All Grown Up Layout for Once Upon a Sketch

Haven't played along with Once Upon A Sketch it seems like ages! Their challenge fit right with a photo of the cousins and my two from smallest to biggest! Their theme this time 'round is growing!

I also managed to fit their sketch in by turning it on it's side.

I added a very small amount of journaling. Couldn't add too much more those kids are states away and I really don't get a chance to hang with them enough! Didn't want to have a nice cry all over my paper!

One of my favorite parts of my page is this vellum flower I made by hand. I LOVE IT! ;-)

Here is a cross section of my page. It's really kind of cool as you can see the bread twist banner I made with some mesh from onions! More photos of the bread twists later....I've been playing in the recycling in again!

Happy Monday!


  1. Bread twist banner, eh? Looks interested in how you did this! That photo is great....special times.... the older they get, the less likelihood of them getting together too, so it IS a special time & pic:)):)

  2. This looks wonderful.. great memories there I am thinking! wonderful handmade embellies too.. fabulous flower!!

  3. Love the pop of purple against the brown. The handmade vellum bloom looks great! Lovely photograph :)

  4. Love the background paper you used Mitra and the flowers are so effective against it. That photo is definitely one the youngsters will be pouring over in 30 years marvelling at how they've changed!

  5. Beautiful details and loving the white space!

  6. Fantastic layout! Your flower is beautiful and I love the onion bag and bread twist banner!! The yardstick paper is awesome too!


I LOVE comments. Come on. Leave me one. They make me smile!
