She ~Once Upon A ... Sketch~

Hi there!
Can you believe it? It`s already June.....I know I say it always but I`ll repeat it once again.....Time flies, surely for me :-)
Another month and another inspiring sketch from the beautiful Nadia Cannizzo created for Once Upon A ...Sketch challenge blog.


Our JOURNALLING CRITERIA this time is to journal about a female. It can be ANYONE...your self, your best friend, your daughter,grandma, mum, sister, cat. ...As long as you write at least 2 sentences about the female in the photo (you can always create a CARD or ALTERED item based on this sketch and use a quote instead)
Things to consider when playing along... 

**This is an international blog, so anyone can enter 
**You are allowed to create a card, layout or off-the-page item based on the provided sketch and additional journalling criteria. If you are creating a card or altered item you only need to include a quote. 
**You are also allowed to flip or rotate the sketch or alter it to suit your needs, but please make sure its still recognisable. 
**Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery and link it on our right sidebar using the Link tool. Please provide a direct link to your post, not your entire blog.If the link tool is down, please leave a comment on the comments section and link your layout there. 
** The deadline for this challenge is midnight June 14th. The Design Team will vote and the winner and the Top 5 projects will be announced soon after the challenge has finished. 
**You may enter as many times as you like and combine this with other challenges.

And not to forget to mention that we have such yummy prizes ..... from ~WEBSTER`S PAGES ~ ....Yeah, how cool is that?!? You can check for more info ----------> HERE

And now it`s time to share my take on the sketch! This is my mum on the photo and I must admit I`m scrapping a photo of hers for the first time.
I used GCD pattern papers for my project. 
The alphas and the swirls are from Imaginarium Designs and I love them :-)

In the end I want to share three close-ups of the projects I was working during the last week....

Wishing you a wonderful sunny day!
And Thank you sincerely for your visits!
