Once Upon a Sketch for June

Hi folks,

Hooray - managed to fit in some time today to get my Once Upon a Sketch challenge for June done. Cutting it pretty fine as the cut off is tomorrow!

This month the theme was guilty pleasures - i didn't have any photos of any of my guilty pleasures - hee hee! but then i thought i could probably get away with using a family photo taken at Tekapo when we took a sneaky holiday during term time- we took the girls out of school so that we could go away- so hence my title - Stealing Family time- i did feel a little guilty taking them out of school but it was worth it!

This was the sketch that we used this month...


And this is my effort this month.. lots of layering and gorgeous Prima flowers and vines - i even used my gesso and stencil and thought that i would use some of the free paper that i received with one of my scrapping magazines.



And here is a close up of the main cluster- i did my journalling on the tag at the top tucked behind the photo..


I did get some happy mail today - my prize for winning the C'est Magnifique sketch challenge for May.. lots of yummy goodies and a few extras that i bought !! Thank you CM!!


Thanks for visiting today...
