It s been so long since I started this blog ....and the posts have been so far PATHETIC!!!!

Never mind...its never too late to start again right???

I decided to have a go at this challenge by the once upon a sketch blog. The brief was to use the sketch and the jounalling criteria was

Journalling Criteria : A memorable year - Your title must be a year, and you must journal at least 2 lines on why this year is memorable for you. Examples: the year you got married, the year you graduated, the year you moved to a new house/country, the year you started a new job, the year your child was born, the year you lost someone dear. Your journalling can be in any language and any format (written, typed etc)
I decided to make a shadow box canvas of Rhys and his girlfriend Kelsi at their school ball. Not the nicest photo of my boy, but Kelsi looked just stunning!!

I have pretty much followed the sketch, but used a quote for the journalling since it is a piece of wall art.


Close up of the wee felt flowers I made with the dienamics dies...they are so darned cute!!!

The papers I have used on this project are from the My Minds Eye Lost and Found II range. I just love the colours of these papers....very classy!!!

I intend to give this to Kelsi for her 18th birthday....sure hope she likes it!!!
