Review and Giveaway - My Memories Suite Digital Scrapbook Software

I am so excited to be able to offer my first giveaway on Music of the Heart!  My Memories Suite is a digital scrapbook software.  Now, I have to admit that I had never heard of digital scrapbooking before I saw this software.  In fact, my scrapbooking efforts mostly consist of pictures stuck in photo albums, or boxes, or sitting in computer files categorized by upload date.  But I think that's about to change.  Using this software, I was able to use the pictures stored on my computer to create a beautiful Fall album!  For this project, I started with one of the provided templates.  I added the pictures, text, music and embellishments (like the flowers).  It was very easy to remove or add page elements, and to re-size or move around the things that were already there.  Here are the pages:
For this one, I just added the pictures.  Everything else was already there.

I added the picture text, and flower, made the picture larger, and put it behind the squares.

I added the text, picture, and flower.

Text, picture and flower again.

Added text, pictures and flower, plus changed out a square for the apple, and another one for the chicken picture.

This one I really rearranged.  I added the pictures, text, and leaves, and moved things around because I wanted  it to be  less structured-looking.
My next project was a baby shower invitation - I started with a blank page, and added things layer by layer.  Everything for this invitation was found on the original website.  I have previously used Microsoft Word to create things like flyers and invitations, but this came out so pretty, I think I'll be using it much more often!

I've had this software almost two weeks, and have already received several e-mails with more things to try.  Last weekend, I was even able to download more background papers for free!  The website includes a store, where you can buy kits of papers and templates.  They are constantly adding new products, including seasonal items.  

There are several options to share your creations.  You can print your pages at home, or arrange them as a movie or interactive scrapbook on a DVD.  You can also have your album professionally printed, or made into a calendar.  I arranged the pages I posted here as a video, with music by my college piano teacher, Nanette Kaplan Solomon, playing a piece called "Sunburst," written by Stepfania De Kenessey.  It came out very pretty.

So, here's the great news - One of you can actually win this software for free!  My Memories was generous enough to provide me with a copy to review and a second copy to give away.  So, here are the rules.
