Today (well actually yesterday) I was asked if I wanted to be a Guest Blogger on!  I was so excited I couldn’t even finish the conversation that I was having with Greg on the phone.  I had to read the email several times to make sure it was really for me and it was.  So today I have a blog post on  If you have Stampin’ Up!s My Digital Studio and you haven’t yet joined this online community you need to put that on the top of your list.  You will learn so much from everyone else – you can ask questions, see samples, watch videos, and more.  So go do it today  – it is a free community for My Digital Studio users.

My blog post was about my Leadership Roommates page that I posted a few days ago and something called Project 52.  It is a challenge on to create one page a week and then have a completed 2011 book at the end of the year.  I had previously set a goal for myself (before I found the challenge) to create at least one page/project a week in MDS so this challenge seemed to fit right in to what I was already doing.  I left a comment on the blog about it and then they asked me to write a post for today.  Thank you Stampin’ Up! for the opportunity!

These are my “Project 52” pages that I have made so far this year.  I have previously posted them to my blog so if you want more details look at the original post for each page.

Project 52 - week 1

Project 52 - week 2

Project 52 - week 3

I know that I started to do a similar thing last year and that was to scrapbook a page each week the traditional way.  I made at least 52 pages or more last year I just didn’t get pictures on all of them and didn’t post them all to my blog.  The blogger that was doing that challenge last year never finished because she went back to school full time and was working a job and has a big family and her blog and the challenge were put on the back burner.  This year I plan to do better and really get pages made with pictures on them in MDS.

On January 30th I will be having my first My Digital Studio class at my house.  If you would like to attend bring your laptop loaded with MDS and have some pictures on it too.  We will be starting with the basics and I will be showing you how I made the Leadership Roommates page as part of the class.  Please contact me to rsvp or if you have questions.

Not to fear I’m still doing traditional scrapbooking and my monthly class for that is on January 28th – we will make two 2-page 12×12 layouts at the class and it will be offered both in the morning and in the evening.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you’ll visit my post on and leave me a nice comment there or leave one here.  Thanks so much!
