Just wanted to share my very first layout of 2013! This one is for the January Once Upon a Sketch challenge. I wasn't sure about the sketch at first but am really happy with how it came out!
I used some of the new Marigold collection from Kaisercraft- love the greens and blues together and all the fussy cutting options with the lovely flowers.
The theme for the sketch this month reflects the new year and changes - so i decided to focus on Ella and what a big year that it will be for her in Year 4. She is such a quiet achiever but i am sure that she will blossom this year with being the senior class in her syndicate and the more responsibilities that will await her this year. She can do anything she sets her mind to!
Already she seems to be growing up before my eyes- she will be 8 in a couple of months! She has been asking to have her own room for a few months now so yesterday we moved her into her very own room! She has had to share with Zoe and then with Lucy for the last few years so its time for her to have her own space! So Hollie and Lucy are in together and Ella can stay up abit later now and relax in her own space!
Anyhoo- here is my version of the sketch...with some hidden journalling tucked on the left hand side of the top photo...
And here is the sketch
It looks like i may have scored the room as a scrap studio albeit with conditions!! It will still be a few months away till completion i imagine now that Simon is back at work...
Thanks for all your lovely comments on my previous post- i appreciate each and every one!!
Enjoy your day
