{Take 2} - First project revisited...

So, I got to play with the My Digital Studio {aka MDS} program a little more tonight and decided that my first pass of my scrapbook page looked a little blah, after figuring out how to do some things. It's amazing what you can do when you click around and go about things via trial and error! After spending about an hour getting my bearings on all the different elements - papers, stamps, embellishments, various doo-dads, etc. - here's the stepped up version AND a second facing page, even! I know, check me out, huh?! {wink wink..this is somewhat new-ish to me}
I am a techie sort of geek anyway, so I'm finding this new application pretty fun. It's actually really simple and intuitive to use so far. Now, there is still a lot I need to figure out, but I think I can safely say that I can get by with some basics. Probably enough to put a book or 2 together! Wow - this is really a breakthrough for me, because I have about a decade's worth of pictures that need to be scrapbooked. I had every intention to do it the traditional way, though I have to say this digital scrapbooking method is pretty darn fun and efficient, since all your pics are on your computer anyway. {At least, most of mine are!}

I haven't even begun to think about the card possibilities with this MDS application, but I know it'll probably bring a whole new meaning to card sketches for me :) My preliminary review of this app gets a definite thumbs up.

PS - just wanted to note that all the background papers, embellishments, and page layouts are from the MDS app, although the fonts I used are what I had already downloaded onto my computer.

Love the stepped up version, and the facing page looks great!
Are you printing your pages, or are you having them printed for you?
Take care!

Great job, Rose! I am still learning the program...haven't created any pages yet! Still trying to feel my way around!
Love your layouts...thanks for the inspiration.

How fun! I have been wanting to try some digi stuff, but don't know where to start! I have so many pics to scrap too! :)

Those two pages turned out wonderful!!! I am so envious - I wish I could order the MDS, too! (Can't 'cos I'm in Quebec.)

You did a great designing job!
