Things I'm loving Friday ♥


I'm loving Google Picasa 3 and how I've just discovered how easy it is to do photo collages and digital scrapbooking with it!

Here's my very collage done with it. A few snaps from our last visit to Edinburgh Castle, Oct 2007.

Little David, now 5, was just 23 months old back then. The boys liked the fact that the sign he is sitting by said 'David's Tower'. 

Despite the fact that the boys' school is within walking distance of the castle, this was the last time we actually visited it, partly due to the cost! James has been to visit it quite a few times with his class recently though, because they have been studying the history of the Great Hall. He wants to take us all and be our personal tour guide so look out for some more photos in the not too distant future.


  1. I love castles!! Loving your collage too - have a wonderful weekend!!

  2. I've seen lots of collages lately and have wondered how they were made. Thanks for sharing the secret.

    Your castle pictures are wonderful. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Picasa is great!! I have so much fun with it; and although I know other programs (like Photoshop) are far superior, I'm quite content for now with what I can do with Picasa. And the fact that it's free? Even better. :)

    Visiting a castle sounds positively delightful. Wouldn't my boys have a grand time traipsing through one?! :)

    I love reading about your David, by the way. :)

  4. Been out of commission for the last week, and am just now enjoying a peaceful blog catch up moment. Enjoyed your Valentines idea and your cake looks scrumpscious. The "Things I'm Lovin Friday"is a fun post. I would love to participate if I can get my camera up and working again. Hope your Valentines Days is delightful, romantic, cozy and sweet.
    Much Love,
