Sassy Studio Masquerade Ball

Hi and welcome to the Sassy Studio Masquerade Ball blog hop! If you just came from Rebecca's fabulous blog, you are in the right place. If you just popped in here by chance you will want to start on the SSD blog, so you won't miss out (there might be freebies involved).


Lindsay has masked up some very popular SSD images for us today. We are having a blog hop today as well as some chat times in the party room, fun on PCP and a challenge with a HUGE prize.


My card uses the Princess Masquerade image. Isn't she pretty? Would you like to have her? Keep reading, she will soon be yours! I used a great sketch from Willow Sketchie Challenge blog.




At each stop along the hop, there will be a free image for you to grab! How cool and generous of Lindsay! Just double click on the image to get better resolution and then save to your computer. Make sure and get it while you can, it will only be available for free until Sunday night. Free image now removed, available in the SSD store for sale.


Make sure you also leave a comment on each stop. Each of the DT will pick one random commenter to win an unreleased image from the upcoming Halloween release. Your next stop on the hop is the super talented Julie.


Hope to see you sometime later in the chat room or on PCP today. And since you are getting all these cool Sassy images free today, why not enter one of our challenges for a chance to be a guest design team member?
