Once Upon A...Sketch

Although I always say 'I must journal more of the little details' on my LO's, I don't always follow through, so that's why I was determined to do the 1st June challenge at Once Upon a...Sketch, as it gives me the kick in the bum I need! LOL The challenge was to not only use the sketch provided (see it HERE), but to also journal at least 2 sentences about the female in the photo.

Here's my take on the challenge - 'Quad Bike Riding', using the yummy new My Minds Eye 'Lime Twist - Happy Go Lucky' pps I got from Handmade By Suzanne...


For my journaling, I decided to see how it would print using the yummy MT masking tape and I was pretty happy with the result (it just takes a little longer for the ink to dry than it does on regular masking tape). If you haven't tried using washi tape before, check out the awesome range available at HBS HERE (they are currently on sale at 25% off!)


For the embellishments on this LO, I had a dig through my stash and decided to use up the last of my Kaisercraft 'Bubblegum Hills' chipboard flowers (which you can still get for around $2 / pack if you're quick) and a couple of butterflies cut from pp of the same range. I also used Green Tara mini flowers (still love these!), The Twinery bakers twine, and 'Sea Mist' satin ribbon. The large alphas are AC 'Rainboots - Aqua' Thickers (another item you could snap up 25% off!) and the small ones are MME 'Happy Go Lucky - Together'.


There will be LOTS more My Minds Eye to come...I am sooooo lovin' these new ranges!!!
