Once Upon a Sketch - October Challenge

I'm loving all the challenge sites out there at the moment, they are definitely helping me find my mojo again. A couple of my friends have been doing the challenges from Once Upon a Sketch , it's a great challenge site with a sketch and journaling requirement for each challenge. I've looked at their challenges before but this is the first time I've given one a try. This is the sketch for October, with a journalling theme of : "The Journey..."
 This is my take on the sketch... "My Journey Lead Me to You"
Heres a little close up ...
I'm not big on journalling, its something I struggle with but for this page I've included it on the back of the layout. It says "The past few years have been a journey of discovery for me ... I never thought my journey would lead me to you".

Thanks for stopping by, until next time,



  1. Kaye, I'm so glad you have joined us this month at OUAS!! What a fabulous layout, and I just adore your bridge. The contrast of the corrugated letters in the opposite direction of the background is such a wonderful touch!! I love how you went beyond your comfort zone to add the meaningful journaling!! Thanks for joining us for the October Once Upon A…Sketch Challenge! I hope you’ll stop by our Once Upon A…Sketch Facebook Page to share your layout there. ~ Blessings, Tracey

  2. Kaye how wonderful that you decided to take the plunge and play. I think that you have created a beautiful layout and I love the torn strip that guides your eye across the layout. Beautiful elemements and I love the corrugated card. Journalling does get easier the more you do and and your family and kids will want to read the stories. So well done :D Thank you for playing along with us at OUAS this month.
