A give-away and a freebie

Memory Lane Digital, my facebook page, is featured in a give-away, starting today!
To get a chance to win a whole lot, around $1000.00 worth, of photography related stuff, go to the Tiny Feet Photography facebook page here
Or  Tiny Feet Blog
I'm giving away a digital birth announcement I just designed.

If you want to try digital scrapbooking, getting a bunch of freebies is a great way to start!

My inspiration for starting in digital scrapbooking came about in a round about way, as I was looking for a better way to put together a layout for a slideshow. I came across Memory Mixer, which was reviewed by top 10 reviews. (gold award in 2009) Have a look here
I decided to purchase this software, and it kind of took off from there.

There are a lot of "freebies" out there, I have some links on this blog to a few of my favourite sites, and some do offer great freebies.

If you don't want to spend money on software, if you are unsure if this is right for you, there are some great options there too.

1. first of all, you could use "gimp", which is an open source software, with many of the same features as photoshop, but completely free! Gimp

2. Photoshop Elements has a free trial, good for 30 days Elements

3. Story Book Creator, from Creative Memories, also has a free trial: StoryBook

The best thing about these, are they are compatible with both Mac's and Pc's. That's great for me, cause I have a mac, which I love! I don't think I will ever go back to using a PC! ...I don't do "windows"!! ha ha.

There are many more software options, Photoshop Elements seems to be the most widely used, and the most serious digital scrapbookers go for Adobe Photoshop CS5 (or 4, 3...)
Photoshop Elements is much more economical, and powerful enough for just about everyone.
I would think that there are a lot of people using Storybook Creator as well. I have not used either one, so I don't know how they compare.
Which is your favourite, or wish you had tried instead?
I'd love to hear any reviews you have.

I've also got a freebie for you to grab, a sample pack of the digital papers I've been working on.
