First of all, to access the templates, you need to choose a size of projects. For this example, I used a 12x12 project. Then you want to click on Designer (which is the top choice):
When the template came up, I just added my pictures and text and this is what the page looked like:
|Sun Garden 12x12 Template|
The great thing about MDS is in about five minutes you can have a completed page just by using the templates. But I wanted to change up the colors and papers on this project, just because the Sun Garden colors aren't my favorite. But using the template for the layout is so much quicker than starting from scratch. So, I just went through and changed the colors, all the papers and most of the stamps and this is what I came up with:
|Sun Garden 12x12 Template. Digital Stamp Brushes: Cottage Garden. Digital Accessories: Woodland Walk DSP.|
These pictures are from my girlfriend trip to Lake Tahoe last spring. These girls have been my best friends for about 30 years and we try to get together every few years for a weekend away from our families and just cry and laugh together. They always remind me of that quote by Baz Luhrmann: "Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young." I hope you have friends like that too.
