Hi!!! I hope you know how excited I am to see you! Welcome back for another MDS Blog Hop. This week is one of our - whatever we happen to be working on weeks. I know I am always working on SOMETHING! LOL
I have a fun tradition I like to do with my boys and that is at least once a year we go out on a date. It gives me some great one on one time with them, and gives them an opportunity to learn how to act like gentlemen. In fact, I'd like to share a little story about this date night with you. We live in Las Vgeas, but don't go to the Strip very often, however it does offer us lots of opportunities when we want. Anyhow, for my first date night with Shane I decided to take him to Serendipity in front of Caeser's Palace for dinner and a great dessert. Through the whole night, I go over his gentleman points, "ok Shane, remember to open my door", "Shane, you should pull out Mom's chair", etc... as we were exiting an elevator with another lady and another man (not together), she motioned for us to go first, and we did. I told him, " Shane, tnight you were with me, so she was being polite to let us go, but you need to remember to always allow ladies to exit the elevator first". The man behind us actually commented that he was shocked, and he didn't think people taught their children those things anymore. It really made me proud, I try really hard to make sure these boys are "raised right".
Ok, sorry about all the talk, although I hope you enjoyed my little story. Here we are about to head out for our date
The elements on my page are from the new MDS download Hello There Kit! There are some FUN embellishments in this kit. I fell in love with some of the word embellishments and wanted to recreate the look for my page. I used the font LDJ Hearth (although I am sure you could find a similar free font) Then I added a freeform brush layer and colored in the closed in portions of the letters. After I did that, I sent that layer behind the font and I had the look I wanted!
Can't wait to see what the rest of the talented designers come up with this week! Go take a look for yourself!
