MDS Monday – Downtown Grunge

digital scrapbook page using photo frames from the Downtown Grunge Photobook Templates downloadWelcome to MDS Monday. As the November guest designer on the MDS Monday blog, I bring you this great birthday scrapbook page. The sketch is by Beth and I particularly love the frames around her photo places.

sketch for digital scrapbook page for MDS Monday challenge 90So I went on a search and found them in one of my favorite downloads, Downtown Grunge Photobook Templates (126056). I have used the wrinkled pattern of its designer series papers frequently for a distressed background on cards and scrapbook pages but had never paid any attention to the frames that come with the download. I really like the way the corners of the frames make the photos look a little distressed.

The greeting is from the Little Milestones Birthdays Greeting Card Template Set (129890). It originally said ‘Have a Monstrous 3rd Birthday.’ Thanks to the stamp cropping tool, I was able to crop off the ‘Have a Monstrous’ part.

Of course, I had to add an overlay to create interest in the background without distracting from the rest of the page so I added the swirl stripe pattern of the Decorative Overlays stamp set (129880) and changed the color to Pink Pirouette .

Now it’s your turn. Create a scrapbook page or card from this template and then go to the MDS Monday blog to link back to your blog. Click here. While you are there, check out the other samples.
