This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Once Upon a Sketch - 15th January Challenge

Hi Everyone

Yesterday I was plagued with DSL issues in the neighbourhood and so could not access the internet at all.  It's amazing how reliant we become on this connectivity to the web and how frustrating it can be when it does not work! Luckily it did not last too long and I am back and connected today!

I have done a layout for the Once Upon a Sketch challenge and geepers, was it a challenge.  Sometimes one struggles to get the right look of the layout and I struggled with this one.  It took me a good 3 days to really get it finished. So take a look and see below.

And below is a close up of my journalling.

This page really was about reminding me that I want and intend to make time for the things and people I love.  I will really try to keep sight of my goals and dreams and make time to allow these to grow and develop.

List of materials used:
Glitz Design Paper and stickers - Beautiful Dreamer
Basic Grey Rub Ons and lettering
Prima Flowers
Upikit Rhinestones
Martha Stewart Punch
Creative Imaginations Leaves

Hope you have a great evening.
Take care
