You & Me MDS Layout

Good morning!  I hope you had a wonderful long weekend (if you had one).  We spent lots of time with family this weekend - always good times.  I also managed to get through 2 piles for my scrapbook organization project!  You can actually walk into the room now.  I'm kind of at a stand still though because I've used up all my albums.  I need to wait until I can order from the new catalogue to get a few more.  In the meantime, I will work at sorting each pile by month.  That will make it a lot faster when it comes to inserting them into the albums.

On to todays project... I had a bit of time last night to work in my digital studio and had seen a layout similar to this in a magazine and thought it would be a perfect one to copy using MDS.  I started with a heart shaped punch and just increased the size to a full 12x12.  Changed the colour to white and added a mat so I could see where the shape was.  Then it was just a matter of adding punches and embellishments. 
  • Patterned paper for the punches is from the Day in the Life Kit
  • Bakers twine
  • Bold & regals buttons
  • Basic pearls & rhinestones
  • Greatest Moments II - you & me
You notice that in the lower right corner I have the year the photo was taken.  All my layouts from now on will include that either in the journalling, in the corner or on the back.  After working on organizing my pages that is something that has been driving me crazy.  I have to try to guess at what year the photos were taken by looking closely at my kids.

Anyway, I'm hoping to have more digital projects to inspire you over the next few weeks, time permitting. 

Don't forget that you can download a FREE 30-day trial version of My Digital Studio on my website.

Thanks for stopping by!
