Once Upon A Sketch October Challenge reveal

Deadline for this challenge is

October brings autumn/fall to some countries of the world, but for us here in Australia sunny long days have started and the hint that summer is on its way is overwhelming :)

I hope you all get a chance to play along this month. We have SOME AMAZING prizes up for grabs and don't forget about our Facebook contest!!! When you play along this month please remember to post your layout at our Facebook Page HERE where a RANDOM winner will be chosen to win this prize from our monthly Facebook sponsor 13arts

Journalling Theme: "The Journey.."

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 need to be present and at least 3 lines long. Remember, hidden journalling is perfectly fine but please DO let us know in your post where your journalling is. 

Please welcome the winner of  our August challenge

And here is my take. I flipped the sketch like this but used only one photo and made the horizontal line more defined than the vertical one.

I'll be back tomorrow with a pre-scheduled post sharing the close-ups.

Now time to finish the last of my packing for tomorrow's 
trip to London and the European Management Assistants 
Annual General Meeting.

See you in a bit! 

Toodelipip! xoxo Eila


  1. I just love your take on this challenge so much, Eila! The summery colours match wonderfully with that photo and I really like the two birdies!

  2. You always have the most delightful images Eila...love this coastal scene with the gulls wheeling overhead and their cousins at the edge to greet them. The red and russet colours pick up on the red cabins and I see a cuppa waiting for the weary traveller...Top notch Eila...love your work :)
