Hello Friends -

Sorry for missing last week. I took a nasty fall and had sprained my hand, thus no computer time for me. This weeks challenge is a sketch. Here is the layout we were to use for inspiration:

This sketch was really a challenge for me! I tend to use one or two pictures on a layout, so to have 8 really stretched me out of my comfort zone! :) I played around with it for quite awhile, and each revision brought on a new look. 

Here is my completed page:

I've used a couple different digital kits on this page. The background paper is from Tickets and Tags, as well as the tags and labels. The borders are actually using the Digital Tape in Basic Gray. The "Best Day Ever " Ticket and "Love this" arrow are from the "Keep This Memory" kit, which is so great for vacation pictures or special trips. It has lots of fun elements. I used it on our Disney Cruise digital book, and I was so happy with it. 

The crumpled paper look is actually a digital overlay. They are SO fun for adding texture or background to your paper. I use them A LOT. This particular one is from the Natural Composition Overlay set. 

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Please continue on the hop and check out what the other ladies have in store for you!

Have a great weekend!

MDS Blog Hop Friday

Hello All -

Welcome back to our weekly hop!

This weeks theme was to create a page from your childhood. Hmmm....Well, to be honest, I don't have ANY pictures from my childhood at my house. I think my Momma or my Grandmother have all those oldies. So, I apologize, but I have broken the theme this week! You're probably better off...those pictures are real dinosaurs. ;-)

So, I decided to post a page that is one of my most FAVORITE pictures in the world. I love my hubby and my dog and was so thrilled to catch them deep in thought.

There was probably a squirrel out there or something. That always seems to catch Bella's attention. :)

The background is Crumb Cake with a vintage overlay in Soft Suede. I think I use that download the  most. I just love it! The papers are from the 2011 Notable Desktop Calendar Kit. I also used LOTS of stitching on this page, White and Chocolate. So many fun stitches to select from in the Staple and Stitches kit!

Be sure to continue on the hop and see what the other gals have come up with this week!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

MDS Blog Hop Friday - Holidays

Hello Friends, Sorry I am posting so late this morning! I am looking for my mo-jo and I can't seem to find it! Some days are like that...a creative block, struggling to get a page together. Some days, they just come together so easy. Other days, everything I touch seems lousy. Today is one of those days! I decided I just needed to be done with it! LOL Do you ever feel like that? Please tell me I am not alone! Today's theme was Here come the HOlidays! That is pretty wide open...could be Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukah ...lots to choose from! I went with Christmas, because that is what I could get my hands on this morning. :) Here is my page:
The Designer Paper is Holiday Harmony II. I love that it has a vintage look to it. Christmas is so not just your red and green anymore. The tags are from Very Merry kit, and they coordinate great with the DSP. Thanks for stopping by today. I am sure the other ladies have some awesome things to share this week, so make sure to visit them all! Have a great weekend!

Hello Friends....

This weeks theme was picked by my good pal, Ms. Kimberly VanDiepen. Seriously, I am so glad this gal joined our hop. She has MAD talent. And this week, she picked CIRCLES.

This was a great theme...because I seriously don't use them enough. All my pages are squares or rectangles. Boring!  :)

So I poking around on Pinterest (come follow me!)  and saw several really great layouts with circles. I loved this layout because I could get a ton of pictures on one page. And I added some tags and buttons for fun. Lots of circles!

Here is my page:

(Click layout for larger view)

I chose some BRIGHT colors, because it was a summer trip. The background is Primrose Petal, and the layer is Peach Parfait. 

Did you know that there is this cool new feature that selects color combinations for you on MDS 2? 
So, you pick a color, and then click on Color Combos, and whamo, it spits out 4 other colors that coordinate! How cool is that? That is how I picked these colors....Primrose Petal, Peach Parfait, Midnight Muse and Daffodil Delight. Cool, right? Give it a may discover combinations that you never thought would go together! 

And lets not forget the Mickey Mouse...again, circle punches! So easy, and so cute! 

Now don't forget that all this week is the Digital Scrapbooking Week!

There are 3 FREE DOWNLOADS for you, and 50% OFF ALL Digital Kits! WOO HOO! 
You can score some SWEET kits for making holiday cards, gift tags and more, for $5 and less!
