CQC#201, MDSM27, PMDC-025

So I know I already have a layout posted today, but I've got another one!  Yay!  After I cleaned up the house and kids, took them to swimming lessons, fed them lunch, I sat down and played with MDS!  I played along with not one, not two, but THREE challenges.  A first for me!  I found a new challenge (thanks, Nicole!) at Pixel Maven's Retreat to use BRADS!  Well, I just happened to be using brads on my layout, so I'll squeak in under the wire before the challenge closes!  I also love this weeks' challenge colour combo at the ColourQ, and of course, I LOVE playing along at MDS Monday, and the sketch is awesome this week!  My layout came together beautifully, if I do say so myself!

PMDC-025

Hope you enjoy what I've done with these ADORABLE pictures of my two year old!


Seriously, the ability to recolour something in MDS is my most favourite feature, I think.  I recoloured my Bright Blooms to Soft Sky, Calypso Coral and Night of Navy.  It worked perfectly!  My stitching is also recoloured to N of N as well.  Did you notice for the centers of my flowers, that I used BRADS?  I love it.  The Everyday Enchantment ones are conveniently Calypso Coral!  The colour combo is fabulous!  I will definitely be using this on a card in the near future as well!

Thanks for checking it out!  Leave me a comment, letting me know what you think!  

Come back tomorrow for some gorgeous pictures of our renovation and redecoration of my daughters bedroom, which we surprised her with for her 10th birthday last week!  She says "it's like a magazine, Mom!"  And I agree... humbly of course!

Thanks ladies! And Beth... the pictures are actually in blue! First time I've ever used that feature in MDS. We'll have to see what it looks like in 'real' when I eventually get the book printed!

Oh my goodness....this is wonderful. Such a bold page! I absolutely love your little groups of embellishments - and especially the little flower centres you've created with the brads! Thanks for playing along with us at MDS Monday.

Anita, I love everything about you page..the brads, brilliant, the flowers, perfect...and how did you do the scrunch on that flower? WOW WOW!!! Beautifully done :-)

Anita Krul said...

Denise... that flower is from the Bright Blooms in MDS. It's been recolored to Calypso Coral.... probably from Melon Mambo I think! I'm glad you liked my layout... thanks for your sweet compliment!
