MDS Monday #94 - my little dancer

Hello!!  I just realized I forgot to post my MDS Monday project!  yikes!  It's such a busy time of year! 
This page shows my daughter at Ballet class, so just loves it!  I used papers from the watercolor winter download, but I recolored them to match her skirt! fun! 












Watercolor winter has 9 papers that for some reason are not showing up in the preview but they are soft stripes and dots in a fun watercolor look, in the colors at the left. I used the recolor tool to make them match my photos!

First Day of Kindergarten

Hi Everyone!  It is MDS Monday time again!  This time Tami has a sketch for us.  Her sketch is really pretty and elegant but I didn't have any photos to scrap in that format, so I eliminated the flourish-y frames and kept it simple.
I used stamps and papers and embellishments from the Storytime download.  This is a pricey download but it is really loaded with pieces.  You get a 34 page 8 x8 book template all designed for you,  a 24 page swatchbook all designed and ready to go, 74 stamps, 20 papers and 126 embellishments!! WOW! You can also buy a 12 paper assortment for just $4.94 (Storytime Designer Series Digital papers) if you don't think you will use all the extras but love the vintage school days designs of the papers. 


Here is the sketch!  We can't wait to see what you come up with!  Head on over to the MDS Monday site and see what the rest of the design team has made, we hope you play along!

Take two on Sketch #92

Hi everyone!  I decided to do another page with this weeks sketch at MDS Monday.  This time I just used one of the pages from the two-page sketch.  I just love working from sketches and even though I already used this layout, I think the page is so completely different that it will work just great in my album.  And, the pages are years apart so no one with notice, right?  Right!
I thought these snowmen where a bit on the crazy side but cute, and I just had to use them for a page.  They are from the download called "Christmas Collection" which is a collection of Christmas card templates. 


In case you missed it, here is the sketch.  Head on over to MDS Monday to see the other sample from this sketch! I hope you find something inspiring!













Christmas Collection Greeting card templates 130986 $5.95 
You get 10 greeting cards but also the pieces that were used to make the cards, in this case 11 stamps and 18 embellishments.You can click the link above to get a better view.


Thanks for stopping by!!

MDS Monday sketch #92 two-page spread

Hello everyone!  Hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving! 
This week Cindy has a two- page sketch for us at MDS Monday.  We  haven't had one of those in a while have we?  Two-page sketches are especially nice when you want larger photos or you have many photos from an event.  I decided to use some pictures of my boys from Christmas 2007!  There is a very nice park in town that has a pretty greenhouse open to the public.  They change out some of the plants along the paths to match the seasons and I thought the poinsettia display would be nice for Christmas photos.  Here is the sketch
 Head on over to the MDS Monday and see what the rest of the design team has come up with.  Then we hope that you will give the sketch a try of your own.  You can do the two-page sketch, or make a single page based on one of the sides.  We hope that you play along with us this week!

Digital Weekly Deal ~ Autumn Spice

Hi Everyone!  Did you see the weekly deals this week?  The digital kit is a SUPER GREAT DEAL!  I really love the French Foliage Stamps set, and the papers from this kit are among my favorite fall papers.










I made this card in MDS back in September.
You can see the post here.



























Here is a card I made with this download a few years back.  I love the sentiment and the Acorn.










Finally a Fall page, one of the very first pages I made with MDS back in 2011.  This is a really pretty download kit so if you don't have it, pick it up this week while it is on sale.  It's only $5.97 this week!

MDS Monday # 91

Hello everyone!  Happy Tuesday!  I am finally getting around to posting my MDS Monday project! Opps!  This week Tara has a simple sketch for us, as well as a challenge to use numbers on our page.  The sketch has three photo boxes and I have three kids so I decided to make a page of them. My page is so simple its silly to write about it, but sometimes simple is just right.  I really like the photos of the children and they really shine on this non cluttered page. 







Here is the sketch.  Head on over to the MDS Monday site to see what the rest of the design team has come up with, then give the sketch a try of your own.  We hope you will play along with us this week!
