Blogger's Challenge #143: Think Spring!

I chose to do a page in My Digital Studio, Stampin' Up's fairly new papercrafting solution program.  I LOVE scrapbooking this way and there are so many other things you can do with the program.  I watched a webinar last night that taught me how to use it to make a multimedia project, such as a movie using a project.  You can also create calendars, cards, and there's now a download to print little box patterns!  Super cool!

I used the My Sweet Pea download that I purchased recently.  It contains the same designs that you can also get as "real" paper!  (That's another reason I love MDS...you can coordinate with SU's "real" materials and create a hydrid project; one that is digital and paper combined!)  I also learned a little corner "folding" trick from Caroline Lebel's blog...thanks so much, Caroline!

The picture is of our dog Annie.  Annie was 13 years old when we put her down.  She was a great dog.  In this picture Annie is really happy.  We had gone to the Pembina trail where she didn't need to be on a leash.  She loved her freedom!

Thanks for taking a look and be sure to see how the other players share their spring fever with you!

Great page! I had to put my poodle of 10+ years down recently and it was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I made a MDS book all about him. It helped.

What a fabulous scrapbook page and I am so loving that you did a page for your dog! As an animal lover, it makes me feel great to see that people love their animals enough to consider them family members and scrapbook about them. Beautiful job!
