My happy place

Happy Sunday everyone! My favorite day of the week....I had created this lo to enter in Once upon a Sketch November challenge and I just realized that today is the last day to enter! So glad I checked, I thought I had until the end of the month! I love love love their challenges, but.....I am hopeless at adding journaling onto a lay out! It's frustrating because I love journaling, it adds so much meaning to a page, but I have a really hard time incorporating into my design. I even have problems getting a title in their somewhere! So I wrote some journaling on the back of the page, it reads " Liam, there are many places - the beach most of all - where I am so happy, but the truth is, I am happy almost anywhere - as long as I am with you! You bring so much joy into my life and I love every minute of being your mum! YOU are my happy place! " 
Without being too sentimental, my son is my world and this photo is on the steps of our house, which is my happiest place of all. :)
I used some Prima flowers and some really gorgeous blue and brown and green Petaloo hydrangeas, and a Blue Fern Studios vine that I inked with 13 arts Pearl Brown mist. 

Here are more details about this month's challenge! And you can find the Once Upon a Sketch blog here.....

Journalling Theme: "My Happy Place"

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! 

Thanks for taking a look! Lisa XO

  2. What a sweet page. Love the photo & I love the texture you added to your background. I'm very big on including journaling on my layouts--I always document my thoughts and/or memories on the subject I'm scrapping. I tend to store my journaling in either mini booklets and/or scrolls that I then make part of my layout & make for unique embellishments. Just a few options/ideas for you to consider for the future. Excellent take on the challenge & sketch. Thanks for joining us at OUAS!
