MDS Monday is HERE!!!!

Today's the Day....It's the kickoff for a NEW CHALLENGE BLOG dedicated to digital designing with My Digital Studio. I am SOOOOOO excited to be on the Design Team.

We will be posting a new challenge every other Monday (Bi-weekly) and the challenge will be open until the following Friday.  You will have 12 days to enter the challenge.  Top Picks will be announced on Sunday after the challenge closes.  Although the Design Team members will be using My Digital Studio (MDS) from Stampin'Up!, you are welcome to use any digital design software you have to make scrapbook pages, cards, home decor, or whatever you like - as long as you follow the sketch provided in the challenge....and so....

Here is our first Sketch Challenge...

and here is the page I created using it.

Elliot watched Allison quite intently for quite a while as she was doing some math homework.  Then he got interested in the calculator and started distracting her more.  It was a fun evening.

This is a fairly simple  page - using a lot of punches filled with the Newsprint DSP.  I added the School Days II  stamps to a circle punch to co-ordinate with the mathematical theme of the page.  The only real technique I used this week was to colour match the blue matt of one of the banners with a blue from Elliot's shirt.  And "texture" was added to the Very Vanilla with a texture overlay from Be Awesome Today.

So - come join the challenge.  Pop over to the  MDS Monday Blog to see the inspiring creations from the other Design Team Members.  When you've finished your creation AND linked it to the MDS Monday blog, you will have your name put in a draw for a MDS2 download of your choice valued at $9.95.
