Remember I blogged last week that I was going through old pictures and strolling down memory lane?!! Well, one of the reasons is I wanted to find some great pictures to do a My Digital Studio challenge over at MDS Monday. This is their 100th Sketch Challenge and they are giving away prizes!! When I ran across these pictures taken several years ago (Cassidy is now a teenager!!), I knew they were the ones I wanted to use. I remember this day so well. We were in Tucson visiting Jeff and his family and we were babysitting. It was a beautiful sunny day so Sonny and Cassidy found some bubbles and he taught her how to blow them. She was so excited!

The challenge is running for two weeks and it started last week. To enter the challenge, you select any of the past 99 sketches, create a new project, and link it to their website. They have set up a Pinterest Board with all the past sketches. That was the hard part!! Which one do I choose? But I knew I wanted a sketch that I could do the picture progression above.
The background paper is from World Traveler and I found the polka dot stamp in Beautiful Today and made it a watermark color. I found this font that I love called Pea Ellie Bellie! Don't miss the girl and boy sitting at the top blowing bubbles (from Storytime). I found some stitching I liked in Family Fun and the Project Life Banner which I colored Lost Lagoon
I even made my own bubbles!! I used a Circle Punch and color filled it with DSP from Watercolor Wonder and made them different sizes. (Don't forget to add a drop shadow for extra dimension.) I also used a few brads for my bubbles! Then it just had to have a little shine added. To create the reflection, I used the Freeform tool and moved the anchors around on the circle shape to get the shape for the shine.
So, the sketch that I used was # 65. How do you think I did? Would I win a prize?? It doesn't matter. I just enjoy MDS so much!!
