My Memories - Freebie Friday

I love the pages that I chose for you this week to receive for free from My Memories! Yep, that's right for FREE!  I really enjoyed putting together this two page spread. Remember, you get the quick pages AND the separate elements in this set, so you can tweak it if you feel the need.

The text on the picture on the first picture was done by choosing to use text shape - in this case an outside square - and sizing the text window to fit the frame! You can download the pages here.

My Memories - Hats Off Challenge

I spent the last day digging through scanned photos for pictures with hats. That was a challenge.  My kids loved playing dress-up when they stayed at their Grandma's house. They would raid her stock of knit hats and scarves and as you can see, my older daughter had unusual taste in purses! Here it is!

Challenged by Digital Scrapbooking Day, part two

Whew! You can see by yesterday's post that I was challenged. But wait! There are more! All these challenges took place at the My Memories FB page here. And I didn't tell you that they were also giving prizes - not for the challenges, but for answering questions and stuff. It was lots of fun. Most of the time we were with family or driving, so I didn't catch up until late Sunday.

So this is where I am probably totally out of sequence. There was the "What is your Current Favorite Kit?" challenge. My current favorite kit is "When the Heart Sings." Here is the link to it in the My Memories Design shop. The subjects are my two daughters. They both have gorgeous smiles.

Another challenge was to use the "Fancy Pants" font in any layout. I cheated and used the "Happy Place" quick page - which is a freebie at MyMemories design shop. The subjects are my niece and new nephew-in-law whose wedding we attended on Saturday. I used the font to put their names and the date on the page and added the picture.

Then there was the "Scrap that tune" challenge. It was actually pretty easy.  I used the "Scenes from Summer" kit. That cute couple is my DH and me!

The final scrap was the "I Survived Digital Scrapbooking Day" challenge. The challenge here was to do it with a fun picture of yourself. Instead, I morphed myself into the owl. The owl was cuter before! The kit that I used for this one was "Silly Autumn from Leelou Designs.

There is always something going on over at My Memories FB page. IF you want to see all the wonderful pages made possible with this software, stop in any day and you will see our brag pictures posted on their wall.

Challenged by Digital Scrapbooking Day!

I survived Digital Scrapbooking Day last weekend. Actually, the only reason I did survive it was the wedding of my niece, Marie to her fiance of several years, Ryan. It was a great wedding and I snitched some of the photos from the wedding to use in last weeks challenges, which I finally caught up on!

These challenges are -- well they are challenging. I tried to think outside the box as much as possible. Which taxed my already tired brain. Last night I finally caught up with the challenges and now I will share them with you.

The first was Altered Speed Scrap. For this challenge, you actually got all the directions at once and therefore had a little bit of time to organize your brain. And it was pretty specific about the pictures touching and the number of elements and journaling.

Then there was another speed scrap challenge using just one picture and adding elements to the page.

While DH and I were attending our niece's wedding, there were a couple other challenges, which I finally completed.  One was the Journaling Challenge in which you had to journal about how the photo(s) you chose made you feel. This was hard for me. I really hate journaling.

More Tomorrow!

A Special Card

One of my nieces got married last weekend and I made a card for their wedding in My Memories Suite software. Half my problem when making cards is figuring what to say. I think it worked well.
