Once Upon A .. Sketch November challenge - close-ups of my page "Memories"

Hi ya!

Hope you are all good out there! Work has taken off att Mach 3 in the office. The month or so before Christmas is always manic as I am sure it is for us all. 

My DT term with OUAS is nearing its end. The December challenge will be my last one. Cannot believe how fast time has flown by even with the extended term due to Nadia having baby Sofia!  

But first the November sketch and close-ups of my November page.

Journalling Theme: "My Happy Place"

This time my journalling is this verse from a poem that I found on internet. It describes exactly what my happy place is about - my memories. 

Apart from the obvious physical happy places like home, my fave spot by the sea, my fave spot at sunset and many many more, my memories take me to many places and many moments that I can enjoy over and over again irrespective of when they actually happened the first time. Years are of no consequence when it comes to memories.

Letting the photos speak for themselves again. It was such a joy to create this page with all the ingredients that make me hum; fussy cutting, flowers, a dash of mist, a splash of gold and just pretty stuff. Hope you like it too.
