Every Tuesday night a group of us get together to work and play with our My Digital Studio software. It’s our Digi Crop night and we have so much fun every week. If you live near me and want to join us let me know – the dates and events are posted on my facebook business page – Stamping Together at Monika’s Place – we will meet twice in July and then get back to weekly in August. Last night Cindy extended a challenge to us – to complete a project and submit it for the Stampin’ Up! Arrow challenge. While I played around with a card during our crop all that I could really think of was when the boys were in scouts and would go to camp and learn about Archery. Arrows = Archery! So after the crop I went home to see if I could find some pictures from when the boys were in scouts and see if I had any from them while they were at the Archery station at camp. I had to go back to 2004! But yeah success and I got to work creating a scrapbook page featuring arrows for the challenge. Yeah me – challenge completed!
These are pictures of Ryan and Cub Scout Day camp in June 2004. He would have been a rising 2nd grader (if I counted correctly) – he will be a senior in high school this fall. I did start with a template page – it was from the Fan Fair photobook template – but doesn’t really look anything like it – I kept only the photo frames and the label for the text block. Everything else I changed. Since I could find exactly what I wanted for a designer paper I decided to use something rather plain (Downtown Grunge 1) and used stamps to create a custom background paper. Can you see all the little arrows in the background? I used arrows from the Hello There Kit – the color is Very Vanilla and then the Opacity is set to 20%.
Other arrows on the page are The Best Year arrows and I used the coloring tool to color each section to look like the target in the photos. And the arrow pointing to my little archer is from Epic Overlays.
I’m posting the page over in the challenge on MyDigitalStudio.net be sure to stop over there and like and comment on my page – maybe I can win the challenge! That would be exciting. And if you want some more My Digital Studio inspiration Cindy and some other digital designers have a blog hop going on today – go here.
Have a great day!
