MDS Blog Hop – Spring

I’m excited to be a Guest blogger on the MDS Blog Hop for the month of April!! Thank you to the design team for letting me join you all this month.  I have a spring themed page to share today that features a picture of my parents and I from a recent trip to Gibbs Gardens.  It happened to be the Daffodil Festival and there were millions of blooming daffodils while we were there.  I had so many pictures I could have used on this page but really wanted to use the one with my parents.  I’ll just have to make a companion page to feature all the beautiful flowers.

This layout was actually from a traditional scrapbook page that I had used in my regular scrapbook class recently.  I loved the combination of the Daffodil Delight and the Chocolate Chip in real life and thought I could translate it to My Digital Studio.  I made a few changes and one of the things that is so super easy in MDS that I don’t find easy in real life is adding the STITCHING!  Just a few clicks and it looks like I have real sewing on my page and I didn’t even get out a sewing machine.

Here are the Digital Supplies that I used on this page:
