MDS Blog Hop - Summer Fun!

Well, I'm still having issues with MDS 2. I can't figure out why, but when I try to select an object either takes several seconds to respond or it just doesn't do anything at all. Frustrating. I'm trying to be patient though; I know that Stampin' Up is working to fix the bugs.

My page is mostly done, so I'll post it now.  I'm trying to figure out how to add a text path all the way around my page, but so far I can't get it to work.  Maybe it's not possible?  I'll keep playing with it.

*UPDATE* Thanks to a comment from one of my readers, quirks59m, I was able to figure out how to create a text path around the page!  It still takes some tweaking to get everything just right (especially around the corners) but it works!  Here's the finished page:

I'm off to the beach today, but I hope you have some summer fun by checking our designs today!

I like the way you added the white layer to give the orange dsp the dimension of a tile.
To add text around the page, I have used the straight line and inserted 3 points. Stretch them into a square and meet the last point with the first.

I love the splatter you added and the colors you used. It's bright, fun and screams SUMMER. :)

thank you so much for the help quirks59m! I wouldn't have figured that out on my own - I was thinking in a very linear way :) And thanks for the sweet comment Kimberly!

Love this Amber! Fun colors and the journaling is just perfect! I haven't played with that feature yet... but I think I will now!
