Dare To Be Sassy Thursday #63 - Being Green

It's Thursday and you know what that means.... Another Dare To Be Sassy Thursday over at Sassy Studio Designs! I have been a tad negligent with my design team duties this week due to the loss of my beloved cat on Monday. I was by her side in the end and that's of some comfort. Though Loki's absence is painfully felt, I have 2 other fur babies and my son, of course, to keep the smiles coming! Because that's what life is all about anyway, isn't it? :)

The challenge for DTBST #63 - Being Green is to use something recycled on your project. I opted for an empty Godiva chocolates box like the one pictured below. I received the yummy confections for Valentine's Day and happened to save the empty box after the last of them had been enjoyed. I wasn't sure what I was going to use it for, but I knew there would be something!

Did you also notice my fabulous image?! This is a sneak peek of one of the new images from the upcoming SSD release this weekend! It's Megara, the sassy, smart-mouthed heroine from the animated Hercules! I love mythology so this was a fun image for me to work with! I used Sketch #144 from Friday Sketchers as the layout of my easel card front. For embellishments, I added sequin trim, some pearl flourishes I found on clearance recently, the mini roses I love so much these days, and a computer generated sentiment containing a quote of Meg's from the movie.

We all have items laying around our homes that we can put to use in our creations... Take a look and see what inspires you. And once you have finished, link it here to play along with SSD for a chance to win some images of your choice!

I have a busy couple of days ahead of me, and crafting will be a big part of that so be sure to check back! Thanks for stopping by!
