Stella is such a whirlwind, I have a difficult time capturing her exuberance with my camera. In fact, of the many, many photos I took of her those two days, there is just a tiny handful that would be worth printing out.
However, I did manage to get a somewhat nontraditional image of her this past Sunday. I decided to incorporate it in a scrapbook layout.
I hadn't yet used any of the designer templates that are available for layouts in MDS (My Digital Studio), so I decided to give one of them a try. This is for a 12" x 12" layout, and I made only a few changes.
This turned out to be a fun, quick and easy way to capture a precious memory forever. Once I have it printed by Stampin' Up!'s printing service (which is awesome, by the way), I could easily turn it into a hybrid project by adding various "real" elements, such as buttons, ribbons, die cuts. Those things are all available in MDS, but if you are a real stickler for more "traditional" lumpy scrapbooking, a hybrid page would be a good option.
A cool piece of MDS news is that recently Stampin' Up! reduced the price of the program from its former $79.95 price down to a mere $19.95!! And, if you buy the download, you not only don't pay any shipping, but it arrives in your computer immediately! And you can get right to work -- and FUN!
