Review & Giveaway: My Memory Suite

*All of the graphics in this post were created using the My Memory Suite software, with the exception of the My Memory Suite logo.*

I received this product in exchange for an honest review.  I was not compensated in any way and all opinions are 100% my own.



I was super excited when I received the invite to try out the My Memory Suite software.  I wasn't sure at first if I wanted to accept.  I had wanted something like this for quite a while, but was a little intimidated by it.  After I agreed, I received my information and promptly downloaded the software.  It was quick and easy .

When I first started using the program, I was a little confused.  I wasn't really sure how to use everything or how to make graphics and pages and such.  After a quick little trip to the websites forums, I was back on track and it took me no time to figure out how to use everything.  It was so easy that it felt like I had been using it forever!

I'm sure when you look at the website, you'll think that My Memory Suite is only a digital scrapbooking software.  That's not true at all!  You can create all kinds of things!  If you're a blogger, store owner, website designer or anything else that needs to look good for the public, you can create headers, backgrounds, button, banners and more!  I created this entire layout for Rainy Days and Pajamas using My Memory Suite.

Overall, I've really enjoyed using this product and I like it a lot.  I've used it almost every day since I downloaded it and make all of my graphics with it.  It makes it extremely easy to create layouts and graphics for my blog (before My Memory Suite, I always used layouts created by others).

I even got my very own code for you guys!
Use this code and receive $10 off your purchase of the My Memories Suite software.
Using this code, you'll also get $10 off your order in the digital scrapbooking shop.
That's a $20 value!

USE CODE: STMMMS15730




One winner will get their own copy of the My Memory Suite Software!

Seduce by Missy Johnson
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:
Twenty-five year old Jack Falcon doesn’t do relationships, and why would he when he has woman after woman literally throwing themselves at him? For Jack, life is perfect just the way it is. He works hard and he plays harder.
Jack’s life changes when he meets Belle. Unlike any woman he’s ever met, there is something about this girl that makes him unable to keep away, something beyond the youthful beauty and her innocent spirit. Belle is strong and independent, a big leap from the usual brainless chicks he tends to attract.
Jack begins a dangerous game. He is determined to seduce Belle, and without realizing it, his feelings for her develop beyond anything he has ever felt before. Things become complicated when he learns there are good reasons as to why he should stay the hell away from her.
How can you stay away from someone you want to spend every waking minute with? And what do you do when you know eventually you will destroy that person?
As their feelings for each other deepen, Jack struggles with his own internal demons which threaten to rip them apart. Jack is torn between following his heart and listening to his head, which keeps telling him he is not good enough for her. She deserves better than what he can give her.
How far will he push before they both fall over the edge?
