Hello there! So glad you stopped by....

I am in love with editing photos on my iPhone and playing with the colors, so I came up with these photos of Liam that I took the other day, looking quite serious. I was loving the pinks and oranges and reds and I thought of the Prima Sunrise Sunset papers and it was just a perfect match. I think they are my all-time favourite Prima papers. Ever.


I saw that the Once Upon a Sketch theme this month was the men in our lives....well my life revolves around this little guy, and since he turned eight last month, there have so many changes, it's been hard to handle! I wrote some journaling on the back of the layout...'Liam you are growing up so fast! You are still a sweet and kind boy who still gives me a cuddle, but you are growing more and more independent everyday....turning eight is really bring some you more than you will ever know ;)....'

Here is the challenge this month....

Hi everyone! Welcome to our second reveal of August Challenge :-)
Thank You for all wonderful entries in our gallery! We love them all and we ask for more :-)

Have fun and play with us :-)
And now take a look at all those amazing inspirations from our Team 2!

Journalling Theme: "The men in our lives..." 

You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. It is for your inspiration and this theme word DOES NOT need to be part of your title or journalling. But please make sure your layout is based on the sketch below and includes journalling (hidden journalling is fine). Acceptable journalling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long. Remember, hidden journalling (under a photo/tag or behind your page) is perfectly fine but please DO let us know in your post where your journalling is! 

I changed the sketch a little bit, I used two photos, just split them up.
Here are a few closeups....

I used some of the new Memory Box dies I bought, little tiny delicate vines and leaves, I thought they would look pretty and also symbolize how my little boy is growing up! 

Thanks for taking a look, and enjoy the day....
Hugs, Lisa xo
