I’ve decided to play along with the MDS Monday Challenge – today is the last day to add a project to the challenge from the 13th. MDSM49 – We’re scrapping – click here for the challenge details. It was a sketch and I do enjoy working with sketches. I ended up playing along because when we got to the hotel yesterday there was no internet service in the room – they were doing maintenance they said until early evening – when we went to bed around 10:30 there was still no internet – I didn’t actually check it this morning. Now we are at the airport waiting to fly back home – and there is free internet here. So instead of working on a blog post and doing other things I played in My Digital Studio. And a sketch is always a good place to start.
I decided to use some pictures from my Leadership trip earlier this month. It was a great trip and so much more fun when I was able to spend it with my two friends Diane and Linda. Traveling together, rooming together, learning together and enjoying the manager’s reception together – I’m so glad I had both of the these ladies with me. I knew I had some photos of the three of us together – a whole bunch from our last night in the hotel – when we used the tripod and the timer setting on my phone – but they may not have appreciated me sharing most of those – so I picked one good one and combined it with others of us from throughout the Leadership event.
As you can see I turned the sketch on its side – I need to be a little different right? This one was actually pretty easy because there is a photo template page that has 5 photos lined up like the sketch – so I inserted that to begin with. then I grouped the photo boxes and rotated them on the page to get my position. I created a new photo box with a 7″ width and a 2″ height and placed it on top of the one that I rotated – copied and added 4 more and then deleted the rotated ones – if I had used those my pictures would have been rotated the wrong way.
I added a background and some overlays, added the round tab punch to the ends of the photos, some staples, and text for the titles. Added a title stamp in the corner.
Signing off at the airport – we should be boarding soon and then flying across the country back to Georgia.
