Once Upon A... Sketch

Hi there!
It`s such a pleasure to present our October, 1st sketch  at Once Upon A ...Sketch. It`s a special month for us because it`s our 6th month anniversary ...YAY!
Like every month our so talented Nadia Cannizzo created for us this so inspiring sketch.

Journalling Criteria: WRITE  2 noteworthy (to you anyway) events of the past week. Your journalling can be as long as you wish. There is NO limit to how much journalling you include but in order to qualify as a winner for this challenge, we must see AT LEAST 1 SENTENCE of journalling on WHY each event was noteworthy. 
And this is my take on Nadia`s sketch.
My journaling is about the last weekend I spent in Belgium at the "Scraptastic Event". I met there lots of online friends and because hubby joined me that weekend it was a double joy for me.
On the photo I`m with sweet Donna Downey ...
I used Melissa Frances pattern papers for this page. I cut out the shape, hand-stitched, I stamped the background (the black swirls)......
The three beautiful flowers you see are from Manor House Creations.....

The photo frame with birds is an Imaginarium Designs chipboard and you can see it ----> HERE
The bird with the key was stamped and colored in with Copic Markers and water pencils. I stamped it twice and cut it out. I used foam tape to give more dimension.... The stamp I used is from LaBlanche....

There are really some awesome prizes this month from our Sonsors. For more information please visit the following link so you can cheek all the prizes ---------> HERE

I hope you enjoyed my layout today and I hope to see you playing along with us this fortnight!

Have a great Sunday!
