Scrappin' STARS Blog Hop

Welcome to the SUStars September Blog Hop!  A full list of stops can be found here.

You may have landed here from Nancy Keithley's blog found here.

We are focusing on scrapbook layouts this month.  I have used My Digital Studio to create my layouts.  I really love this program!

This first 2-page layout is one that I am fairly happy with.  I just brought another cat into our home.  She got mixed reactions from the 2 cats we already had.  Our little guy likes her pretty well.  He even bathes her sometimes.  But he will run and cry if she gets too rough (she still has claws!).

But our other female doesn't like her at all.  After 4 weeks, it is getting a little better, but still a lot of hissing and growling.

This photo shows one of the biggest reasons I love MDS.

I have loads of photos from my daughter's bridal shower.  When I started trying to create a layout of them I was trying to put lots of pics on one page.  And I still will probably have a collage page of several photos, but the point is that, with MDS, I can change up my layout as many times as necessary without using lots of paper and embellishments to do it.  I'll just keep trying until I get something I like.  I think the page on the right side is much better than the first one, but I am still not sure it is how I will leave it.  I can't seem to find exactly what I want.  So maybe I will end up doing 5 or 6 pages before I find the one I really want to put in my album.

I would encourage all scrapbookers to give My Digital Studio a try.  I think it is great!

Your next stop on the hop is Connie Smith's High Desert Stamper and can be found here.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Christmas Lodge

This is one of the cards my stampers made this month.  Christmas Lodge stamp set can be found in the Holiday mini.  Dazzling Details glitter glue, also found in the Holiday mini, was used along the torn and blue-sponged edges and on the image wherever there is snow.  The girls really liked this card.

I know I haven't been posting much lately, but I hope that will change after my daughter's wedding is over.  Do check back this weekend for the Scrappin' Stars blog hop.

Thanks for looking!

Gently Falling

I absolutely love this wonderful stamp set called Gently Falling.  It is a beautiful addition to my collection of fall stamps.  But it could easily be used other times of the year by changing the colors of the leaves.  It is available in the new Holiday mini catalog.  The greeting comes from Grateful Greetings.

Thanks for stopping by!
