Just dropping in to share my entry for the Once Upon a sketch challenge for August. Man - am powering through them this month - helps having my regular Friday night crops back- i get so much more done! And only just over 3 weeks till the Scrappin Patch retreat - a whole weekend of scrapping fun with loads of friends. Can't wait!
Anyhoo - the theme of this month was 'I remember' when - my title was Remember this - which i hope is close enough! My journalling is on a tag tucked behind the photo as usual!
This layout features a lovely photo of the lovely Ella - at our annual Mid Winter Xmas party. We go all out with decorations up - the Xmas tree up, Simon has lights and blow up toys up in the house - will add a few photos at the end! We have a gift each from Santa for the kids - to "Keep up the good behaviour!" too. We always have our dear friends - who are like family- Jo, Kelvin and Callum over for the meal and always a flaming Xmas pudding amongst other treats! This year we even did a gingerbread house which will definitely be added as an annual treat too! Its all about creating happy memories for our kids!
Anyway here is the sketch
And here is the layout - i didn't go for Xmas colours at all - and since i had been using the very colourful Blast Off collection for my previous three layouts i went more grungy for this one....
Back to share some of those colourful Blast Off layouts in the next few days...
Have added some midwinter Xmas party photos for you too! Some of you may have seen these on Facebook - but here they are for you people that don't 'DO' facebook!
