Epcot Fountains Page 2!

I had so much fun creating my scrapbook layout last night that I couldn't wait to create the second page!

I had so many photos from this day that I wanted to scrap.  I re-colored the photostrips from the Downtown Grunge Photobook Template to white to match my layout - love that new feature.  I also love being able to "insert duplicate page mirrored" in MDS2 - it makes it so easy to create a double-page layout!

Don't forget that you can get MDS2 for 50% off during the Online Extravaganza!!  Lots of your favorite products for 20-50% off!  Woo hoo!  Hurry - this sales ends Wednesday, November 28th!

MDS Monday Challenge

I found a brand new challenge blog called MDS Monday, that I'm pretty excited about!  It combines My Digital Studio and sketches!  Sketches and MDS are my favorite way to scrapbook!  Yahoo!  I couldn't wait to create a layout with their very first sketch!  Here it is:

I have tons of photos from our Disney trip a couple of years ago sitting in my computer. Sometimes I find that I hold onto the really good photos and wait to scrapbook them and I'm not sure why?!  But, I'm on a mission to put a dent in these photos!!  And I just love how this layout turned out!  I can't wait to do the accompanying page!  Here is the sketch that this layout was based on:

If you haven't tried digital designing yet, you've got to try My Digital Studio!  You can get the software 50% off until November 28th - visit my online store here!!  It is such an amazing program!!

Mid-Monthspiration Digi Scrapbook Layout

It's time for a little Mid-Monthspiration over at Stampin' Celebration!!  I wanted to make a second project with this month's challenge.  I was inspired by the photos to make a scrapbook page and {finally} scrapbook our photos from Thanksgiving last year!

I created this double page layout using the Wonderfall Digital Kit.  This download has so many CUTE elements to it!

Here is the SCIC photo that was my inspiration for this layout:

I used the pumpkins, leaves and wood-grain from the barn for my inspiration in this layout.  I created the little pumpkins using the oval punch and filled it with DSP from the Howlstooth and Scaringbone download.

You have until the 25th of this month to join us over at Stampin' Celebration!!  Upload your project using the linky tool on the blog and you might be selected as this month's "Pick of the Party"!

I couldn't wait to play - here's what I created:

On this layout, all I did was add my photos, change the text, and add the baseball from the new Game Day Baseball download.  Here are the stamp brush images for that new download:
