My "Once Upon A Sketch" Layout
"Party Time"

Hello everyone, hope you are all having a great week.
I have just finished my layout for this months challenge

Here is the sketch for this month & the theme is
"It's the Weekend". 

So what happens on the weekend for this little one is
having fun & going to lots of birthday parties.
 This photo is a friend of mines
Grandaughter.  Although you cannot really see
 in the photos, she has the sweetest pink tutu on & her
gorgeous hat with that great big flower.
The perfect party outfit for any little girl.

I have written a  story all about the day & I have
folded it up & put it in this little envelope, & simply
tucked it in under the side edge of the photo.

I wanted to make my layout  super girly & feminine to continue
the theme of her girlie outfit.
Lots of Green Tara flowers of course.

I have given my background a treatment which I learnt in a 
class I went to the other week with the famous
Finnibair.  Little bits of different lace tucked into little
gaps in the paper here & there.
Again all these different laces are also from

All of my chipboard including the title & chicken wire,
are from 2 Crafty chipboard.

Lots of misting, stamping & distressing too.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Until next time.
