Once Upon A Sketch ....

The newest challenge is up at Once Upon A  Sketch .... but this time ... there's a twist ....
What's the twist?....

We thought it would be fun for you all out there to pick the winner! This challenge will end on the 29th of September, which is 2 weeks from today and you will all have a chance to vote for the winner and Top 5 projects for one whole day on the 30th of September before the new challenge is posted on the 1st of October.

The catch here is that everyone can only vote 1 time, but of course you can get everyone you know to vote for you! We just can't wait to see who you will pick!

So here's the Sept. 15th Challenge!

Journaling Criteria: This time you need to journal 2 lines directly on your photo. You can write on your photo, you can print your writing on your photo, you can use journalling strips on your photo etc. There is no theme this time, just a journaling technique criteria.

 Simply follow the journaling criteria and the sketch by Nadia,the lovely owner and creator, of OUAS challenge site.

The sketch

Here is my take on this great sketch ....

I used my favourite papers at the moment - Prima's new Printery Collection is just GORGEOUS plus I used some Imaginarium Designs Chipboard of course! The gorgeous Tatum Woodroffe took this photo of me back in June when we went to Brisbane - Thanks Tatum
