Saturday Sketch Challenge and MDS

I hope you had a wonderful holiday!

It's time for another fabulous sketch challenge from the operators at the 411 blog.

This week's sketch certainly lends itself well to a scrapbook page. Being the day after Thanksgiving, I was still not ready to get out in the stamping studio. So instead, I used my digital studio to create this awesome page.

In the photo, you'll see 6 of the 7 of our group. Patti is missing but we will get some photos again in January.

Also, there are some amazing gifts on the 411 blog this weekend and all you have to do is leave a comment! I hope you will go leave some love, and maybe receive some in your mailbox!

Now ~ A little more about my process. My digital studio could certainly be one of the most addicting tools in my arsenal. Let me set the scene... It's the day after thanksgiving. You can sit on the couch with the laptop and not get the stamps dirty. :) No cleanup, no prep.. This is just gorgeous!

The background paper is real red flowers, and I put a punch shape square, which i enlarged in a solid red. I added in a flourish and grabbed one of the colors in the paper. it's a stamped off real red. At this point, I clicked a button and slid it to the left, to make that element 40% opaque.

Drop shadow is a girls best friend. Click the element, then on the right, click drop shadow. The program will allow you to adjust how dark, and where the shadow sits. This is such fun!

Have a wonderful Weekend!
