"Once Upon A ...Sketch" and "Get Creative"

Hi there!
Happy February to you all!

Over at "Once Upon A ...Sketch", we are nearing the end of our first year and during this time we have noticed a huge amount of support from many countries around the world and we are incredibly lucky that our challenges are supported by so many people from all different parts on the globe. One of these countries is Greece, and we have come to realize that we receive many entries from such a small country where scrapbooking is so new, so we had a think and decided to team up with another challenge blog based in Greece and ran by our very own Irini Liolia called "Get Creative". How exciting! We decided to become "sister" blogs, because let`s face it .....most of us scrapping are women and is there anything stronger than a sisterhood?
So for this month only, The Design Team from "Once Upon A ...Sketch" are guests over at "Get Creative" challenge blog and taking their part in their 1st and 15th go the month challenges and the Design Team from "Get Creative" are guests on "Once Upon A ...Sketch"! Thus a new bond is formed between 2 challenge blogs.

Here is the sketch that the "Once Upon A ...Sketch" Design Team had to follow and the one my layout is based on. It is created by "Get Creative" DT member Elina Catchy
And here is my take on Elina`s sketch....
  • I masked and stamped inside the circle
  • The two photos were matted using Clean&Simple pattern paper from "Sunday Picnic"

  •  The awesome chipboard title "Funny Face" is from Imaginarium Designs (IDP 0001). My son Alexander is such a Funny Face - perfect title for these photos :-)
  • I used two colors Glimmer Glam to paint the chipboard phrase.

Please head on over to the "Get Creative" blog to see what the rest of the Design Team created and to find out what prizes, etc. are up for grabs and then visit "Once Upon A ...Sketch" to see the February 1st Challenge.

Happy Scrapping!!!
