Once Upon A Sketch

When I first started scrapbooking I used alot of CM products and thier sketch designs, you know the ones that came on the cardboard when you order a paper pack. I then progressed to Becky Fleck and Becky Higgins sketches. Using sketches are so much fun and can be quite challenging as you don't want it to look exact so helps get the creative juices going.

This is my first sketch challenge in a while. Once Upon A Sketch blog do a monthly sketch and you have the chance to win some wonderful prizes. Go check out all the amazing talent on this blog, some stunning, inspirational and very creative layouts. Well worth the visit. Just so scrap-delishous! Below is my take :)

July's monthly sketch

My take!
Using Prima Madeline Collection - Madeline, Prima flowers, Prim notecards, DA chipboard bunting, ornate corner #6, botanic accent #1, TH weathered wood distress ink, assorted flowers and stamens.

Journal (notice how its hand written - something I rarely ever do!)
Maddison & Alysa both love their ponies. If Maddie goes for a ride on Bonnie,
sure enough Alyssa will want to ride Shawnee.
