I've Busy and a Giveaway!

I was recently contacted by Liz at My Memories Scrapbooking asking if I would be interested in hosting a giveaway of their My Memories Suite Scrapbook software.  Well I gotta tell you...I'm not a scrapbooker....I'm a quilter.  But I thought I would give it a try.


You know how much Terry and I love to go on nature walks.  So I decided to work on pictures from our walks at our favorite park...Kensington Metro Park.  It was sooooo easy.  There are so many different background pages, layouts, and embellishments to choose from.  I'm a minimalist so I don't add a lot of embellishments but I love how you can add text.


Since I am a quilter I thought what a great way to keep a photo and information of my quilts.

So if you are interested in receiving free software from My Memories, all you have to do is... Leave me a comment letting me know that you are a follower and want to be entered into the giveaway.  It's that easy.  I will be picking the lucky winner on Saturday, November 26, 2011.

Every few days I will post more pictures of what I'm working on.

We've been traveling.  Last week we went to the Upper Peninsula to visit my son Pat, his wife Courtney and my granddaughter, Ashley.   The weather was beautiful.  We walked around without jackets...it was wonderful.

It is an 8 hour drive to get to Pat's.  We stopped along Lake Superior as the sun was setting.  It was beautiful.

The next day we went to Presque Isle to go walking.


We ran into this fellow when we turned a corner on our walk.


I was so close I could have touched him.  I guess they are used to people.  It is so beautiful here.


It almost makes you feel that you are on the East Coast.

But the real reason we went was to watch my Granddaughter play hockey.    Now they live in Marquette and they had 2 games in Mackinaw.  That is a 3 hour trip one way.  We got up at 6:00am Saturday morning to meet a bus at 7:30 am.  Ah what a wonderful trip..  Nothing like being on a bus with 14 giggling, screaming, laughing and sugar crazed 9, 10, and 11 year old girls.  I wish I had there energy.

They lost their first game.  We had a couple of hours in between game so we had a picnic lunch by the Mackinaw Bridge.  My son got this picture of the team.


You couldn't have asked for a better day.  Ashley is 4th from the left.  Unfortunately they lost the 2nd game to but it was an edge of the seat kind of game.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  It is sunny here although it is cold (38).

Wishing you a quilty day....

Hugs, Cathy

What a great idea to do a scrapbook of the quilts you've made along with the story behind it!

I'm not a scrapbooker either but this... I would definitely do!

Thanks for the chance at the give-away, Cathy! I am a follower!

It's my guess that the software is Windows only, and I am a Mac user. But I love your scenery photos--especially sunset on Lake Superior!
