FINALLY!!

The video below explains exactly where I have been and what I have been doing the past several days . . .

When I discovered (much to my SHOCK!) Smiley from millan.net that I could submit a project for professional printing/binding using Stampin' Up's new My Design Studio software and receive a little discount ('cause I'm a demo AND 'cause they are letting us do this ONE time in order to promote the software) I was a little flummoxed (GOOD word!)!! It took a bit for it to sink in, though, that the deadline for this offer was September 30!! I have been SOOOO out of the loop since taking our Europe trip that I have practically MISSED the month of September!!

Anywho . . . I put my back into it and this is what I came up with (just finished this baby last night!). THIRTY stinkin' scrapbook pages in just over FIVE days!! ZOINKS!! Smiley from millan.net The BEST part about it is that I don't have a SINGLE scrap of paper, ribbon or ANYthing to clean up! HUZZAH!!

The only unfortunate thing is that there is no way to do a two-page-at-a-time slideshow, and this would be even MORE impressive if you could see the two-page layouts together!! Sigh . . . guess ya can't have EVERYthing!!

Enjoy!!

(PS - I know it looks like I goofed and left the last page blank . . . no worries! It is actually the back cover to my scrapbook!)

AND since I have been asked a few times, the song playing in the background is "Better Together" by Jack Johnson. Just LOVE that man!!

That is fabulous! To be honest, I never thought I would use MDS to publish a book because of the cost (except for a gift), but you have proved me wrong. Your book will be priceless!!!!! I wish I could see it when you get it back....it will be beautiful!!
Thanks for sharing. :)

Oh My GOSH!!! I was not even going to consider getting My Design Studio. I thought of myself as a purist and I was NOT going digital but after seeing your book I have changed my mind. You did a fabulous job!

Hi Wendy, (Kathy's friend again) This scrapbook came out really nice. Did you add any embellishments after the pages were done? The buttons, ribbons, and butterflies look so real!
