For the love of yellow

Picture from we heart it

From my landing window i can see a bungalow with bright yellow windows, and although i do not think much of the bungalow itself, It always makes me smile. I wonder who lives there? I think it must be a very jolly old couple.

A fantastic giveaway and a discount for you all!!

My Memories Suite have asked me if I would offer my readers a giveaway of their software.

Look at what I have created in no time at all. I'm amazed at how very easy and fast it was:

This is my first time creating digital scrapbook pages, so if I can do it with this software, so can you. There are lots of different templetes and ideas to try.

The designs would be great for use on your blogs, in photo frames, and to make cards and books for yourself and friends and family.

They have plenty of free pages and kits available on their site too. And the software comes preloaded with lots of templates, papers, textures, embellishments, etc.

I'm liking this software so much that I'm sure I'll share lots more with you in the future. My Memories Suite is an award-winning digital scrapbook software and it's rated #1 by both Amazon and TopTen Reviews.

My Memories has a great blog and you can also follow them on Facebook.

Enter to win the My Memories Suite! 
One of my readers will win the software,  a $40 value!

Cornwall part 3

We had one really really wet day (as you can see below) although actually it was really fun. The boys loved it when the car got soaked going through puddles and we had a cosy cream tea in the afternoon.

Our lovely holiday house had some great reading material and was packed with Coast magazines too, which i loved flicking through of an evening.

The boys enjoyed Crabbing at Port Issac and in Padstow.

And then more cake and cream tea at a gorgeous cafe, Cherry trees. (Heart shape scones!!! doesn't take much to please me)

The best things about the rain? Rainbows and jumping in muddy puddles!

The 4th and final part coming soon
