A double & OUAS .....

So last night I taught a Boys class in at work.

I LOVE these new papers from My Minds Eye and designed some Imaginarium Design Chipboard especially for this double page!

These two little boys are such a delight to work with, Tate & Ashton - although I cant tell which one is which! :)

Also, yesterday was the launch of the newest challenge over at Once Upon A Sketch ...

March 1st Challenge

Journalling Criteria/Theme:
All About Me!

The focus of your journalling and the theme of your layout has to be based on YOU and something/s that you are really good at. Don't be shy! We are all good at something as small or as big as it might be.

Remember that you are allowed to also create a card or altered project based on this sketch and theme and instead of the journalling criteria you need to use a quote.

You MUST combine our journalling criteria with this sketch..
 Here is my take on the sketch.

My page has been inspired by the super talented Melinda Spinks - I saw she did something similar 
with Kraft and changed it up to suit this sketch.
