Once Upon A Sketch March 15th. "Miss You" "Perfume de Camélias".

Due to a business trip to Milan I am a bit late in posting about our latest challenge over at OUAS.

I cannot believe it has been a week since my last post!!
I just sent my layout to Nadia and will do a quick share here of the challenge and my new page.

 I used the shabby collection from Les Papiers de Pandore and it is called "Perfume de Camélias"

The journalling criteria was to do a page about someone you miss. In our family we miss Alexandra, who is away abroad to attend university.

My journaling is simple and says;
It has now been six months since you went away to start university in the UK.
Here at home we all miss you a lot,but we are lucky that you are not too far away for us to be able to go and visit you!

The photos were taken in France on holiday a couple of years ago.

March 15th Challenge

Journalling Criteria:   Finish this line "I miss...". 
 Tell us about someone you are missing right now and why. Your journalling can be as long or as little as you like, but we want to hear all about someone you are missing!

Ideas for journalling: missing time alone with your partner, missing your old self, missing your children because they are off to school, university or living away from you, missing your children being young, missing a friend you have not seen in a while, someone in another country, someone that has passed away, a mentor whose advice you could use, a relative you wish you lived closer to, someone you regret having an argument with, missing a pet

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..
To read all the fine print and to see the examples of the designers and guests  please head over to OUAS HERE.

As I promised; just a short post.
Enjoy the rest of your week end!!
