Book review of Daisy by Josi Kilpack

I thoroughly enjoyed reading “Daisy” by Josi Kilpack which is book 2 of the Newport Ladies Book Club. I actually found it so enjoyable and relatable that I stayed up late just to be able to finish the book in one night.
This book would be considered Christian Fiction but is not preachy or unrealistic in any way.
I like that some of the same scenes in the first book “Olivia” were also in the book “Daisy” but obviously from another characters perspective. Because the book “Daisy” takes place during the same time span as the first book “Olivia”, I don’t think it would matter what order you reads these books, or if you even read all the books in the series. Of course, I don’t plan on missing any of the books in this series! :)
I laughed and cried during the first book, and this second book didn’t disappoint.  I wish I could tell you more character specifics about book 2-Daisy, but I don't want to spoil it for you so I guess you will just have to read it on your own!! :-)
I absolutely can’t wait to read book 3!! If you want to find out more about this series, go to 
If you scroll down to my blog in March, you can read my book review of the first book, Olivia.
Let me know what you think of this book after you read it.

Birthday GIVEAWAY-details below!!

How cute is this scrapbook birthday kit? It's brand new and can be found here: 

So, this year I'm turning the big 3-0 and I thought it would be fun to do a giveaway!! 
Who doesn't like freebies??!! 
I discovered MyMemories Digital Scrapbooking software last year and absolutely fell in love with it!! I had never done digital scrapbooking before and I was amazed how fast and easy to was to learn this software!! They have a great blog, store and facebook page to help with any questions and with learning how to use the program. 
Even if you don't scrapbook, you can still use this software! I have used it to make cards, signs, flyers & other random things. What I also love about this software is once you create a project or scrapbook page,  you can print it off your computer or upload it to any printing site (cvs, walgreens, shuttefly, snapfish etc.) that you want to use!! You are not limited to just using and printing products from MyMemories. I am always getting deals from Shutterfly so I like to use them the most! 

Okay-enough chit chat! Here are the details on how to win this program!! :-)

MMS Freebie thru Monday May 21st!

This freebie is MyMemories Suite Compatible.
What does that mean??? It means that you can now load the freebies directly into your MyMemories Suite Software, and then completely customize them with any paper and embellishments that you have. 
Don't have MyMemories digital software?

Use my special code: STMMMS18853 to save $10 off the software!
and please go to for more info about this incredible software program.

If you can't purchase it at this time, you can still download the sample project and the elements, but you will not be able to customize their project.

 These photoboxes make great gifts for Fathers Day, Teachers, Mothers-anyone!  You can add pictures of families, individuals, or even special things into the frames!!!

All you have to do is download and add photos, print, fold at the fold lines, and glue!! It's as easy as that!


Photobox Tutorial
Using MyMemories Software to Customize your Flower Card

  1. Download template file and install it into your software
  2. Using MyMemories Suite, choose Create Album From Designer Template and find your project
  3. Now you can add pictures, print and enjoy the provided template, or customize it with your own papers and embellishments.

You can right-click on the white guide and lock it in place to keep it from moving while you are working. Make sure this is the top layer of your project before printing.

Instead of adding the paper as a background paper, you can add it as an embellishment so that you can move the paper around. This is especially useful when using papers with stripes or circles, so you can decide which part of the paper you want to use.

Once it is added as an embellishment, you can now select the paper and move it into the position you want it. 

Just SAVE and PRINT on cardstock!

Again, don't forget to use my special code: STMMMS18853 to save $10 off the software! go to for more info about this incredible software program.
