I recently started using My Memories digital scrapbooking software. It's nice to be able to make multiple layouts without running out of supplies or messing things up if I cut something wrong.

You can do many things with My Memories - create scrapbooking layouts (of course), calendars, cards, and I've even seen someone who is using it to create layouts of her favorite recipes, with photos of the actual food.

When you use digital scrapbooking software, you can recreate your layout as many times as you like. You can share with as many people as you like, without using up your precious hoard of scrapbooking materials. (Yes, I hoard mine.) And if you think it's not personal enough this way, start the layout on your computer, print it out and add physical embellishments for the final touch.

But you don't have to add physical embellishments, because embellishments are included. And what's nice here is that they are sizeable, so you can have the same embellishment in many different sizes, and even colors.

This layout uses a background paper plus the ornament embellishment and three stars at the bottom, the family memories embellishment and text and photo. I colored the text two different colors to highlight Amanda's childhood wish list.

I'm having a giveaway - one person will get a copy of My Memories Suite v3 software - it's a download, so you have to be able to access the Internet on the computer you will use the software on. (System requirements) I run it on an eMachine with 1 G of RAM and it runs pretty fair, as long as I am not running a lot of other stuff at the time, although I have run it at the same time as Firefox. Probably not fair to my computer, which I bought refurbished last year.

Anyway, here's the giveaway. If you don't see the Rafflecopter form right away, give it a minute to load. There is one mandatory entry - you must "like" My Memories on Facebook. There are two ways to earn 5 entries each, both of which you visit the sponsor ( and leave a comment on the blog post with the name of your favorite product or use the Rafflecopter entry form and enter the name of your favorite product in that form (third text box). You can do the 5-entry Rafflecopter entry or the tweet once per day, all other entries are one-time only.

Contest starts at 12:01 a.m. EST Dec. 1 (11:01 p.m. Nov. 30).
