Once Upon A Sketch September 1st Challenge

I really like the idea of having the YEAR as the title. I'm sure we all have meaningful momentous 'years' which are totally memorable and unforgettable. Well, truth be told I can find something incredible to talk about in just about every year of my past thirty something life... but for this challenge I've chosen 2007, the year of our wedding. Well, this is the obvious choice simply because the photography archive is waaaaaay more exciting than every other year :)

Here's my layout:

Papers are Prima Madeline collection Beautima and some Pink Paislee Sweetness. Transparency doily by Hambly. Background is misted with some pink and brown.

 Here's the sketch by OUAS:

Here's the journaling criteria as per OUAS' blogpost:

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)

 Here are some close-ups:

Flowers are Prima with the blue bloomers ribbon from Webster's pages which I separated.

Tiny mulberry roses on wire stems and skeleton leaf are locally sourced. Click on the product names and it'll lead you their respective stores.

Chipboard Frame is Tattered Angels. Blue crystal is from a local haberdashery. Dragonfly brad is Creative Impressions.

To be absolutely honest I wasn't entirely too happy about how this turned out as this is not the typical color scheme I would be comfortable with and I really think I could have done better with different, more suitable blooms... Hmmm, reminder to self to stock up on more blooms of different hues ;)

Thanks for visiting, you awesome crafty friends :)
