Once Upon a Sketch..and Good News!!!

Hi! Today I have a little time to make two pages and I'm going to show you the one that I made for Once Upon a Sketch.  The Journalling  criteria is when you started scrapping and why?... and you must combine it with the sketch.   Well if you see my page I turned the sketch a little to the left  and the reason why I started scrapping is a little sad for me but I would like to share with all of you.


This is Nadia's sketch.



This is my journal I started scrapping four years ago in a Hard Time in my life...



More details of my page...


I took some photos during the night and honestly, I'm not good taking indoor photos but I think today is the last day for this challenge.   I used Bo Bunny, My Mind's eye papers that came in My Creative Scrapbook Kit of November..it's Gorgeous!!!




I also used Petaloo flowers, Glitz- Whatnot scarlett, Bazzill Chips-key, Kaisercraft- Wooden Flourishes.



Ohhh, I love this...make me laugh!!




Good News!!!!
I've been invited to be a Guest Designer for My Creative Scrapbook, again!!!  So excited when I saw my name HERE !!  and Congratulations to all the ladies that made the Guest Design Team!!! Yesss!!! I'm so happy to work with all these talented ladies!!!

So glad that you stop by and thanks for your lovely comments!  Until next time!!!
Take Care !!!
With Love!
Marilyn

  5. Hi Marilyn! I had no idea that was your story- it's really inspiring. I'm so glad you were able to over come such hardship and restart your business again- that's good news in itself. Congrats on the Guest Designer nod- that's awesome! LOVE this layout- I had no idea you shot it at night- the light is even over the whole page and there are not "hot spots" were the flash obscured your layout- fantastic indoor photo work!!
