In March, i went to stay with a friend in Oxfordshire and we visited Blenheim Palace. We loved it there and had a grand time exploring the grounds and getting lost in the maze! i'd highly recommend it for a day out if you're ever in that area.

i have to say, this is the most FUN i've had creating a layout in a long time. Which is saying a lot, because it's always fun. i think because i got a bit techniquey, it felt more like playing. i sprayed the vintage lace with mist to make it that light shade of pink. i use mist in this way so much these days, i wonder how i ever scrapbooked without it. And i enjoyed creating the ice cream cone too. i used a Studio Calico herringbone stamp to make the 'cone' and i double embossed a cloud chipboard piece with Zing! to create the 'ice cream'. Then i just glued some beads on for the 'sprinkles'. i was glad to get a different use out of the cloud chipboard piece. i think i'll be making a cupcake out of one next :) If you have any other ideas on how to use them, please comment and let me know!
