Stampin' Celebration #36... MDS Style!

Hi Stamping and Scrapping Friends!
Oh. My. Goodness!!  I had soooooo much fun creating this 12x12 digi scrap page with My Digital Studio!!  It is my most favorite MDS page ever!!!  (At least until next week, when I create another one!)  Like I say every time I post an MDS page, I am completely addicted to digi scrapping!  I never thought I would enjoy it this much.  I created this page for the inspiration challenge over at the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge.  Here are the inspiration photos:
I chose to use the colors Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, and Blushing Bride.  Also from the pictures I was inspired by the flowers, the polka dots, and those butterflies by the cupcake.  The fabulous scrap sketch came from the PageMaps blog.  It has been one of my go-to scrap sketch sites for years.  I was a scrapbooker long before I was a stamper.  (A CM party way back in '93 got me hooked!)  And now that I'm back scrapping again with My Digital Studio, I've been visiting PageMaps more and more.  I need to sit with a big stack of paper and print me up last years sketches.  I think I have all of them printed up to 2009.

All the elements I used on this page come with the original My Digital Studio software.  I've purchased ZERO downloads.  I've only done the FREE updates from Stampin' Up!  Of course that will all change on February 1st when I plan on purchasing a boatload of MDS stuff.  I'm really wanting more Designer Series Paper, more embellishments, more kits, more everything!!! 

Why am I waiting until 2-1?  So I can get the Sale-A-Bration benefits of course!!  The Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration promotion starts on January 25th.  There are three easy ways to earn FREE products:
1.  Spend $50 and earn one FREE SAB product.  For every $50 you spend, you can choose another FREE SAB product!!
2.  Host a workshop of at least $300 and earn one FREE SAB product in addition to the generous hostess benefits.
3.  Join Stampin' Up! by becoming a demonstrator during SAB and get 15% off your Starter Kit.  Plus, get a bonus bundle filled with over $50 in FREE products!
Contact me if you are interested in learning more about either of these three ways you can earn FREE products!!

This past week I was honored with the Stylish Blogger Award from my very sweet "pretend stamping friend" Cindy at Heart's Delight Cards.  Come back tomorrow and find out 8 things you may not know about me.  Although this may be kinda tough for me, as I talk way too much and my life is an open book!  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy Stamping and Scrapping!
