So how did we end up in Phoenix when we went to Palm Springs? Well my parents were already there in California, so we left our kids with them for a night and drove to Phoenix to watch our favourite hockey team (the Vancouver Canucks) play an away game. And let me tell you it was tons of fun. Although our team lost in a shoot out, the arena was half full of Canucks fans. The people beside us had even dyed their hair blue and painted their faces. It was tons of fun.

Holiday Fun with MDS
I've decided to use this weekend to try and compete in a few challenges as you will see over the next few days. This top page was created for 'Just Add Ink's challenge this week. Ahhh photo fun with MDS (my digital studio from Stampin' Up!) We were in Palm Springs a few weeks ago and I had NO INTERNET - so I had to console myselft with digital scrapbooking. The photos in these 2 pages were taken with my Blackberry, so the quality isn't that great. These 2 pages were from a designer template pack based on the Simply Scrappin' Kit called Sunny Day. Basically you can add in the photos and be done, but I find that these predesigned pages are also good for giving me a starting point. I added the photos and then decided to jazz up the pages a bit more. So I added in more text - like the title 'hockey'. And more embellishments. (notice the flowers from the Sweet Pea Stiched Felt kit?)
