Celebrate - Designed for Once Upon A Sketch: April 1st Challenge

I really love this sketch ... but the designers challenge scared me to death!  Handwritten journaling ... at least 25 words!  YIKES!  Anyone who knows me, knows that I do ALL of my journaling on the computer ... ALL of it ... it's a very rare LO that has anything handwritten on it ... even a date is rare in my world ...

Since I'm trying to 'scrap outside the box' I decided to push myself to tackle this challenge ... I LOVE my page, but I'm not totally sold on the journaling piece ... I'm gonna leave it and see if it grows on me though ...

without further adieu, here's the inspiration sketch:

Here is what I came up with ... comments are always welcomed ... TFL!


  1. Love all the color and details!
    Thanks for playing along with us!

  2. Hehehe! Well...there's a first time for everything so I'm glad you gave handwriting a go! LOL! Thats what challenges are for after all right? Like you said "creating outside the box!" You have done an awesome job with the sketch and LOVE your colours and whole theme of your layout! Great take on the sketch too :o)

  3. Hope you get to journal more in that wonderful handwriting of yours! Thanks so much for joining us at OUAS!

  4. Love your take on the sketch and fabulous journalling too! Gorgeous colours together and such a bright happy LO!
    Lou xx

  5. Compliments, your layout is very beautiful! Thank for play with us

  6. It looks beautiful!!! I often have a hard time with journaling spots too..///sometimes I journal around the outside edge of the page and it sort of makes a border at the same time. You have such nice handwriting it would be a shame not to show it in your books more often!
