My Memories Suite Review and Giveaway!

Stephanie and Caleb
I was recently contacted to do a review and giveaway on My Memories Suite, which is a digital scrapbooking software. It also does things like cards, calendars and more! I decided to do this review with guest post with my dear friend Stephanie, who is an avid scrapper! She is a proud mom of twins, so she has a lot to scrapbook about! :]
Here's what she had to say:

I have been scrapbooking since I was 17. I LOVE scrapbooking. I know it isn't everyone's forte but there is just something about it that I really enjoy. In recent years I haven't really had the time to scrapbook and my craft room often becomes the "catch all" room instead of the inviting crafting room I always dreamed of. So when Marcia asked me if I would be interested in trying out My Memories Suite I was delighted. I was very pleased to see how easy it really was to use. They have two options on how to make a digital scrapbook, design your own or designer template. In the designer templete they have available to you a ready made template and all you need to do is click the pictures that you want and it fills it in for you. When I used this option just to try it, I had a complete scrapbook in less than 10 minutes. I also really like that you can also embed video and sound into your scrapbook for the option of making a slide show. It really is a nice program for these features. 
Some of the cons are that I wasn't thrilled with the graphics that they have. They seemed a little juvenile to me. But they do have a lot of graphics available to choose from all varying in prices. They even had a lot of free graphics to choose from that you can download. The other con I had was while they made it easy to burn your scrapbook onto a CD/DVD I had wanted to email the completed project to someone and I was unable to do so. This may partially be because I am not very computer literate but when everything else is so easy I wish this feature was just as easy to use. 
While there are some cons I believe that over all My Memories Suite is a nice program and had some features that I really appreciate.
