My "Once Upon A Sketch" Layout
"Captured Memories"

Hello everyone, thanks so much for calling by.
Today I have my very first entry for
I think I must be the only person in the entire scrapbooking
community that has never joined in before!!!
So here we go.....

I loved this sketch, hey whats not to love!!
As soon as I saw it I just knew I had to join in too.
I must admit I do looooove sketch challenges & this one
is certainly no exception.
I have stuck fairly close to the sketch I think, I haven't
really changed it much at all.

As always I have used lots of yummy Green Tara flowers, leaves,
lace & this little mauve trim is also one of their newest range of trims too.

My little chipboard title, "Captured Memories" is from
2 Crafty Chipboard.

As you can see in this pic I have stencilled some mesh on my
 background & tucked a few cogs in here & there in 
between my flowers.
On the left side of my photo you can see  I have also made
 this little envelope & tucked my journalling into it.

Well thats about all for today.
Thanks again for calling by.
Until next time.
