April 15th Challenge over at Once Upon A Sketch..

Hello there again my blogger buddies!!!!!

This Layout i have done is for the Once Upon A Sketch challenge April 15th!! if you have not givin this a go please do!!!!! the ladies over there at Once Upon A Sketch are so talented and just are beautiful people!!!  Check the site out HERE..

Anyways Your journalling criteria for this challenge is to write the reason you chose to scrap this photo ..(e.g. to remember this moment, to remember someone, to send a message to someone, because this photo makes you smile, the photo shows a personal achievement, your child's milestone etc. etc. )

Your journalling can be any type i.e. handwritten, printed etc.. and as long as you wish it to be.
NOTE: that in this challenge your journalling can be hidden but you have to say where and show where:
so here goes here is the sketch to follow:

and here is my take on it: 

My Jounalling is on the red tag just above the Bird!!!! it is a lil private as this is my husband's grandpa which i got on with really really well, and he just passed away a month ago and the journalling is very close to my heart!!!! so im sorry that you guys cant see it!!!!! but some things are to stay close to the heart!!!

and another close up:

Thanks to you all for popping on by and checking out my blog. Hugs and Kisses to you all and a very big tight squeeze of a hug to all that leave a delightful comment..

  4. Awesome and sweet page. Thanks so so much for your kind words and for joining us at Once Upon A ..Sketch.

    Toni, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for sharing your experience with me. I want you to know, that on the eve of returning to work you have made me feel just that much better, just because what you said made me realise that there are so many many mothers out there that have to return to work, so many mothers that have to work longer hours..so many mothers that struggle. I am not the only one..even though thats how i have felt all the way leading up to tomorrow. And you know, in fact I was lucky enough to take Term 1 off because of the fact it came to that point that you said about "this is going well or this is not working". I took 5 months off and now I am feeling a little better because the kids are 5 older and they can tell me about their days...

    How silly..they are probably having a ball without me LOL!

    Deep breath! I must CUT the umbilical cord ONE day! Take good care and I hope it all works out for you too :o)
