My first MDS Blog Hop!

I'm so excited to have been asked to participate as a guest blogger with the talented ladies in the MDS Blog Hop!  I'm a new blogger, just since October, but I'm not new to being crafty!  I've been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for more than 16 years and I love paper crafting, although my new passion is digital crafting!  I've always loved seeing cute sayings and quotes on Pinterest and I thought, "Hey, I can do that with My Digital Studio!"  Now, I'm kind of addicted!  I love making cards and printables with My Digital Studio, but I have to admit, I struggle with scrapbooking with it!  I love the way some designers (including our own talented MDS blog hop girls) can just put all sorts of paper, photos, embellishments, and textures together and make a darling layout--that is not the way my brain thinks!  I'm a CASE girl!  I love to see ideas from other designers and change them up to make them my own!  I did this on today's project!  I saw a cute page using the grouped photo technique, I changed it up a bit and added my photo and fun winter details and I came up with this:
I used the "Winter Wonderland" title from the new Let it Snow ensemble (recolored), the background paper is from Number One DSP,  the chevron paper is from the On the Go kit, and the snowflake is from the Old St. Nick stamp brush set. I added a few stitches around the edge.  I'm sure by now, you've seen all the lovely creations from all the creative ladies on this blog hop, it's always nice to leave a comment so they know how much you enjoy their projects!!
