Love and OUAS sketch challenge

Hi folks,

Just a quick post to share my entry for the Once Upon a Sketch challenge for February with the theme of love of course!! The entry has to be in by the 25th now so have just managed to sneak in!

I finally dragged out some of my favourite Prima papers (Pixie Glen) to use - ( i tend to hoard them for awhile !!) but the new releases are due in the shops this week and i need to make some room for the new lot of gorgeousness!

So this is the lovely sketch that we had to work on this month....



And this is my entry featuring the lovely Lucy who is not only adorable (mostly) but full of love and affection. She is a real sweetheart and brings so much to our family with her helpful and loving nature! I have journalled on a tag behind the photo....

Thanks for looking and for your lovely comments...

Back soon with some photos of the 10 year old!!! Zoe's birthday party- the big day is tomorrow!

Also my room is really coming together - thanks to Aunty Lyn and Uncle David for their help today - between Simon and I and our 2 fabulous helpers - the gib is up- the door is on and it looks like a real room!! and to Nana for watching the 3 little ones so i was free to help and not have constant interruptions!!  Photos below.... Very excited to see my scraproom coming along so well!!
