Stars & Stamps Sketch #27

One of my tweet-hearts took a challenge the other day and created a scrapbook page from a card sketch... so I was inspired today to take the sketch challenge and make my card, but also to make a layout for my birthday photo.

Today's Crafting brought to you by the wonderful folks at Operation Write Home's Stars & Stripes Blog where inspiration comes from this :
and my Card creation (this is a 7x5 card):

and my Scrapbook Page 11x8.5 :

I am trying to be more scrapbook-y :-) and My Digital Studio totally helps me do that! I have been creating online photo books for a while now, and lucky for me it is really similar to MDS, but I have so much more ability to customize. I like that there are some premade layouts - great for dropping those office party pics into, when you just don't need to spend a lot of time on it, but you need it to come out great?! But I am really having fun stretching my creativity with the fully customizable pages. I decide from layer one how they will look.... Ah the wonders of digi-scrapping!!
