My Digital Studio - my first pages!!

I finally got to play with My Digital Studio a couple weeks ago for the first time! I'm way behind on my blogging - sorry!

Anyways, these are some of the first pages I did with one of the Designer Templates, Summer Home. It was so super easy - even I could figure it out without reading a manual or anything! It was so fast too - I created these two pages in literally minutes!

What do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know -k-?

Sweet Centers

I am loving this new Sweet Centers stamp set that is in Stampin' Up's Holiday Mini Catalog!

Also in the mini catalog are the brand new sweet treat cups that fit inside the centers of these adorable stamps.

I know how bummed I'd be if my kids or friends ripped open my card to get the candy out, so I searched and searched for ideas on how to get around that and stumbled on Mike Funke's directions on his blog for a slide out tag that doesn't involve ripping or tearing to get the treat out!

September to Remember Event

I was able to attend the September to Remember Event put on by Rhonda Morgan and Di Gibbs at the end of September. It was such a blast! I was able to meet one of my Stampin' Up heroes, Linda Hansen! I saw her speak at convention last year and she was so inspiring and energetic - it was so nice to talk to her in person. She really is one of the sweetest people I have ever met!

Here are some of the make n takes projects we did during the day:

New Kids on the Block!

I recently made this page for a Project Scrapbook challenge (one of the reasons I've been so busy - I've been helping with that). We had to scrapbook someone else's pictures and the pictures I got were of a girl and her sis. who went to a New Kids on the Block concert.

Remember them? I was so into them back in the '90s! Listening to their songs still bring back good memories! Their current stuff is pretty good as well!

Anyways, this is what I came up with. It's difficult to scrap someone else's photos - you're worried they won't like it or it won't be their style, etc. But Erika told me she loved my page, so that was a relief!

Let me know what you think of it - I love comments!

Here it is, along with the recipe:

Stamps: Extreme Guitar, A Little Somethin' (retired), corner stamp by ? (not sure)
Papers: Rockabilly Designer Series Paper (retired - bummer!), Basic Black, Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss
Ink: Jet Black Stazon
Accessories: Star Punch, Small Star Punch, Scallop Square Punch, Sizzix Big Shot, Billboard alphabet die
