"Crate Paper" " Random" for Once Upon A...Sketch Nov 15 challege

Good afternoon to those who do me the pleasure of dropping by here on a Saturday.

I have been working today as we have a sale at our warehouse this weekend and the next.
We sell out at wholesale prices items that are almost sold out or may have a small damage that makes it impossible to sell them to our discerning customers.
But now I am back and I have a little share for you.

I am a little late posting my layout for Once Upon A...Sketch November 15th challenge,....But voilà, it is!

I have turned the sketch sideways and omitted half a circle to the side, but apart from that I have been pretty faithful to Nadia's beautiful sketch that you can see here together with the criteria:

                             November 15th Challenge

     Journalling criteria: This time the journalling criteria focuses on YOU as a woman 
                                    OR ANY female in your life.
                            What is the best thing about being a woman? 
                       Motherhood? Shopping? Make Up? Girls nights? Gossip? 
                   Your journalling can be as long as you wish and in any language, 
            but you must journal at least 2 sentences on the best part of being a woman.

                    You must combine the journalling criteria with this sketch.


               I used one of the new collections from "Crate Paper" for this.
                                      It is called "Random" 
                   and looks really pretty with all its quirky elemets.

                 I have some closeups of the embellishments etc for you.

  The beautiful ribbon with pearls and sequins I found at A Million Memories, and they have 
   been selling out a lot of their stock lately with a discount of 50%.I received a large box a 
  couple of weeks ago! The ribbon has a coral shade that is also found in the Crate papers.

               I used one of the dotted papers to die cut some pretty doilies. 
         I think I told you about my new "Cheery Lynn" dies that I bought online.'
                                      I am very happy with them.

     You will see some sweet little crocheted doilies peeking out from behing the flowers. 
  These shy creatures are a gift from the generous Leeann Pearce, who also happens to be
     one of our sponsors this month together with the Canadian kit club "Scrap That!"
As if that wasn't enough this inimitable scrap godess is also our guest designer this month.
                                       We are so happy to have her!!

        The journalling prompt this time is to focus on aspects of being a woman.
        I was going to do a lo about myself, but did not have any suitable photos.
        I used a photo of my eldest DD Alexandra, and scrapped a little about her 
                                      at this time in her life.

                    Feel free to take a look at the gorgeous projects from the DT 
                                       and guest artists over at OUAS
                         There are so many gorgeous takes on the sketch.
      And you might want to have a little peek at the awesome prizes we have for you!

                       We also have some new members of our design team;
    the super talented Maiko KosugiGoergia Heald and Larissa Albernaz. Welcome girls.

                           I think that covers it all,...If not I'll be back!!
