Once Upon A Sketch............

Good morning

I am super thrilled to announce that I have been made a permanent Guest Designer over at Once Upon A Sketch! Wooo Hoooo.

You all know how much I LOVE working from sketches so this is a total dream role for me. I am so happy Nadia and the team have invited me and I love all of Nadia's amazing sketches!

Each month, Once Upon A Sketch releases two sketch's for you to have a go at and they have great journaling prompts to get some words on your page!
There are some amazing prizes up for grabs and you have nothing to loose by giving it a go!
This week, the sketch is just gorgeous!

Journalling Criteria : your journalling has to be a quote (handwritten, printed, rub on etc. ). As an option you can include journalling in the lines on sketch but this is not necessary.

This is my take on the sketch ....

I have used some new papers by Simple Stories, Imaginarium Designs Chipboard, Prima, Green Tara flowers and a new Tim Holtz flower die by Sizzix!

Check out these great Prizes up for offer this week .....

We have a BRAND new sponsor and a VERY exciting one as well.
Please welcome to Once Upon A...Sketch...

Most of our Design Team members were SO lucky to receive some of these packs to work with for this challenge! Just look at how BEAUTIFUL these flowers look on their work above!

Here is the prize up for grabs from Manor House Creations for one lucky person voted by the Design Team as the winner of this challenge!
A pack of their latest release flowers.
