Once Upon A Sketch August Challenge
"The Magic of You"

Hi there, thanks for calling by.
Today I have my layout that I have done for the August challenge over at

Here  is the current sketch, & as always I have tweeked it up a little.
The journalling theme this month is
"I'll never forget" which can be interpreted in either a
good or bad way.

This little sweetie is the Grandaughter of a good friend, & just after
this pic was taken she took her first steps, much to the delight of
her Mummy & Daddy. So this was a very special & memorable
occasion for the family.

This sweet little title, "The Magic of You" is from 
2 Crafty chipboard, as is this chippie chicken wire.

I have done lots of background treatments using various
mediums & mists. I have also used lots of beautiful 
Green Tara flowers, pearl trim  & this is one of their
many beautiful laces. It was white & I misted it pink 
to match my layout.

I also made this wreath from some Green Tara
 " wired cord." I was so happy how it turned out.

Here is my journalling.

Thanks so much for taking the time to call by.
I do hope you liked my layout.
Until next time.
