OUAS - November Challenge

Hello lovely bloggy visitors!

After a huge year of markets I've had hardly anytime for scrapping, now that the market season is over, I'm crossing my fingers and toes that I get to catch up on all things scrappy!

I so enjoyed last months Once Upon a Sketch Challenge, that I've played along again this month. Man the DT is super inspiring.

The sketch for this month is:
I have rotated and flipped it


The theme for this month is: Anything Goes!

I really wanted to do a layout about the markets I have been doing this year as they have meant so much to me. 
I've used lot's of Sassafras Lass (which I'm trying not to hoard), as well as some October afternoon. I got the most of the flowers from Caramelos on etsy.


A close-up of all the flowers, which I don't often use so I really enjoyed creating this layout!


Another close up. The photo is mounted on a SMASH calendar pocket, I have written the journalling on journalling block, and have tucked it into the pocket. The journalling reads: "I cannot express what being able to participate in this year's west end markets has meant for me. I have gained confidence, a renewed sense of self & positive self esteem. As well as a whole bunch of beautiful souls I am blessed to call my friends. I'm so thankful for this experience".


Well I have so much chores to do, but I'm thinking I might just get into some more scrapping!

Thankyou so much for visiting my blog!

love & peace xox
