MY Memories Studio Giveaway

I got the opportunity to try My Memories software. I at first thought I didn't need it because I have photoshop but found that is easier to use and fun. It has a lot of features that I haven't even had time to learn.
This page is a hybrid page. I created the photos of the starfish in My Memories and printed them out. The title was created in My Memories too. It was fun playing with new ways to use photos. The shells were cut with Cricut.
The photos were created in my Memories. I hand cut them out and add Viva Decor to scallops for dimensions.
This last page is a complete digital page using the same photo. I love the look of just coloring part of the photo. I have to say that I really enjoyed the speed of getting a page done. I do like the feel of paper but will be using this for some pages.

I am giving away My Memories Suite to one lucky winner. Just go to My Memories store and put your favorite kit. I will draw a winner Monday morning. Oh, go like My Memories facebook page and they have freebies on Fridays.
