I am very excited and honoured to share with you that along with the rest of the Scrapbook Fantasies Design Team I am a Guest Designer over at Once Upon A Sketch this month. The challenge each month at Once Upon A Sketch is based on a theme and a matching sketch created by the very talented Nadia Cannizzo. I enjoy the challenges at Once Upon A Sketch because they are not just about trying to follow a sketch, they make you journal and work to a theme.
The theme this month is: Mum
And this is the sketch:
TWO ribbon packs (for two winners), each valued at over $40 (Australian) and containing 71 half metre lengths of ribbons, trims and lace in shades of pink, brown, cream and gold from quality brands such as Prima, Maya Road, Websters Pages, May Arts, Vandoros, Green Tara and Birch Australia. The prize also includes international postage.
This is the layout I created with the theme and the sketch:
I created my layout about my Mum and how much I cherish and appreciate the relationship we have built together. Anyone who has known me for a long time will know that I was a Daddies girl until the sudden passing of my dear Father in 1999. It took time (several years) but his passing has brought Mum and I closer than we already were.
