Once Upon A Sketch August challenge - "My Girls"

Hi there!

1 August - goodness gosh!

Today both Once Upon A Sketch (OUAS) and Scrap Around The World release our August challenges. This time I start with the OUAS reveal, SATW follows shortly.

It is team B's turn to share pages over at OUAS, and as I'm in team B it means I've got a page to share with you. As from September, we will change into having just one big team contributing for each monthly challenge.

I will have close-ups for you tomorrow when I will also reveal the names of the winners of my July purge take-away.  

and HERE is the link to the OUAS August reveal.

Journalling Theme: "I'll never forget".

You are free to interpret our theme any way you like but please make sure your layout is based on the sketch below and includes some journalling (hidden journalling is fine)

The deadline for this challenge is 

 midnight 25 August Australian Eastern Standard Time 


Please welcome the winner of our June Challenge


My name is Zaneta Glowa a.k.a Zanka. I’m originally from Poland but I have been living in Sweden for quite few years now. Came here for job reason and stayed for love ;) I have a little family, my little daughter, two stepchildren and my hubby. As you might’ve noticed, my works mainly feature the photos of our kids.My adventure with scrapbooking started in 2010, with some Christmas cards and an idea to make an album with the photos from our daughter’s baptising. Before I knew it, I was totally hooked and I now could almost start a little store with the amount of scrapbooking supplies I have! I currently design for Papercraft Scandinavia, Let's Get Shabby challenge blog and Color Stories Inspiration. 

You will find my blog HERE 
Journalling: "I'll never forget...the year when a tiny miracle,  our daughter came to our life"
