A Scrapbook Layout and Ally Pally Pics!

Hi everyone, well no cards to share today but I do have this layout of my little Grace.  This photo is one of my favourites that I have taken of her just lately and it was just a quick snap on my phone.

I have used stash from Scrapagogo Monthly Kit to create this page.   The kits making putting a page together to easy. Instead of turning my craft room upside down looking for stash Scrapagogo  have done all the hard work putting everything together for you.  The part not from the kit are the swirls in the corners of the pages which I stamped and embossed with white embossing powder and the flower which I cut on my e-craft.

I had the most fanastic time yesterday at Ally Pally with my friends Marianne and Lisa and brought lots of lovely crafty goodies. I also got to meet up with my lovely Crafter's Companion DT buddy Jacqui and two lovely blogging buddies Vicky and Heidi

 I didn't think I had that much in my bag but as you can see by the picture below I did have lots of lovely stash!

Thanks for stopping by.

My Memories Suite Giveaway!

Hi everyone I have a very exciting giveway to tell you about today.   I have been lucky enough to have the chance to review some great digital scrapbooking software from My Memories.  I think the software is excellent.  I love digital scrapbooking but I always struggled to do it in photoshop but the My Memories software does all the hardwork for you so you can just get on be creative!  The wonderful scrapbook kits that you can buy from the My Memories shop are also great for card makers as well with all the wonderful papers and embellishments.

Now onto my exciting news which is that I have a great prize for one lucky winner to win the My Memories software, how fantastic is that! To be in with a chance of winning please visit the My Memories store and leave me a comment telling me which is your favourite digtial scrapbooking kit. It's as easy as that!

I also have a great offer for all my readers of a $10 discount on all purchases just quote this code at the checkout: STMMMS1503. 

These are two projects which I made with the My Memories software:

This first layout was made using a premade album so I only had to drag and drop my pictures in and add a title and journalling. This type of album is excellent for holiday pictures when you have so many to scrap!

This second layout is of my gorgeous little niece Anya whoose first Birthday we celebrated on holiday this year.  I made this album using papers and embellishments that come with the software.  This software is so easy to use I made this layout without reading any instructions!  There are some great video tutorials on the My Memories Blog however if you do feel that you would like some help. These will also help you make the most of the software.
