I'm going totally out of my comfort zone with this latest project....a layout from the blog MDS Monday. Not familiar with MDS Monday? It's a blog dedicated to making projects using the My Digital Studio software from Stampin'Up!
I'll be the first person to admit that I'm not into the digital stuff. I like to have my hands right on my projects and when using the computer I usually get frustrated and ticked off when trying to digitally create something. I bought MDS when it came out a few years ago, used it maybe once or twice and then forgot about it. Fast forward to this year?last year?...I cant remember....and SU was offering the program for $19.95. Since my laptop didn't have the program and I had no clue where my original disk was I figured what the heck, I'll buy it. It's been sitting on computer since then with nary a glance from me.
A Christmas challenge I play with wanted digital elements for this weeks challenge so I broke out MDS and made a card. Then I thought about my friend Holly and the MDS blog and thought what the heck, I'll give it a shot!
I am proud to say that I got the layout made without my computer being thrown out the window, and with no naughty words being flung about! I kept it nice and simple, followed the tutorial that MDS linked to for the photo technique and I was good to go! Maybe I'll learn enough of the program so I can create my families Christmas card this year....maybe.... ;)
The photo I used is of a cow moose that visited us for several days in February. The moose love to come nibble on the willow trees that separate my place from the property next door!
