Our First Ever PLxSU Trio Challenge!

I am so excited to be a part of this brand new Project Life Challenge! Holly, Cori and I have been friends for awhile now and they are always sharing their PL layouts with me. Their enthusiasm for PL is catching and even though I've been reluctant to make the switch to this method of memory keeping, they inspire me!

I hope you'll want to play along with us each week as we share different ideas and techniques. And please - any advice you want to share with me will be welcome. I'm a newbie at this!

Hopefully most of you have heard the sad announcement that Stampin' Up will no longer be offering MDS beginning in June. It breaks my heart because I was such a big supporter of the program, but these things happen and it is the best move for the company. You can still continue to use the program though - there just won't be any updates for it.

This week the Trio challenges you to split a picture between pockets.

I'm still a big fan of digital scrapping, so I decided to create my page using MDS since I'm still learning my way around Photoshop. Here is my page of a trip we took to Monticello a few years ago:

If you're using MDS it's actually quite easy to split your photos between multiple boxes. Simply highlight the photo boxes and group them together. When you click and drag your photo over the boxes it will automatically split them for you!

Have you checked out Holly and Cori's pages yet? They are fantastic!

We can't wait to see what pages you create! Post a picture of your page (or pages) to our Facebook page! You might just be our first Challenge Winner and win a PL accessory pack of your choice!!

And don't forget to enter the Trio Challenge contest!

I'm so excited for this challenge. I was just going to start doing PL in MDS so I'm super sad with the announcement - I guess it's time to breakdown and get an ipad so I can use the PL App!

I LOVE this page, Amber! The photos are wonderful and it's so colorful! :)

Me too Courtney! I am so disappointed that MDS is going away. I'll keep using it for now, but I bet the next time there's a update for my computer it'll be too buggy to use :( the PL app is lots of fun though!
