its just abc

Just sharing a page I did for the Once Upon a ..... Sketch challenge - this month they have four challenges and have joined up with Colour Stories Inspiration ☺  This LO is for Challenge #2:


 The colour scheme caught my eye straight away - I love it and I had some papers in my collection that matched wonderfully.  Most of the papers are from Authentique - Celebrate collection.   I've also added in some touches of Hambly.  And I love this recent photo of my boys - along with the journalling, it reflect the stage in life we are at with them. Here are some close-up's:
 ... my title ties in with the journalling A - adventurous B - busy C - colourful - have used American Thickers for the abc and the little letters are from Fancy Pants - Little Sport collection ... there are some circles in the background as part of the evidence.
 ... mini rosette - Tim Holtz die - my all time favourite ☺ - the black doily is a wooden flourish which I inked with black ink and then stamped with white ink using a pattern stamp ...
 ... some of the background texture and also a Hambly label - part of the evidence ...
... another mini rosette and label ... my journalling is spread out over the page as part of the testimony ...

So there you have it - case solved and a sketch completed - fun challenge - I especially love these colours together.  Thanks for coming by and hello to my newest followers ☺

I was waiting to see what you created....and it is just fabulous. The colours look so bold and love your details for the sketch. Great pic of the boys too (and colour co-ordinated for this palette....lol). How did you get them to all stand there and pose so nicely....bribery????...lol.
Great page.
