MDS Monday - Favorites

So this week is the last challenge over at MDS Monday.  I've enjoyed playing along with their sketches and truly love all things MDS.  This week, the challenge is to create a layout using your favorite download.  I have several -- Downtown Grunge (I think I use those frames on almost every layout), The Best Year (so great for quick monthly pages) and the Game Day Photobook Template.

I've been working on several pages so I can get them printed through Stampin' Up! before their print services are gone for good.  (sniff, sniff)  I've used template pages from the above downloads to get them done quickly!  It's pretty amazing how you can change a few elements and colors and it looks completely different!  Here, are some pages I did using the Game Day Photobook Template download.

I kind of feel like I'm cheating when I use the template pages -- but I'm always so happy with the results!!  I changed colors, added some different stamps and journaling and then the pages are perfect for my photos!! Love it!  I recently purchased several other downloads that have photobook templates while they're on sale. I can't wait to get these pages printed!

I'll post some layouts later this week using my other two favorite downloads. Thanks to the ladies over at MDS Monday for the inspiration.  :) 

Have a great day!

Wow Cori, I really love how ALL your pages turned out. Game Day is definitely one of my favorites as well. I never would have guessed that you started with templates. That just shows what a great idea that is! Love the colors you picked - you have such a good eye for that. Thanks so much for your comments and for joining us this week at MDS Monday:)

Some of my well-used downloads as well. Love the starburst background on the skim board page - perfect colors for the beach!
