Hi Everyone!
Happy Veterans Day! Today I wanted to share with you some Digital Scrapbooking I've done. Granted I'm a real newbie (1st time ever), I've always been intimidated by it & thought that they just stayed on your computer & you weren't able to use a real album, drrr all you have to do is print it! Well the nice people from "My Memories Suite" asked if I would like to try their Scrapbooking Software for free & give one away on my blog as well! Of course I said yes! Score for me & score for one of my followers. I will explain more about the give away a little later down in the post.

I watched a little video & just got to playing, it was pretty easy, granted I have a lot to learn, but they have lots of videos, etc to help you. So for my first project I decided to do a 2 pg layout, that is usually how I scrapbook, I like the pages to coordinate. I'm sure your going to be surprised that I didn't do a layout of the Gilbster, but I was looking through the pictures on my computer & found these 2 of Brandon that I loved. It's vary rare that I get a normal shot of him just smiling, usually he's making all kinds of goofy faces. Don't get me wrong, I like those as well, but when you get 2 smiling out of 50 goofy, you can understand what I mean. Even though he's a goofball he is almost 16, so I did ask his permission before posting these. :D He was totally fine with it. He & my hubby are my biggest fans-oh & Gilby of course. It's surprising to me how interested & encouraging he (Brandon) is when it comes to my crafts & blog, he's my sweet little Bubbaloo & I love him!!! (Yeah, he may not like that part). LOL
I used one of the free templates that My Memories has (they have a lot & they also have a store where you can purchase others for a very reasonable price). I did change it some some of the colors & textures to match the pictures better. It's soo cool, they have different textures of paper, embellishments, etc, I had no idea you could do all that with digital scrapbooking! 
So, here are the 2 pgs I started out with 
(for some reason I can't get them side by side)

and here they are after I got to changing the colors & added some texture
(BTW, there are more coordinating pages that go in this pack)

What do you think...pretty cool huh???!!! I really like how it turned out & it was easy peasy!!!

So, this is the dealio for the giveaway, all you have to do is go to their website My take a look around then come back here & tell me out of all the themes, which one you would use the most, along with way to reach you. Of course Gilby & I would love for you to follow & or subscribe, but that's up to you we don't like to pressure you into following us. That's it, easy peasy once again!!! I'm going to keep this open for a week, so you have until Friday 11/18 11:59pm (PST) to enter. I will announce the winner either Saturday or Sunday.
BUT wait...there's I said before the people over at My Memories Suite are very nice & don't want to leave anyone out, so they are offering $10 discount off the purchase of the My Memories Suite Scrapbook software and a $10 coupon for the My store - $20 value!!! All you have to do is use the code in the upper right hand corner of my blog. There's no time limit on that either, so if you want to think about it & then decide you want to try it out, all you have to do is come back here to my blog & get that code! Again, easy peasy!!! "Ok, Wendy enough with the easy peasy...we get it", that's what you're thinking isn't it??? :D
