So excited!!

Ok, so I was going to totally post this layout next week because I have stuff already scheduled to post, but I'm too flippin' excited to wait!  Once I tell you why, you'll roll your eyes, but this is something that made me so giddy with excitement, I couldn't help it!  (Ask my hubby.  I was literally jumping around the house after I got this figured out!  He totally didn't get it.)

So, I've been reading that one could purchase digi kits from other places and incorporate it into Stampin' Up's My Digital Studio software.  I had a couple of free kits downloaded from a while back that just sit on my computer because I had no idea what to do with them.  I eventually forgot about them and found them a couple of days ago while I was trying to figure out how to install some free fonts (yet another freaking headache for me that I eventually figured out by myself) I had downloaded.  I tried and tried and tried to get those stinkin' kits into MDS and just couldn't figure it out!  I was ready to SCREAM!!!  And throw stuff!!  Emailed back and forth with my friend, Liz, and scoured the MDS forums and eventually got it figured out! (THANKS LIZ, YOU ARE PHENOMENAL!)

So.....I installed it in My Digital Studio and went to town on a layout today!  And I LOVE it!!  I'm so super excited about this!!  This just opens up a whole world of MORE opportunities for my digi scrapbooking!!! 

Here's my digi layout using the free digi kit, Happy Go Lucky, from Shabby Princess:

Pics are my girly girls during an impromptu session one Sunday afternoon a couple of weekends ago.  I saw this field of wildflowers I couldn't wait to trespass on (Ssshh!  Don't tell!) to get some fantastic photos! ;)

Whatcha think?!?!  Everything I used on here is from the Happy Go Lucky kit, except I did use the flag punch from Stampin' Up.  This stuff works EXACTLY like everything downloaded and made for My Digital Studio software so it's sooooooooo easy peasy!!  Just another reason to LOVE My Digital Studio!!!  (Can you tell I'm excited?!?!?!?!)  For someone as computer illiterate as me, this is AMAZING!!!  If I have piqued your interest in My Digital Studio, please contact me TODAY!  I want to share this awesome software with everyone!  Oh, and the font I used on this was one I installed by myself as well!  So proud of myself!  LOL!!

And, here's the Sketchabilities sketch that I used!

OK... I am seriously in need of a class now! I have a ton of freebie digi stamps and art that I cringe each time I think about trying to print them in the size I want!! You must teach me your ways oh wise one! You could be my MDS Yoda!!
Fabulous page and gorgeous pictures!

Love it! I didn't realize before seeing your layout at The Shabby Shoppe Gallery, how I could use these scrapbook sketches for digi scrapping! Amazing! Kimberlee

Hi Kelly, this is Julie Warnick from the mds site. I decided to check out your blog, and found this little gem of a post! I have downloaded a few freebies and don't know how to put them into mds. Can you help me? A million thanks!

I know this post was about a year ago but I just got MDS and have a digital kit from last year at Sale a Bration time last year. Could you please help me figure out how to use them together or tell me where to get information on where to find this out?

Thanks in advance!
