Lovin' the Neutrals


I created this layout using My Digital Studio last night of my sweet son.  This layout combines two scrapbooking challenges that I found.  I just love challenges to get my creative juices flowing!  First, I used the sketch from MDS Monday.  Secondly, I played along with the digi scrapbooking challenge over at SCS where we were to create a layout using neutral colors.  Here is what I came up with:

Not the best quality photos I know... but how could I not scrapbook them?!

The MDS Monday challenge also suggested that we try to use cropped embellishments on our layout.  I  cropped the top part of the sentiment and then the bottom part before I combined it again.... so I could get the two different colors that I wanted together.  Sound confusing?  I made a YouTube video to show you what I did.  :)

Disclaimer:  I'm new to the whole YouTube thing so go easy on me as the beginning of the audio was cut out... but the dogs weren't barking, my phone didn't ring, my calendar reminders didn't pop up on my computer screen... etc.  So, I didn't re-do it.  LOL!

Let me know if you have any questions about creating in MDS.

Oh what a lucky Mom to have this precious moment recorded - and scrapped. I love your use of the neutral colours with our sketch. Thanks for joining us at MDS Monday!

I love Downtown Grunge! Very cute page, and I love the strips for an embellishment under the photos. I need to start shooting videos... oh sigh. Thanks for joining MDS Monday this week.

Great photos! You're right, they needed to be scrapped :) I love the strips of paper along the bottom. Thanks for sharing with us at MDS Monday this week!
