MDS Blog Hop Friday - Following Inspiration

This week's challenge was to case or be inspired from the MDS blog hop designer after ourselves in the line up. What my luck that it is the very creative Erica! When I saw this page below at Convention and then her blog and then on as a featured page HERE, I knew that I wanted to use that background technique for one of my own pages. You can see her video on how to create the background TUTORIAL HERE.
My page started out so differently with a Pool Party background. One of the reasons to love MDS digital scrapbooking so much! I was able to change over and over again til I was pleased with this version of my page. One thing I did notice is that the Vintage Overlay Texture 11 looks very different in MDS than in the PDF that is showing in this post. It looks more grainy and here it is more blended. The Downtown Grunge frame on the photo idea also was inspired by Erica on this PAGE.
I hope you let this week's challenge inspire you!
