    Benson Beach-MDSM105

    Hi Everyone!  Welcome to another MDS Monday!  I'm hosting the challenge this week, and I thought for today that we would try to focus on spring!  For some of us, we have had spring-like weather for awhile now, and for others?  Well.... not so much!  But this week I've got this simple sketch for you, and as an added challenge I want you to incorporate something SPRING.  It can be the colour scheme, some spring-y type stamps or embellishments, but the one thing you MUST have is a flower or plant or SOMETHING that grows!  I'd love to see what you can come up with!


    OK, here's my layout!


    So, as you can see, my picture has nothing to do with spring, but it DOES have a plant on it! Let's see what you can come up with this week!  See you in the gallery!

    A Day In The Life...-MDSM102

    Are you familiar with a daily or weekly scrap page, a page that documents a day- or week-in-the-life?  One specific example is December Daily by Ali Edwards.  In December, there are so many activities going on, that creating daily pages help document these busy times.  More generically, daily or weekly pages sprung out of Project 365, in which you take a photo every day.  Taking a daily photo frees you from having to frame the perfect scene, or document only important or exciting activities, and rather just photograph everyday life.  Society has embraced this type of photo-taking with the social media and selfie evolution.

    Once you have these everyday photos, you need a format to tell the story.  Project Life layouts can be a great way to complete day-in-the-life or week-in-the-life pages.  In fun examples by Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, you can see how she uses the date of the week or month to help tell the story.  One digital kit specifically designed for these type of pages is the Daily December Memories Photobook Template. It's not just for December, and it was from this kit that Heidi took this week's example layout for our MDS Monday challenge.  When building pages from scratch, Project Life downloads such as Hello December, Seasonal Snapshot, or any other pocket card download and Day to Day Stamp Brush Set are perfect.


    Our challenge to you is to create a daily or weekly page.  Make sure you use actual dates as part of the embellishments or pocket cards.  They can be in Project Life format or any other layout.  Don't feel you need to stick to the example layout here; we've included the link to the Daily December kit for more ideas.  The charm of the page is to just use daily photos of what you ate, where you went, what you did.  Nothing fancy, but just a fun way to tell the story of everyday life.  Can't wait to see what you create!  

    Here's my layout of a fun day away with visiting family last summer!  I'll show it to you side by side which is how they would be displayed in the book, and the I'll show you larger, so you can see more detail!  I'll have some more of these type of pages to show you tomorrow and later this week, as I have been stuck on the couch for the last week with a badly sprained ankle, and have pretty much been scrapbooking non-stop!


    And here a little larger...

    Stampin' Celebration 98-Thank You

    Hello there!  I'm back with another Stampin' Celebration!  And like I explained in my MDS Monday post...this one will be short and sweet due to me making a very foolish mistake!  Click here to read about it!  So also please forgive the quality of my picture... I could not get onto MDS at first, so I made a card and took a picture with my iphone, but the lighting in the room wasn't the best, and I didn't do any editing of the photo at all, so.... it is what it is!


    Here's my card...  


    I tried the 'stencil in watercolour technique' from one of my Online Card Classes using the colours from the challenge board.  It worked out ok, except the stencil popped up in the middle despite my best efforts, so you don't get the full effect, but it is still pretty!

    MDSM 101-Hello There!

    Hello Everyone!  Welcome to MDS Monday!  This post will be very short and sweet... I spilled soup on my laptop earlier this week and while the keyboard is working better than it was at first, there are still a few keys which do not work at all... so I have to go back and fill them in using the on screen keyboard, which is VERY time consuming.... 

    For eample, I will show you what happes if I do't go back ad fill i the missig letters.... this is what you would read!  ot too fu to try ad read this is it! ugh... what a foolish thig of me to do... but, what's doe is doe!

    So you can see I had better just post the picture and leave well enough alone here! 

    Here's the sketch!


    And here's my layout designed in MDS!
