Headed to Cooperstown!

Hi there!  We are back with another MDS Blog Hop!  Today we are sharing with you what we've been working on!  This is a crazy time of year… end of the year school parties, graduations, field day, room mom duties, vacation planning, etc.  I haven't had a lot of time for creating this week!  I did however, make some little gift tags yesterday that I can show you.  My son's baseball team is going to play baseball in Cooperstown in a couple of weeks!  This Southern girl is excited to go to NY!  Anyhoo, the team stays in the barracks by the ballpark for the week.  We wanted to give them a little goody bag when we arrive.  I created tags in MDS so they can keep up with who's is who!

Nothing fancy, but pretty cute and simple to make!

Here's what it looked like in MDS:

Download Used:
Game Day Baseball
Font:  Headline

I used our team colors and coordinating (retired) ribbon.  I alternated the colors just to make them a little different.  I cut them out into circles and the moms put them on the bags tonight at practice. :)  They are ready to go!!

I'm anxious to see what MDS goodness the other designers have been working on! Next up along our hop is Beth Rush!  Click the button below to hop on over to her blog!

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!!

School Layout for SC#79

Hi there!  It's time for a little mid-month inspiration over at Stampin' Celebration!  Today we have a fun sketch for you!

I really wanted to use my new stamps I got at the Catalog Premiere but…. I haven't had time to play with them yet!  Luckily, I was able to whip out a scrapbook layout in MDS while I was volunteering at the school desk the other day.  Here's my layout:

I flipped the sketch so I could take advantage of that open space for my journaling.  I just love this picture of my oldest son (from 2 years ago) and am thrilled to finally scrap it!  

MDS Downloads Used:
Old School, Downtown Grunge, Flag Punch

Make sure and stop by the Stampin' Celebration Blog and see what the other designers have created!!  And why not play along with us?  Use this month's sketch to create something great and link it to the blog!!  We'd love to see what you're inspired to create!!

Thanks for visiting!

Baseball Mom Scrapbook Layout

Welcome back to another round of the MDS Blog Hop!  Today our hop is all about MOMS! :)  I love being a mom and had a wonderful role model growing up!  It was hard to decide what photos to scrapbook but decided to work on some photos from Mother's Day last year.  My youngest son had a baseball tournament and my older son caught some photos of us together.  :)  Here's my layout:

I had so much fun with one of my new downloads:  Endless Birthday Wishes - even though this layout is not about birthdays.. the colors are so fun! :)

MDS Downloads Used:
Endless Birthday Wishes, Game Day, Staples & Stitching, Rhinestone Jewels

I'm looking forward to this weekend and creating more wonderful Mother's Day memories!!

Anchors Away Scrapbook Layout

It's time for a fun inspiration challenge over at Stampin' Celebration!

When I saw these photos I instantly knew I wanted to scrapbook more of our cruise pictures.  And lucky for me, I have two downloads that work perfectly for that theme! Here is the layout I created in MDS:

Downloads Used:
High Tide, Anchors Away, World Traveler, Downtown Grunge, This & That Epic Day, Bakers Twine, 12 Days of Christmas, Snowy Soiree, Story of Us, Legit Kit, Finest Simplicity

I loved scrapbooking these memories for my kids to look back on!  And I've had so much fun with the Anchors Away and High Tide downloads - a must-have for vacation photos!

You won't want to miss what the other designers have created!  Make sure and stop by the Stampin' Celebration blog!!  You have until the end of this month to play along with either of our challenges.  We hope you'll join us!

Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous day!!  :)
