I'm the Hostess

OOPS!! THIS WAS SUPPOSED TOP POST TILL MONDAY!  I can't figure out how to unpost, and I'm in a hurry, so I guess you get a sneak peek!!
Today is my first time as the Hostess at MDS Monday.  I created a page sketch and I hope that you will join us in the challenge.  With the new price of My Digital Studio, just $19.95, its a great time to purchase and be ready to scrap those summer vacation photos, beach photos, picnics, you name it!  You can still do the free 30 day trial too!   The trial is available as a download for those of you who like instant gratification, yippee, or I have some 30 day trial disk I could send you too.  To get the download trial go to my store (tab under the blog header) click shop now (right hand corner) and enter the item number #130910, it will not ask for any payment at check out because its FREE ! Yippee!!  Stampin' Up! also releases free downloads from time to time, so you could check those out too.  Last week it was a cute backpack template (#134687)!
Here is what I did with the sketch.  Go to MDS Monday to see what the other designers did.
Use the extra large photo box for the main event, then add smaller photos and some journaling underneath. I hope you like my sketch!
FYI, some of you have asked if you can join the challenge even if you don't have a blog to link to, and the answer is yes and please do!!   All you need to do is finish your page.  Then click the "project" button at the top of your MDS tool bar.  It will give you a few options, click "Share" and then that will give you a few more options, click "export pages".   If you don't already have one, create a folder to store your exported pages to.   I just call mine MDS Projects.  This is were I store MDS projects that I want to share on my blog, or email a picture of, or share on facebook or the site, etc.   Next, upload your creation to the site.  This site is a great source of inspiration for everyone, and anyone can add projects to the gallery.  And it's free.  Join the site and add all your projects.  You can ask for opinions, get advice, and show of what you did with my sketch (that would make me happy).  If you  add something, let me know. I would love to go check it out.  And, if you play along with my sketch, link it to the MDS Monday blog.  There is a place to do that at the bottom of the challenge post. 
Thanks for stopping by!!
