Sorry no DT card from me this week, the week has just flown by and not had chance to make a card....sorry again girls, really should have been more organised and had it ready last week.
My teamies have made some gorgeous cards, pop over for some fab inspiration.

************************************************************************

I have had a lovely week with my hubby and children all on hols.
We have been busy decorating Katies bedroom, now finished and she is a very happy bunny....so clean and tidy, wonder how long that will last lol...
We were treated to a fab day out at Legoland Windsor , just a shame we picked a day when thousands of other people decided to go too. We managed to get on 4 rides which Ben and Katie thought were really cool and such good fun, not sure the getting totally wet one as we left the park was such a good idea as it took 1hr 30 mins (sat in car, soaking wet)  just to get out the car park 
The lego mini-land was amazing and we all really enjoyed this part, took lots of photos.
Here are just a few to share with you....everything is made out of Lego.

London

Buckingham Palace

Brighton Pier

Holland

The heads in the rock are made out of Lego


Yesterday we visited Fort Nelson which looks over Portmouth...stunning views.
We had a picnic in the sunshine, been lucky this week with the weather.We spent a very interesting and fun 2 hours looking around the Fort. we were really surprised at how much there was to look at, a really fabulous museum and best bit it's free to get in.















Hope I haven't bored you too much with my photos...enjoy the weekend.

My Memories Suite Give-away....




What a lovely surprise I had to receive a email from Liz who works for  My Memories asking me if I would like to review the My Memories Suite digital scrapbooking software and host a giveaway.....To be honest I was a little nervous about staying yes as I had never used any digital software before, but it's something I have wanted to try for a while now, but just not got around too.
I love my traditional scrapbooks but find them very bulky with all the embellishments I like to add, so thought why not say yes and give it a go and now so pleased I did. 

I was very lucky to be sent the My Memories Suite software, which was very easy to download, no problems at all. My first impressions were WOW! so much to look at and learn, and pleasantly surprised at how much is already there for you to start playing around with, without having to buy more straight away. I managed to pick up the basics quickly. There are lots of tutorials and support on the My Memories website, which are very helpful, these will be of great help to me as I learn more about the software.The possibilities are endless and can see me spending many hours of fun getting all our photos into albums, my only problem will be choosing which ones from all the gorgeous and fabulous kits available at  My Memories....there is so many to choose from and something to suit everyone and type of project.....check them out!


Here are a few of my first pages to share with you.
