Once Upon A...Sketch

Wohoo, Now it's time for my half of the designteam to get rolling!!

The first challenge was a massive success!
We received more than 100 entries from all over the world, which is amazing indeed!

This is what I have come up with for the challenge at Once Upon A...Sketch.

I used papers from my DT kit from Your Scrapbook Stash . The collection is "Fancy Pants" "The Little Things".
They are lovely and for those who loved Echo Park"For The Record" they are perfect.

And here you can see the great sketch that Nadia created for us:

It is really lovely and versatile.

I decided to turn it on the side to better accomodate my two photos.
Here you have a few close ups:

In the next picture those who understand Swedish can read my journaling.
It is about Beatrice and me enjoying a beautiful Spring day outside. We were planting and repotting and Beatrice was doing so well. She could do it all by herself.

 In the little envelope I have included a little message from my daughter.

 I did some paper pleating to add some texture. I even used red paint dabber and mist in the colour of Earl Gray. I scattered buttons across the little envelope from Maya Road, and glued them down. Of course I made sure that I can still open it!

If you go HERE you can see the new challenge that just went live!
Head on over and check it out.

Take care!
