Look at me – I’m a guest on the MDS Blog Hop!! Twice a month a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators join together to share their passion for digital designing with My Digital Studio. And my friend Cindy asked me to join them for the month of November! How cool is that? I’m so excited! These ladies are all very talented and have amazing digital projects. So come hop along and see what everyone has created. The theme for this week is PROJECT LIFE by MDS. Everyone will share different ways that they have combined My Digital Studio and Project Life.
If you follow my blog or even my Facebook Page you’ll know that at the end of the summer Greg and I took a trip to Alaska. It was a wonderful trip and we were gone for almost 2 weeks! I took well over 1000 photos! And I wanted to create a My Digital Studio photobook that would showcase our trip and all the photos. I love the simplicity of Project Life and wanted to use the concept in my book. I’ve played around with a few different things and think I finally found what I wanted.
This page is from the first morning of our trip. We arrived the evening before in Fairbanks and checked in to our hotel and met our tour guide. I’m going to go back and make a page for our travel day. My plan is to stay heavy on the photos and add journaling and other details on pages that precede each days photos. It may change as I go along but this is my current plan.
The photo book template that I used is an older one that came out before Project Life by Stampin’ Up! started but it has all the feel of Project Life and made a good base for starting – even though I removed all the elements and changed all the boxes to be photo boxes – I even did a bit of resizing for this page. Its called – The Best Year Photobook Template. I did use some words from the Everyday Adventure Project Life Digital Kit. I will be using more from that kit throughout my book.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to hop through and see the amazing things that everyone else has done with this weeks theme.

Thank you ladies for letting me join you!
Cindy and I also host a monthly MDS Virtual Digi Crop on Facebook – we have a group that you can join if you would like to participate along with us. Our next date is November 11 – that’s next week.
Have fun on the MDS Blog Hop!!
