she said..

 This lovely couple are my parents!!  And I chose this wonderful picture to create a LO for Once Upon a... Sketch - the added criteria is to use song lyrics as your journalling - that was the hard part for me.  But I asked my mum about her favourite artists and she said angus & julia stone - so I've printed out some journalling from the song big jet plane (which I love too).
This LO came together so nicely - I've used some beautiful papers by Bo Bunny - I don't usually use pattern papers in the background, but these really suited the b&w photo!
Here are some close-up's:

 ... some chipboard by Dusty Attic, trinkets from Bo Bunny, crochet doily, hand-made paper flower and curled raffia...
 ... some of the printed journalling and chipboard letters by Bo Bunny!
And here is the sketch:
I'll have quite a few LO's to share over this next week (if time allows)  Over the past weekend I attended the Handmade by Suzanne Scrap Retreat and managed to create quite a few LO's!!  Had a great weekend at a lovely location with lots of lovely ladies!!

This is just beautiful and what a wonderful idea to ask your mum her favourite song. I just love how you have used pp this time. You should do it more often. Just gorgeous.
And lucky you going on the retreat. Can't wait to see more.
And P.S. Funny about your boys being the same size too. I think we are pretty lucky...
