We will be offering a random Grand Prize for one participant.
Participants can get their name in for the Grand Prize by:
1) becoming a follower of Sassy Lil' Sketches,
2) leaving a comment on each of the DT's Blog,
or 3) by doing the "Going Green" Challenge and linking it to Mr. Linky at http://www.sassylilsketches.blogspot.com/ by 9 P.M EST on Sunday, March 14th. If you do all 3, then you will get your name into the Grand Prize random drawing 3 times! :)
If you've just popped in here directly without coming from Jess Bree's blog you might want to go to Sassy Lil' Sketches to start from the beginning and see all the great LOs that the DT have prepared!
So here's the blog hop sketch, another great one made by Cherie Averill!
And here's my take on it. It's Lydford Gorge in England. I went "green" (easy for me, it's my favorite color, and I've got tons of green pp!) I also "reduced" somewhat... well, at least for the paper part of the layout! I used some old Bohemia and Signature Suite from MME, some of it from 2006. I also have some old K&Co in there. I used some old flocked alphas from the dollar store too. There were cream colored, well actually more like a dirty white! I was playing around with inking them in some way to make them match better (used up a few Z's and X's that way!). I was trying to decide which of two colors of distress ink would work better, when I realized I like the two-toned effect! I then popped some of the letters for more dimension. I'm pleased with how the title turned out! There will be a companion page to this one, and that's where my journaling will be.
Well, now that you've taken a peek here, please head on to the next blog, and visit Brenda's creation here!
Happy hopping and happy scrapping!
