MDSM8.. Let's Rip some Photos!

Welcome back to another challenge here at MDS Monday! You guys are totally Rocking these Sketches... I'm learning so many new Techniques with MDS from everyone. This week I've created another easy Sketch. I'm all about keeping the sketch simple so you can go crazy with the layout and add extras.

Let's use a Technique this week too.. Some of the Design Team members used the Paper Rip Option on their pages.. You can see a video on this technique here.

Now let's get to the Sketch!!!

MDSM7 Top Picks!

Hello and thank you to all who played along with challenge #7. Your pages this week were awesome! I thought this was a pretty tough sketch, but you folks certainly nailed it! Let's check out the Top Picks:

This week's MDS Master is...

I just love the colours in Cathee's page and the lines she has created behind the images. I think she did such a wonderful job pulling the colours from the photo and drawing them into her page. The faux Washi Tape is a fabulous touch! Congratulations, Cathee!

And now on to the honourable mentions...

Holly's Pick / Wendie Waldman

I like how she picked the perfect colors to go with her photos and the patterns really compliment each other. Great use of the sketch, Wendie!

I love Beth's page this week. I wouldn't normally use the color combo of neon yellow and Rich Razzleberry, but it works perfectly!

My choice this week is Diane Malcor's Spring Days. The pictures flow so well together on this sketch , and I love the little extra yellow bits she added throughout... especially the topsy turvy blossoms next to the title.

We'll see you back here tomorrow with a brand new sketch from Holly!

MDSM6 Top Picks!

It's time for our top picks for MDS Monday challenge #6. We loved seeing what you created with the great sketch from Joan!

This week's top pick is...

Joan's Pick / Wendie Waldman

Wowzers!!! It was incredibly hard to pick a MDS Monday Master this week. There were so many fabulous entries. Thank you, all, for participating. I finally settled on Wendie's project "Bring on the Cake". I loved the starburst background and how she incorporated the startburst in some of the hexagons. Her photos told a wonderful story - I think it's sweet that her husband took the time to chronicle his adventures in the kitchen for her surprise.

And now on the the honourable mentions...

I just love the papers that Sherry has used and her wonderful photos. Great colours and clean design.

Holly's Pick / Jeanne Steinhilber

Jeanne's page is perfect for the pictures she chose. I really like the texture on her background page and the way she added the two small pictures.

Heidi's Pick / Kim Prakken

I am in love with her use of drop shadow effect on this mostly B&W layout! Great use of colour for emphasis!

Thank you all so much for playing with this challenge! 
Look forward to seeing you on Monday with a brand new sketch!
