Hello Friends!

I am sorry I didn't have this up earlier this AM. My internet was out all morning and I couldn't get it posted! Weird!

This weeks challenge is to use MDS Content that will be retiring with this Catalog. I think one of my favorite kits is the Noteworthy kit, so that is the one I decided to go with.

Here is my page:

I love the bright summery colors of the patterned paper against the neutral DSP. And I also love that the focus stays on the photo, and that embellishments are kept at a minimum.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I had foot surgery on Monday. I am in a large cast and will be non weight bearing for 6 weeks. Its hard to get into my stamp room, but not so hard to work on MDS. Love that I can work on my scrapbooking while i recuperate!

Please stop by and visit the other gals on the blog hop! Have a great weekend!

Here we are, Friday again! Yahoo!

This weeks challenge is for a vacation or a trip. I am looking forward to summer to make some new memories to scrapbook. But in the mean time, I was going over some old pictures, and came across pictures of when we took Emily to NYC for the first time. Being in CT. we can take the train or drive in pretty quickly. We head in several times a year. But when Emily was 8 we took her for along for the first time. Of course we did all the touristy things, but it was a super fun day.

Here is my page:

I love the color picker feature in MDS. We didn't have just the right shade of pink that I needed, so I used the color picker and selected the color from Emily's sweatshirt. Viola! Perfect match!

I am thinking of taking next Friday off, as I am having surgery on my foot Monday. If I feel well enough I will probably participate, but we will see how it goes, and how many pain meds I am taking (LOL).

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to visit all the other fabulous designers on the blog hop and have a super weekend!

MDS Blog Hop Friday

Well, I can hardly stand myself...but it is only Sunday night and I have finished my post for next week! Woo Hoo! I am usually working on it at 10 PM the night before.

This week was yet another sketch challenge...but I love them! It takes the guess work out of designing a page, and yet, everyone's take is so different! I love that!

Here is my page:

I used a couple of different download on this page...Delight in the Day for most of it, and the paper fill on the large circle is from Sweet Shoppe. I love how you can use different kits, and the look all comes together because of Stampin' Up!'s awesome color palette. 

Thanks for stopping by this week! I hope you have a great weekend...and Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there!

Please be sure to visit all my MDS Peeps...I am sure they have some awesome stuff to share!

Hello Stamping Friends,

We have another sketch challenge this week. These are always so fun to do, I love seeing everyone's different take on the sketch.

I finally got around to purchasing so many new wonderful downloads. For this page I used the Grad Party Kit. Such fun colors. I love the pairing of Cherry Cobbler and Marina List.  And I love this picture of my guy. I used to call him my little man, but he is too mature for that now (LOL). 

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to hop on to the other blogs and see what the gals have for you this week!
