Meet this week's *Featured Designer* Barb from *Albums to Remember*!

Welcome and Happy Monday everyone!  You know what Monday at the MyMemories blog means...? Time to introduce - or rather RE-introduce another Fabulous MyMemories Designer!  This week, it's one of our favorites, Barb from *Albums to Remember*!

Here's a few fun things that Barb wants you to know about her:

Recently someone asked me why I design. I have several reasons. I really enjoy helping people see that digital scrapbooking does not have to be overwhelming. Getting your photos off your hard drive and into a book can be quick and enjoyable.  The idea to start designing was pretty much on a whim. It was a mixture of not finding themes or kit elements I needed, followed by seeing an ad for a designer contest so I decided to give it a try. Seeing as I had never designed before I only made it to round 3 but the seed was planted and I have grown into a full time designers from there.  It has taken time to learn the programs and at times can get challenging but it is worth it when a kit comes together the way you want it to!

My goal is to help you get your photos off your hard drives and into albums. I hope to provide you with tips and tricks (check out the tutorial section on my website as well as my blog) to help you create fun and fabulous pages for you and your family to enjoy. I want to make completing your albums easier and quicker. I also enjoy creating kits with hard to find themes. If you ever have an idea for a kit please let me know. I keep a list and when inspiration hits I pick a topic and create the kit.

FIND Barb everywhere, but be SURE to check out her blog - she is giving away a FREE copy of MyMemories V3 software on her blog - you do NOT want to miss that!

Oh, Barb! How do I love your designs? Let me count the ways...nevermind there are just way too many to count. Probably what I use (can't live without) the most are your amazing page builders. I rarely do a page without one any more. I love that I can tweak them and make them suit my needs at the moment. Thanks for the chance to win!

I really like your page builder sampler. Thanks for making it free! If I won a credit to your shop I'd definitely get more page builders. I like to scrap fast. :)

I am obsessed with Barb's page builders and All in a Day and Bliss kits! I don't think I would still be doing my P52 if it weren't for Barb! Thanks Barb!

Barb, congratulations on being Designer of the Week. I'm with Rachel M on this... she said, "How do I love your designs? Let me count the ways..." lol. It's true. I love and use the various 'All in a Day' and 'Bliss' kits, 'Family & Friends', 'This N That', and so many more, 'All Boy Pack, 'Play Day Pack', ... I hate to leave any out, but the list is long ... just love them all. 'Solve a Mystery' will always have a special place in my heart :) Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

I absolutely love all your work. You make scrapbooking so easy. I love your kits are filled with embellishments and you use so much color. I love all the bliss line. Thank you. The pagebuilders are fabulous too.

I love your Page Builder. It is so easy to make great layouts. I am working on some pages using your Page Builder now. Hopefully by the end of the week I will post a review about it on my blog.

You are a talented designer, Barb!
