Once Upon a Sketch- April

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick post today - i am knackered after not much sleep the last few nights and today had to beup at the crack of dawn to take Lucy to hospital to have her operation. She had her adenoids taken out and a second lot of grommets inserted in her eardrums. She was so brave and good- she must have been so sore and bewildered- after half an hour or so she was up and dressed and eating jelly and icecream and ready to go home! She was bright as a button this afternoon so we will see how she goes tomorrow when her throat especially may be sorer! As long as she is well for her birthday on Saturday! Busy day ahead- did all her shopping too- fun fun- she is going to love all her gifts! I bought her lots of arty stuff- canvases and paints and a huge art set- amongst other things!

Anyhoo- here is my layout for the April OUAS sketch - i used the beautiful Glitz Designs papers - Vintage Blue- they are soo pretty- one of my favourite lines from last year!

Here is the beautiful sketch- isn't it just gorgeous!

 And my take on the sketch- it looks yellower online but isn't in real life!! You had to use the sketch and also include the theme word HOME on your layout and of course do some journalling - mine was hidden behind my photo!

If you haven't had a look at their sketches - go on - take a peek they are all wonderful and i am really enjoying doing some sketches again!

Hey Francine! Thanks for playing along with us. I have now fixed up your link and it should be on the OUAS blog at the right hand side with the other entries. If you have any further problems please let me know.

Gorgeous colours you have used here. LOVE the picture as well. Your girl sounds very brave after her operations. Quite often I think they are stronger than us!! I hope she is doing well :) Take care!! xoxo Nadia.

Gorgeous layout and great take on the sketch. Super colours.

Hope Lucy has recovered well from her surgery.

My little GS got home yesterday and is getting better every day. Thanks for your comments on my blog.
