My "Once Upon A Sketch" April Challenge

Hello there, thanks for stopping by. Today I have a layout to share
 with you that I based on the current challenge over at

As well as using this sketch, this months theme is
"The Best Day Ever".

This photo is a dear friend of mines daughter & it
 was taken on her sixteenth birthday.
When you turn sixteen you think you are so grown up,
she really thought it was her "best day ever". 

I have journalled on the back of the layout 
& I have placed it inside this clock face.
 I think this clock is symbolic
of time.

I have challenged myself to step out of my comfort zone &
do some more "modern" & "minimilist" layouts.
As anyone who is familiar with my work knows my style
is more "shabby chic". Well I think I have met my
criteria I set for myself & I have to say I am rather
pleased with the outcome & will definitely be doing more.

I have started off with one of these watery backgrounds that
my good friend Kim Price is so famous for.

This layout was also part of my April DT reveal over on the
Green Tara blog so naturally I have used lots of fabulous
Green Tara goodies including this gorgeous black & white
Herringbone ribbon that I have tied this bow with.

Some of the new Green Tara Burlap Trim in black.

Green Tara Roses & Suede Cord.

And of course lots of great 2 Crafty chippies including
this title "You". Love this font.

2 Crafty Gears & Cogs, assorted Arrows &
some of their mini Filmstrips.

Thanks for calling by.
Until next time.
