Mark Twain has always been one of my favorite American authors and humorists, but today, he rose clear to the top of my list. Why? Because he was a scrapbooker!
My girls have always loved matching games, especially the Disney Princess Memory game they got for Christmas last year. But now they have something they like even more. On launch day last week, I jumped at the chance to create a Memory card game for my girls. I can’t believe how easy it was.
I just looked through my Heritage Studio photo albums and grabbed a few of my favorite pictures of the kids, their grandparents, and aunts and uncles. I found pictures that would remind us of specific stories from our family’s adventures. I used the new Page Manager feature to make two copies of each card. Then I created a simple title for the backside and added some fun Premier Art. It took me about 15 minutes and I had created my girls’ favorite game.
The game arrived on Wednesday, 8 days after I produced it. I think we’ve already played Family Memory 10 times. I figure by this weekend we’ll probably hit a couple dozen. I don’t know about you, but in my house I’m tired of seeing everything the girls play wrapped with images of Aurora, Belle, and Jasmine. No offense to Disney, but I’d much rather play a game with Whitney, Sophia, and Ruby.
What’s more, the game reminds my kids of some fun memories that they share spontaneously when they play. Memory Game now has a new meaning in our house.
