April 1st OUAS Blog Hop! About "Home" Using Prima Almanac





Welcome to Once Upon A..Sketch' s first birthday blog hop! It is so exciting to have you here and we hope you are inspired along the way to join in the fun and get creative!!You should have arrived here from LG's blog, but if you haven't you need to go back to the beginning of the list below so you don't miss out.


(please note that due to time differences there could be some broken links..please check back later as the blogs will be updated asap) 



Our new MONTHLY challenge has just been released! Each Design Team member has created their own  layout based on this sketch and journalling criteria and you need to follow the above list to see what they came up with. 

We would love to see what you create, so please link your project to back at the Once Upon A...Sketch blog. You DO NOT have to participate in the blog hop to enter this challenge. 


Here is this month's challenge....


April Challenge

 The theme of this challenge is HOME. 

We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "HOME" however you like based on the following sketch. You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must incorporate this theme  and this sketch. 

And here is my example...

I chose to journal about how I love that our home is a large house in the country and that our village has a spirit of it's own, with traditions and many nice things. I have more journaling on the back.



I will share some close ups and maybe a step by step in a day or two.



And look at this gorgeous main prize:


 Imaginarium Designs
Imaginarium Designs chipboard is donating this prize to one lucky winner of the blog hop.

  36. Uuunderbara foton från valborg! det är verkligen mysigt när man känner sina grannar och har den där speciella sammanhållningen som bara finns på en liten ort. Så fint med det svarta och persikorosa, pärlbandet och den gröna spetsen och den svart tyll/spetsblomman längst ned till höger. Tack söta du för mailet! ligger grymt efter med allting som inte har med skapande att göra, gjorde 8 sidor på 3 dagar och hjärnan är som potatismos just nu. Hälsa familjen puss puss

  100. Can't remember if I commented here or not & now there are HUNDREDS of comments LOL! Just wanted to say that I love that you have recorded such a fun mix of photos & love the idea of a friendly village. Here we don't even get to know our neighbours. Everyone is very unfriendly :( Wanted to tell you that I bought those leaves from Petaloo, which is difficult to find in the US as I think they are Australian (you commented on the velvety leaves on Facebook) so I placed an order with a WA store, Handmade by Suzanne, and it went VERY WELL - postage was a good price & it only took a week to get to me - RIGHT across the FULL width of the Indian ocean...not too shabby!!
