Challenge Entry: Once Upon a Sketch - November 1 2011

Here's my take on the latest OUAS sketch.

Journalling Criteria: This time you need to journal at least 2 SENTENCES on WHEN you started scrapping and WHY?

I started scrapping back in college, but at that time I literally used scraps to embellish my pages.  After I have finished school and started working, I didn't have much time on my hands anymore so I had to give up scrapping for a while.  It was only after I have met my hubby that I have reacquainted with the craft.  The eureka moment was that trip to Palawan in 2006, our first travel destination as an official couple! :)


Close up on the details - title and journaling.




Here's the LO recipe.
DP Base: Pebbles New Addition Adorable
DP : Pebbles New Addition Cutie Pie
Ribbon: American Crafts
Rhinestone Title: Me and My Big Ideas


Here's the original sketch.

I am also submitting my layout to the Bingo Challenge at Craft Your Passion.  I chose Flowers-FREE-Bling.




It's me,
