pink lake

Happy Monday - another new week ☺
I had a go at the latest challenge from Once Upon a ... Sketch - it's all about holidays or vacations!
For something a little different, I decided to go with a scenery photo, rather than people.
Here's my LO:
 This place is a holiday spot of many wonderful memories - we have been to this place many, many times and we are still enjoying it!!
My background paper is from Delish -  Dulwich Collection - and I've given it some 'ink treatment'.  And I've used lots of different things on this page - here are some close-up's:
 ... a hand-made bloom - this is made by me - I made it white but used glimmer mist to change the colour to suit my page ...some crochet trim and a little birdie button ...
 ... a stem of blooms - this is actually from a larger stem of faux flowers that I got in a discount store - they are perfect for scrap booking ☺...
 ... another tag - I can't seem to make a LO without them ☺ - and my journalling which I've attached to the tag.
... and here is the sketch to work with the challenge: - a very fun one too!!

...now more about the hand-made blooms - I've been creating a bunch of them and wanted to share them as a preview - they will be available in my clearance sale on Friday - I've made them in white and as you can see, they are easy to mist with inks so you can customize them for your LO's.

Hope you like ♥☺♥
I'm nearly ready to share a picture of my give away, so I will be back soon.
Thanks for coming by!!
