Once Upon A...Sketch

Here I am back again. I've finally been able to catch up on some of the challenges that I wanted to enter. This one is for Once Upon A.....Sketch  The theme this month is "My favourite month".

This is my layout about my favourite month of the year with a photo I took at Taronga Zoo a few months ago. This little guy was just hanging around begging me to take his photo :)  The journalling reads "October is my favourite month of the year. A time for fresh, new life. It's also the month when I became a Mum for the first time (all those years ago). A Spring baby; perfectly fresh & new."

I'm so glad that I can finally use these Manor House flowers that I've had for yonks. I've sprayed them with a bit of Glimmer Mist & Gesso as well. The page frame is from an old Websters Page which I thought went well will the KaiserCraft Base Coat paper. Take note of the little owl tag - I came across a pack of these in a little gift shop in London & of course couldn't resist because of the owl but also who doesn't love a tag or two? :) I'll be back in a little while with my entry for CSI #102.

  2. Beautiful layout Jo. I love that photo and the little birdhouse is just too sweet. I tried to see what your journalling said but couldn't... love the strips though :D Thanks for playing along with us at OUAS this month. Please load your layout on our OUAS FB page too.
