Zachary's Birthday Cake
This was the sketch. As you can see I substituted pennants for the hexagons, but I had used a lot of hexagons lately so I decided to switch it up. I like the way the sketch placed the photo boxes, cute.
One tip for this page is moving papers around in a punch. When you use a paper punch with real paper, you get to position the punch over just the exact place on the paper you want to punch out. Maybe you want a certain color to show up more or to get a certain flower or pattern in your punch. Well, the same is true in MDS. When you paper fill a punch, you will automatically get the center of the paper. But if you wanted a different area, you can change that. Just double click the filled punch and you will get a screen like this...
I also wanted a little something more in the bottom right corner, so I added some balloons in White, but reduced the opacity to 33% so they are there, but not really distracting, KWIM?
