Once Upon A Sketch – July

Posted by on July 6, 2014

Welcome back.. Again today I’ve been able to get into my craft room and get messy.. lol..
This time I’m keen to share with you my entry into the July Once Upon A Sketch challenge..

My entries into this challenge blog are few and far between… There is a reason for this though… It simply intimates me! Seriously, all of the creative team and the calibre of the entries every month totally blows my mind! Even though I don’t enter often, I do drop by several times a month to check out the awe-inspiring layouts!

Here is my layout.. This actually wasn’t the first base that I completed for this challenge, but thankfully before I stuck anything down I changed my mind and found this Kaiser Tea Party collection to use instead!

I am really quite proud of how it finally turned out! And I genuinely hope that I have done this challenge and the blog justice..

The main rules for OUAS is to follow the sketch and apply an extra.. The extra this month is to include NUMBERS in the Journaling..

I have chosen to hide my journaling as it is quite personal.. However you can see the top tab popping up from under the photo on the left…

You came into our lives and made our little family of two into three.. Then along came Hunter to make us four…I never really understood why older people referred to their partners a their “better half”.. But now I get it, we are the other half of each other, now we are together as one in this world..

I also thought using the scrabble tiles with the numbers on each letter for the title was a cute addition too! :)

The frame, flowers and pins finish off the embellishments for this layout..

I truly hope you’ve enjoyed viewing my layout and I thank you for your time allowing me to share this with you..
