As its the 14th of the month its time for our second challenge over at Once Upon A …..Sketch and Get Creative. You may remember that at the beginning of the month OUAS and Get Creative teamed up and both Design Teams swapped places , they following our sketch and we following theirs, and what a great success it has been so far ! We have have had a bumper crop of fabulous entries for both challenges and are hoping that you will continue to play along with us for the rest of the month.
This is the fantastic sketch that Nadia has asked us to follow and I will let her explain the criteria for it.
February 15th Challenge
Journalling criteria/theme: HOLIDAYS
Have you printed out all those photos from your last holiday or most favourite holiday? We would LOVE to see them and hear all about it. With the theme of holidays for this challenge, we would love to hear about: your favourite holiday of all time or a favourite place you would LOVE to holiday in . Or how about the last holiday you went to? Maybe you have not travelled yet? Then tell us about your DREAM HOLIDAY.
Remember that you are allowed to also create a card or altered project based on this sketch and theme and instead of the journalling criteria you need to use a quote.
You must combine our journalling criteria/theme with this sketch.
Here is my take on the sketch
I chose Paris as my favourite holiday destination not because I had my best holiday there but because it has potential to be so. Let me explain, Three times I have visited , twice in summer and once during spring only to have the most horrendous weather on all three occasions, bitter cold, ferocious winds and even snow ! So I am dreaming of returning and wandering slowly along its beautiful streets instead of running around with my up turned inside out umbrella under one arm whilst trying to keep my frock from blowing up over my head and exposing my knickers ( it was really windy ) !
Please pop over to OUAS and to Get Creative to see the fabulous Design Team inspirational pieces and to find out about the prizes from our very generous sponsors, you have up until the end of the month to upload your projects in order to be eligible.
On another note, as many of you know Greece is and has being going through turmoil for quite some time now but it has been greatly heightened over the past few weeks . Everyone here has been greatly affected and there is a terrible sense of sadness and desperation in the air not very conducive for the old creating so I do apologise for not visiting you all as often as I normally do but hope to put that to rites within the next few days.
Thought I would leave you with a couple of pics of Bailey and Rosy ( Rosy is the porker ! )
Don’t they make a lovely couple !

Wishing all of those who celebrate a very happy Valentines day !!
