Happy 80th Mum

Today would have been Mum’s 80th Birthday.

If you are fairly new to my blog my Mum was diagnosed with Dementia and Parkinsons Disease back in September of 2010.  She moved into a local nursing home, Lovely Banks, in November 2010 as Dad just couldnt give her the care she required and sadly she passed away in July 2011.

I made this digital layout using My Digital Studio using a photo my brother David took of Mum and Dad the day she moved into Lovely Banks.

My Project 11-001

Mum loved blue so all I had to do was to find a blue Background Paper and go from there.  This was actually from a template and I just changed the background paper, and added the flourish stamps and played around with the text.

I am really loving the My Digital Studio program for the ease of making lovely layouts like this but its not limited to scrapbooking – you can also use it to create …

  • Cards
  • Notepaper
  • Tags
  • Photobooks
  • Diary
  • Perpetual Calendars
  • Annual Calendars
  • Recipe Books
  • Business Cards
  • Flyers
  • Advertisements (just like the one over on the right for My Digital Studio that I created last night)
  • Scrapbooks
  • Invitations for Birthdays, Baby Shower, Shower Tea or even just to invite some friends out for coffee or lunch!

It also gives you the option to print at home on your own printer or to send or save the file the a flash drive or memory card and take it to your favourite printer.

Want to just try the program out?  no problems – download the free trial

So you’ve played with the trial and love it and want more? no problems download the full copy for just $24.95!! Yep its just $24.95 – bargain!

Mum and Dad always had a strong love for each other – even during the rough times their love was still strong and set a wonderful example not only for us kids but to all they knew.

Mum I pray you are having a wonderful birthday in Heaven with that new body and all our friends who are now there with you and know you will forever be living in our hearts till we meet again xx
