My Memories Suite Digital Scrapbooking Software - Review, Coupon and Giveaway

My Memories Suite is a Digital Scrapbooking Software Program, but it is much more than just scrapbooking,  you can make cards, announcements, calendars and more. 
The program itself cost $39.97 and is an instant download (a back up CD can be purchased for an addition fee of about $5).  This program contains several digital paper packs and embellishments.  A larger variety is available for purchase at the My Memories Store, however there is a wide arrange of items available for FREE and for prices as low as 99cents.
The software is fairly easy to navigate, with a little bit of trial and error I was able to figure everything out in a reasonable amount of time.  I made all you see below in about an hour with the FREE items My Memories has available (with exception of the sun on the calendar, that was a purchased as part of the Summer Beach Pack).
There is a wide variety of paper packs available, including some Latter-Day Saint (aka ‘Mormon’) themed packs, I really want to make a book out of the Proclamation on the Family paper pack (available for purchase for $8.99).
Paper packs can also be purchased and used in other scrapbooking software, including Photoshop.


PROS:
More than just scrapbook pages
Can save as JPEG at no additional cost
Can order prints anywhere (Costco has great prices for photo prints, including 12x12 sizes)
Can make your own pages or use quick pages (just add pictures)
Do not need internet connection to use software (only to download purchases)
No uploading photos, the software can read your computers photo albums
Pages sizes other than 12x12 are available
Digital tutorials available for those who may need extra instruction, and are recommended to get the full effect of what the program can do (this could be a con as well, b/c watching tutorials is time consuming).


CONS:
limited selection of FREE packages
Additional purchases needed to add to your paper collection, this is not a one time purchase
when making pages it is not set up in a double spread format (I like to make my pages side by side)
You can’t ‘try before you buy’ the paper packs or the software (and I 'bought' one I didn't really care for)
