Welcome To My 1st Southern Girls Challenge Post

Welcome to my very first post as a "Southern Girl" for Southern Girl Challenges.  
 
This week the challenge is to use your Dies and or Punches to create something wonderful and then Link up that project to our site... Wonderful prizes are available to be won as well as badges for your blog with bragging rights if you are selected by the design team as one of the top 5 (smile).  You will have until April 1st to come play and don't forget, no more that nine other link ups to qualify for the prize draw.

Here is my creation for this challenge.  
I was planning on creating a card for this challenge but the project took on a life of it's own... and since I have been saving this photo for many years, waiting for the perfect inspiration, When Inspiration hit I Followed!
Inspiration was provided by this brand new Tattered Lace die designed by Stepanie Weightman for which I paid CRAZY money.
But when I cut out several images using my precious foil paper,  (precious because I cannot find it anywhere anymore and my hoard is getting smaller and smaller) and then reassembled the peacock on some Bazzil shimmery cardstock, and then filled the spaces with microfine glitter sealed with CTMH Liquid Glass... a card just wasn't a Big Enough project... but my Dance Photo WAS!
The paper and quotes all came from a Quick Quotes layout kit that I have been hoarding for more than five years.  I fussy cut out the flowers, layered them using foam tape and added Ranger's Liquid Pearl and Stickles to accent the flower centres.  
After waiting so long so scrapbook this photo I am Over-the-Moon pleased with how this layout turned out and I hope it will provide some inspiration for you to create something with some dies or punches and join in on our challenge over at the Southern Girls Challenge Blog.  So come and see what all my fellow design team members on Team Trace created and come PLAY! 
Thanks for popping by to see my latest creation and please do leave me a comment if you like what you see!
Cheers, Scrapbook Lynne Mizera

    1. So nice of you to check on me Gail - (hugs) I have been Flat-on-my-Back Sick for the past 12 days and I am finally out of bed and beginning to move around again... a really bad cold that weakened my immune system and then I got the flu! But I am up and around again and you will see me again soon! I will be visiting you too to see what I have missed ...Smile
