I've been working on some upcoming Halloween projects for a couple of blog hops I am participating in.

This circle digi stamp would look great used with a circle punch and an embellishment in the center. Simply right click then left click on "Save picture as". Select your preferred file location then click "Save".

My Memories Suite Software Review and Giveaway...


I was recently asked to review the My Memories Suite software. I must say that I was very sceptical at first, simply because I have had some not-so-great experiences with scrapbooking software in the past. I do, however, love hybrid scrapbooking and creating photo gifts for my family. After trying this software, I have to say that it is pretty awesome. It is super easy to use. Also, the My Memories team have put some amazing digital kits together and they are priced so that even I can afford them. They also have FREEBIES!!! Anyone who knows me is very aware that I love a good freebie. I would definitely recommend this software to all my digi scrappers, hybrid scrappers and all others who love to create photo gifts. I definitely wouldn't promote this software if it was something that I wouldn't use myself. Wanna see my first project made using the My Memories Suite software???? Of course you do...


I used the "I'm Falling for You", "Funky Fall" and the "Walk in Splendor" collections. This image could be used as a scrapbooking layout but I've decided not to do that. I exported it to a JPG image and have printed it out on 5x7 photo paper and I am going to frame it as a gift for my mother who lives out of state. Now, all I have to do is find the perfect frame!! That will be my next mission!

Every year at Christmas I give my In-Laws a photo book of my kids. (Usually ends with my MIL crying happy tears!). With this software I can create my own designs with personalized elements of my own instead of trying to choose premade page layouts from those online design centers. They hardly ever turn out that great when you have to choose from a limited source. This software will also allow me to work on one page at a time throughout the year instead of rushing to get their entire photo book done just before Christmas. For me, this convenience alone is worth the purchase of this software.

I know you want more info, so please check out this video...
