Once Upon a Sketch.

Raining again, still depressingly autumnal weather, can't wait to go on Holiday !!

Still, had a lovely night yesterday, scrapping with my friends. I managed to finish a page I had started a while ago for Once Upon a Sketch. Here is the sketch..

And the challenge was to include a quote in the journaling. So here is my page..

I am happy with this page, although I can see the ribbon has already moved !! The journaling is about winning. I don't really understand why people keep on telling kids that it is the taking part that counts when in life, if you don't fight for everything and believe you can win, you don't get anywhere. I am very competitive, and so are my kids. It doesn't mean we are mean to others, it just means that we always thrive to do our best and are confident we can do most things.

The other things I made last night were two cards for the teachers. I also like them both and in fact, I like them so much, I will find it hard to give them away. I made the first one using a flower that was on one of my birthday cards.

And the second one was inspired by a card that Valerie made. I really loved the original and I am pretty impressed with the result, although the original was even better !!

That's it for today. Tomorrow I will show you pictures of my newly organised craft draws and boxes !! Someone I know will be impressed and won't call me the messiest scrapper in town anymore !! ( although we all know it won't stay tidy for long !! )

Take care
