your scrapbook pages! I am thinking Christmas presents.

A little side note:
I couldn't wait for this blog post to go up so that I could share this last layout with you! Today is my 10th wedding anniversary! 10 amazing years full of love and blessings!

Now for the giveaway part!
