I just want to draw people's attention to some changes I have made. Firstly, I have changed my header, as some of you have already noticed. I just like this picture of my bookshelf and I'm hoping to make a matching button and so on - to add a little colour.
Secondly, I removed the disclaimer "I do not earn any money from this blog". I haven't decided to make a big deal about making money from it, because it is still really a learning tool and for the fun of sharing. However, I have been made a couple of offers and I need to be honest with my readers that I may receive remuneration - although it is really just to cover a few expenses such as running competitions, so I can offer fun things from time to time.
I will still always give my honest opinion. I would not endorse something I wouldn't use or buy myself.
Cheers & hugs

Hello Good People,
Well while I was away from blogging a lot happened in the books & crafts area - even though I spent much of my time sleeping or playing games - life goes on without you doesn't it? The delightful people at My Memories offered me a free download of their scrapbook software to try so I could tell you all about it. But wait, there's more - one of my lucky readers will receive their own copy to have and keep. How cool is that?
I was really excited about this. I have been scrapbooking since I could hold a pair of scissors, and I remember many people were surprised when they saw our wedding album full of embellishments about 20 years ago. I went for a class with my sister's neighbour and I read quite a few books - but I could never get all the rules straight in my head - so I just go for it and I'm probably breaking all the design rules. But I have ONE rule for all my crafting - it has to be fun. So with My Memories Suite, I just looked around at what I liked. It was very easy to use and there is a nice variety of backgrounds and embellishments. Here is one I did of our wedding (weren't we so young and cute?).
There are also templates designs you can use :
Furthermore, it can be used to create banners, advertising flyers, altered art - virtually any kind of design material.
