So I participated in the CSN giveaway contest at Sassy Lil' Sketches. You had to find an item in their stores and use it as inspiration for a LO using a Sassy sketch. So I used the February 28th sketch:
and this peacock dish:
to make this layout:
It's Scone Palace in Scotland. Its emblem is the peacock, so when I saw that pretty (but expensive... 499$!!) peacock dish, I immediately thought of Scone! It's a great castle, complete with an old cemetary, a giant hedge maze, highland cattle (those cute, long-haired cows!), and of course, a few peacocks roaming the grounds!
I got to use my old Blue Hill Crate Paper that has peacocks on it. I stamped swirls on the pinkish cardstock with Versamark ink and embossed with clear powder. And did I mention that I love glimmer mist!!! I didn't have a trim that matched my LO, so I used some cream-colored dollar store trim and misted it with "Patina" glimmer mist. It matched perfectly! I also used the same color with the title on the new Heidi Swapp IR-RESIST-IBLE Alphas. I added a few Zva bling swirls and flowers (and a little dragonfly... I love butterflies and dragonflies lately!) to complete the LO!
I'll be back in a week or so with my next Sassy reveal! (Unless I really get the mojo going and make another LO before that! ;) )
