Spring Snow Digital Layout

I spent a few minutes using My Memories Suite v4 software to complete a layout tonight while it is still snowing! Our St. Louis area received a record 12+ inches of snow today.   A friend of mine made a snow Easter Bunny which was pretty funny.  My little Sugar wanted no part of the snow once it was belly high on her, but Chloe, on the other hand, loved it.  My kitchen floor is strewn with dog towels and will need a good mopping once the dogs stop coming in encrusted with snow. I was too busy taking photos to clean house today !    ok, whats new?

    The software is very user friendly and I combined My Memories embellishments with some Samantha Walker digital paper I had handy. ( Will identify later)    It was a blank page and then drag and drop some photos, mat and shadow then add the elements and text.
                                    Happy Spring Ya'll !

My Memories Suite first digital scrapbook page

My Memories Suite v4  first project 
    I am now tackling Digital Scrapbooking. Not that I need another hobby, mind you, but I need to justify my hording of great digital items.  I blame it on Samantha Walker.  First I downloaded her designs with the intent of using them in print and cut projects with my Silhouette Cameo.  I see all the creative work done over at Jessica Sprague and I think I could do this as well.  I have Photoshop Elements 10 which I am using to edit photos for clients and myself.  I am strictly self taught, and must admit I have not invested in a class.  It is on my to do list.
     I was contacted by My Memories Suite to test and review their v4 software.  What you see is my first project. They were very generous in providing me with their program and extra spending credit for some basic papers and embellishments.  I decided for my first project I would see how easy it is to use digital products I already own.  I used a Design House Digital line by Audrey Neal called "Bit of Luck".  Can you say Drag and Drop ?  So easy.  And no glue to dry.  It was a bit tricky saving this as a jpeg rather than the album format they default to, but I had only spent 20 minutes playing with the program.  I am sure there are zillions of tutorials out there to check out.....another day.   They also provided me with a coupon offer giveaway for my followers. Cool.  I will set that up in a few days.   
   Shopping the My Memories Suite site is a bit overwhelming. So much to choose from and the prices seem very reasonable.  I will show you the vintage album I'm going to make as a tribute to my mom, using the template album from their site.  So.....Stay tuned !

Any one else familiar with My Memories Suite ?   Opinions?   How many of you dabble in digital scrapbooking ?  What software program do you use?
