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!

What a pretty girl Kiki is--and, by the way she seems to know her way around a Stampin Up box, talented too! Looks like you've landed in Kitty Heaven on Earth, Kiki. . .

Great layouts, Carol!

Love your layout of the Cats,I need to practice more with my MDS. I love your daughters bridal shower pages and I see why you may have more than 2 pages. Thanks for sharing.

Janice said...

Just love all of them. Great job, don't you just love MDS? I think the cat pages are my fav, very cute.

Sharon said...

That's awesome how you got so many pictures on that LO! Can't wait until I have a computer capable of running that MDS program!

Ann Schach said...

Carol, your MDS skills are amazing! These layouts are fabulous!

JKB said...

Great layouts!

Chris O said...

Beautiful pages, Carol! I love your kitty pics...there is something about two female cats trying to adjust to life together. I'm guessing that's where the term "catfight" originated (ask me how I know...)!

Nichole said...

Love your pages!

Love your kitty pages! I always end my scrapbooks now with "Year of Kitty Cuteness" pages, full of different shots of the cats for that year. TFS!
