MDS Blog Hop - A New Desktop for My Laptop

Hello and happy 2014!
I have a feeling that this is going to be a wonderful year -- and I hope that it is for you, too.
If you've been following the hop you've just come from Elizabeth's blog. Isn't she wonderful? It's hard to follow someone so talented!

Our first "assignment" for the MDS Blog Hop this year was to design either a computer desktop image or an iphone background. I got a new laptop a few months ago so this was the perfect project for me!

First, I figured out the pixel dimension of my screen then created a custom size image in MDS with the same dimensions. Then -- Ready, Set, Design! And this is what I came up with...

My computer's desktop is a hot mess, let me tell you. Most of what I do everyday is done on this computer and I keep everything important on my desktop. But there was no organization to it at all. Sure, I could just put them in those ugly files, but why would you do that when you can add a little kraft and bling to it with MDS? The background is from Downtown Grunge kit, the doodled frames are from the Hello Perfection digital class. I also used the Bright Blooms kit and the Basic Pearls and Rhinestones kit. I'm so happy with how it turned out! I just hoped my desktop icons would fit.

I changed my laptop's desktop image to my new image and arranged all of my icons to fit in my new frames. Everything fit and there is some room for growth!

That's my project for today - I hope you liked it! And now you get to follow the hop and see what the always fabulous Jeanna has waiting for you - just click on the "NEXT" image below!
