Family - January OUAS

The theme accompanying the January Once Upon A Sketch Challenge is "Lesson Learnt". As soon as I saw it I instantly thought of the photo I would use and how I would apply the theme.The photo I've used is of my two dear friends Bella and Susan taken on the morning of my wedding in November, Susan traveled all the way from Western Australia to the Gold Coast just to attend my wedding. Over the past few years Susan and Bella have helped me more than words can say, and I don't know where I would be without them. During this time I learned a very important lesson .... family are not simply those related to you by blood, they are those that stand by you through the bad times and the good.

Here's January's sketch ...
And here's my take on it ...
 Some close ups of the journalling
and of the embellishments.
Well, that's all for now, although its so hot here today I'm not leaving the comfort of the air conditioning so hopefully I'll get another page finished.

Thanks for stopping by, until next time.
