Once upon a ... well, meant to be a sketch!

I think this happens every time I enter this challenge, I start off with great intentions and follow the sketch carefully...but by the time I get to the end I am not so sure!

Here is my entry for August that is to use the sketch (hmmmm) and journal about a season - I have chosen SUMMER.



Used my new Ali Edwards stamps. Liking them a lot!

  3. I totally see what you mean. I often end up creating something that looks nothing like the sketch. But I think that's the good thing about using sketches. They are just a push to make your own creative juices flow. Your layout is simply awesome and so summery! I love the handwritten journaling. Thank you so much for playing along at OUAS!
