Challenge Entry: Once Upon a Sketch - December 1 2011

Here's my take on the latest challenge at Once Upon A... Sketch.

The photos I showcased on my LO where taken last year during our family holiday dinner at the Spiral Restaurant of Hotel Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila.  And working on this LO made me a bit emotional.  I really miss my family.  Especially this year that we're not coming home to Manila for the holidays.

Here goes my LO project I titled Celebrate Family.

Close up on the title.

The journalling reads.

"Christmas is the best time to reconnect with the family.  And so this is what I look forward to during this season.  It's just sad that we won't be coming home this year to celebrate the holidays with our loved ones.  But I am sure we will be missed."

Base and DPs: TPC Studios (Timeless Christmas Wreaths, Timeless Christmas Poinsettia, Timeless Christmas Stripes)
