There Is Nothing So Lovely...My Take On a Shimelle Sketch

As you may know if you follow my blog, I like to combine inspiration from all over the web when I am making my pages! The ever-inspiring Shimelle posted this sketch on her blog over the weekend:
And I loved it...unique, using diagonal sections of paper-and I absolutely loved her take on it, as well as the stunning example by the fabulous Paige Evans. (Don't just take my word for it, check it out! Now!) Which reminded me of a fun challenge that Paige had given for a Scrap Your Stash video at 2Peas: Use up those Thickers (And Lord knows I need to do that, lol!) So, I took all of the inspiration floating around in my head and came up with this page:
(Some of those Thickers were a little loose/crooked, so I took them off and re-glued before putting the page in my album-but I forgot to re-photograph the LO, so you will have to use your imagination a tiny bit, lol!) I am quite happy with how this LO turned out! Linking up to the Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes challenge, and the Layout Love Linky on Soaphouse Mama's blog. And... this was the last page from my Evening Glamour Scrap Your Stash kit, so my next post will be about how I killed that kit ;-) ! Yay!
