This Blogger Needs Rest

Hello there :) Well I'm back with a quick post again. I just wanted to stop by and let you know that my promised post is coming, but I'm a bit out of it right now. I've been so sick with a cold/sinus infection over the past several days, so I'm not able to get here to blog like I want to. I'm starting to feel a little bit better today, but I'm not all the way back to health. Since I've been sick it's tough to be on the computer for any length of time, because it makes my eyes hurt. I know that it's my body telling me to take it easy for once. So I'm doing my best to obey ;-)

The photo above is a view of where I've been and where I'm heading back to in a moment. I hope that you'll come back to check out my baking post that I promised.

Have a great day and enjoy whatever you're doing!

Quickie Posts and Blue Food

Hello there! This will be a mini post, but I just wanted to check in and say hi!!! :) I'll be back with a baking post, later this week. I'll give you a hint...it's very blue (my favorite color).

Right now I'm in the thick of an assignment for school, so my little typing hands are needed elsewhere right now ;-) Wish me luck!

Have a great day and I'll be back to talk about blue food on Thursday!

My Memories Suite Giveaway

Hello all! I hope that everyone’s 2012 is getting off to an amazing start! :-) I have some good news to share and it’s a bit of a thank you to you all for visiting me here at my blog.

I was contacted by the good people at My Memories, the makers of this great digital scrapbook software and I was thrilled. They asked if I’d like to hold a giveaway of their My Memories Suite software package worth $40! And of course I said yes!

I love scrapbooking and anything creative, so this software is right up my alley. I’ve been scrapbooking off and on over the years in the traditional way and it has been great, but digital scrapbooking is my new favourite hobby ;-)

Digital scrapbooking with My Memories is a breeze and it’s so easy to arrange the photos on your page and add all of the embellishments you want. You simply drop your photos into the boxes on the pre-designed templates, or you can create your own layouts. In the My Memories Suite, you are provided a wide array of embellishments, fonts, background papers, shapes, multimedia options, etc. And I will say it again; the software is very easy to use. I love it!

Here is a quick tongue in cheek album that I put together about my love of cake baking. I did this in a short time and it was so fun to give it a go.

Want to win this cool prize?
