Enjoy the Moment

This is my very first project using My Digital Studio.  I've had this program for awhile now and have not used it.  I don't know why...scared to try something new perhaps?  This week Stampin' Up! is celebrating Digital Scrapbooking Day all week from November 1-8.  There will be free downloads, challenges, guest bloggers, and daily deals (can you say 50% off!!).  Visit the My Digital Studio Blog every day to keep up with all the fun!  The challenges are what finally got me inspired to try out this program and I'm glad it did. 

My layout features my pictures from Stampin' Up!s Convention this past summer (my very first to attend) and the Hello There Kit - (133374 - $9.95 US).  The colors in this kit went perfectly with the color scheme that was used at convention. This digital download includes:
* 17-piece SVG stamp brush set
* 13 Designer Series Papers
* 26 embellishments 

I hope you like it, even though it is pretty basic and simple.  But, I had a lot of fun creating it and I am proud of it, simple or not.  I'm still learning, so I am sure I will improve with practice, just as I did with traditional scrapbooking. I am now officially over the "fear factor" about using this program.  I don't know what took me so long!!

Paper Secrets Birthday Bash - Altered Box Challenge

Here is another project I did for the Altered Box challenge at Paper Secrets. I have had this box for several years and I was very tired of the paper that it was covered with. I figured it was about time for a change, so I recovered it with retired Stampin' Up! paper. Hope you like it!
