OUAS April Challenge - "Meeting You"

My gosh! I have never ever had this many visits on my blog - 74 comments while I'm writing this!

THANKS all of you who are taking part in Riikka Kovasin's Easter Bloghop that is running until 8 April 12.00 noon GTM/13.00 CET! HERE IS THE LINK TO THE HOP

Now to OUAS April challenge that went live a few days ago and it is team B's turn to share our pages.

This month OUAS celebrates our 2nd anniversary. Nadia always says how amazed she is that a little idea she had all those months ago turned into something great, giving people a "home", and becoming part of this great online scrapping community. I am so very honoured to be part of it!

So happy April, happy Spring/Autumn and happy creating!!! 


Theme:  Best day of your life

The best day of your life!!!!! Everyone has at least one or two! Tell us anything that you can relate this title to. 
Ideas for journalling: child's birth, wedding day, anniversary, meeting someone special, buying a new home, changing jobs, a holiday, a special celebration.. there is no right or wrong. Its YOUR day!

Your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch below. 

Please make sure that we see some sort of journalling on your layouts and please tell us where your journalling is . You are allowed to journal in any language but please tell us where on your page we will find your journalling. Remember journalling has to be a bit more than a title, or a generic comment. Hidden journalling is perfectly fine.
Please welcome our fabulous February  challenge winner


 You will find her blog HERE 


This month, we also welcome the very talented ladies from The Flying Unicorn, which besides being our ongoing permanent sponsor is also our MAIN sponsor this month!! 

The winner of this challenge,as voted by the Design Team will be invited to come back in June as our Guest Designer PLUS the winner will also receive the April Kit Of The Month from our main sponsors for April, The Flying Unicorn...
And here is my take on the sketch - "Meeting You";
No mixed media on it this time, just paper and embellies. 
My journalling is in the form of a letter that I have placed at the back of my layout. Those of you who have followed me for a while, now that I met my DH Bengt late in life after a divorce and that we have had our fair share of ups and downs. 
I am writing to him about the good things, the precious moments shared and life experiences of grief and sorrow that have welded us together. This is my guy till one of us has to leave on that final journey.

Remember you have until 8 April 12.00 noon GMT/13.00 CET to participate in the Easter Bloghop!

In my next post I will share my take on the Blue Fern Studios April challenge based on a fabulous sketch by Michele Singh.
Till then, ta ta for your lovely and much appreciated visit!!

  2. What a fantastic layout Eila. Even with no mixed media techniques your page is still packed with goodness! And you have made me realise that of course my page should be about my love too. I was thinking I can't choose any one birth without the others feeling disregarded and had Shane not come into my life they would not have either. I love that netting type fabric you have included.
