Once Upon A ... Sketch!

Hi there!
Happy 1st of July :-)! Hope everybody`s enjoying the Summer and having some fun!
Well, first day of the month and it`s time for my DT work at Once Upon A...Sketch challenge blog. Have I ever told you how much I enjoy being part of this awesome team and how much I enjoy working with the gorgeous sketches that our beautiful (inside & out) Nadia Cannizzo creates for us.....well, now you know :-)
This month we have a very sweet and so talented lady to guest-design for us....Karola Witczak. Please take the time and check her fabulous take on the sketch ------ > HERE
And of course our winners from our last challenge who are guest designers this month did an amazing take on the sketch: Jeni O`Connor, Sandi Taloumis and Cathy Cafun. You can see thier work -------> HERE

Journalling Criteria: Who is in the photo? Name the person in the photo and at least 1 fact about them. This can be personality, character, talent , achievement etc. but it must be at least 2 sentences long. 

Oh, and I`m so happy to announce that The Scrap Cake is sponsoring our winners this month....
Fantastic news, right? If you didn`t check The Scrap Cake blog so far please take the time and have a look at all the beautiful projects ------->HERE


And it`s time for my take on the sketch ;-) layout "Love You"
I decided to scrap a photo of my hubby  :-)....

The quote you see on the photo is rub-ons....

My journaling is hidden can pull the key out and here it`s all written thoughts how I feel about my hubby :-)....

This beautiful swirl frame is again rub-ons.....

All the big swirls you see on the layout are stamped by using Tattered Angels clear stamps. The chipboard comes from Tattered Angels as well....

Hope you enjoyed my long post ;-)!
Wishing you a wonderful day!
