Once Upon A Sketch (OUAS) challenge. The challenge for this month was to use a quote in combination with the usual provided sketch. We could interpret the quote anyway we wanted.
I've also used an XL acrylic Deco shape by Clear Scraps on this page.
All paper used on this page was sponsored by Riddersholm Design & is from their Christmas Story collection. I wanted to show how versatile these papers were in using them in a non-Christmas themed layout. They are beautiful papers for either Christmas or non-Christmas themed projects!
Not many know this--but I suppose this is a good time as any to tell. I'm actually expecting my first child & he's due in a few weeks time (yes, it's a boy). To us though our fur-baby Toby is our 'eldest' son. My family are huge animal lovers and ever since I can remember we always saw the pets in our household as simply another member of the family. Plus it doesn't help that Toby really does act like he's a child trapped in a furry body. Here is just one example of that. Toby has been curious about my growing belly for some time now. Well this October afternoon he simply came up to me and started sniffing around my tummy--eventually he just stood up & felt it--as if he were trying to figure out what's going on inside this growing tummy. Luckily my husband was around & he snapped this photo.
Scrapbooking Fantasies & I used it on both my journaling tag and for this arrangement of flowers, beaded vines & twine. There's a bit of moss jute ribbon in the background, mini pine cones (since this photo was taken in Autumn--my fave season!) a small glass vial full of black glass beads & a light bulb trinket by Prima. The twine & white mulberry paper roses were also sponsored by Riddersholm Design.
More Paper Than Shoes. Anna, the owner, makes many lovely handmade flowers such as these.

Thanks to all of you who stop by for a visit--it's always very much appreciated. Do remember to swing by the OUAS blog & see the other DT's interpretation of the current challenge & do play along if you can!
Also, I hope this post inspired some of you to get creative with your acrylic--break out those stamps and alcohol inks & just get messy! You can always find this & many more acrylic goodies at Clear Scraps.
Have a great rest of the week!
