It's reveal day at My Creative Sketches, and here is my DT layout inspired by this month's lovely sketch below.

I used a mix of papers from Prima Marketing, Kaisercraft and My Mind's Eye - isn't it great that they can be combined so wonderfully together? The floral clusters are also a mix of flowers from Prima Marketing and Petaloo, so as you can probably tell, this layout is all about combining the various collections from the different brands.

The photos were from our Cambodia trip last year, where we visited the amazing temple ruins of Siem Reap, some like Ta Prohm overgrown with trees that soar skywards.

I water-distressed the papers, giving the layout some added texture, and inked the edges with distress ink for definition. The layout is then given added dimension by using pop-up foam dots for the photos and texts.

Here are some close-ups.

Now hop on over to the MCS blog for more inspiration, and at the same time check out the awesome prize that's been put together for this month's lucky winner.

Thanks so much for dropping by, and I'm looking forward to seeing all your lovely layouts! :)
