MDS News & a Pumpkin Farm layout

Are you challenged to find time for your digital designing? Besides the ready-made-templates in My Digital Studio, I find sketches give me the boost I need for my digital scrapbook pages! Here is the current sketch from MDS Monday:

Normally they only provide a one page 12 x 12 layout, but this particular week they provided a double 12 x 12 layout and have allowed the participants the choice of which side of the layout to use - but there must be a frame added on top of an image to show the focus of the picture. If you would like to participate you can check out the MDS Monday blog at any time and join along! Sometimes there are prizes...and sometimes not but the best prize for me is knowing that I was able to complete another layout. I keep a folder just for my jobs that are ready to print so when I'm ready to order my prints I don't have to search for the files!
