MDS Blog Hop ~ Desktop Screens

It's MDS Blog Hop time again!  Yippeee!  I have been snuggled up in a blanket with my lap top these cold, cold days, so MDS has been a blessing for sure!  You may have hopped on over here from the fabulous Cori Kozak's blog, or maybe this is your first stop.  If you are new to the hop, please check out all 10 linked blogs to see all the different directions that the team has taken our theme this month.  What is the Theme?  Screens - computer or phone, take your pick.  It is so fun to make custom screens with MDS!  What's your favorite photo or quote?  Favorite stamp or paper?  Use it to create something unique, just for you to see every time you log on.  It's so easy, you can change it weekly, monthly, what ever suits you.
Here is what I made...

I used a quote from the "Be Awesome Today"  download.  I intend to change the quote from time to time, as well as the Washi tape.  I made the Washi tape by creating a thin photo box, then adding some paper.  Next I used the Rip Photo Edges feature to make the edges look like torn washi tape, and I changed the opacity level as well. 
I left the left side intentionally clear of detail so that my desktop icons don't get in the way.  Here is what it looks like on my screen. 

My son said he likes it better when the wallpaper changes every so often, so I made a few versions and they change on my screen about every 3 minutes.  Its super easy to make multiples with MDS! Just delete your stamp and add a different one. 

What do you think? Check out the rest of the Hop by following the "next" button below!  You will be hopping on to Holly's blog, where you will surely be inspired to "create something everyday".  We hop on the second and forth Thursday each month, so we hope to see you often!!
