Time flies...OUAS March 41

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, February 28, 2013 @ 4:02 PM | , , , , ,

Hi there! Since it is the beginning of a new month, that means it is time for an all new Once Upon A Sketch Challenge. Shown below is the fun sketch that we will be playing with all month and the theme is "It's the Weekend"
Almost Happy March in the US! It is currently March 1st here in Sydney where I am actually this weekend and will be for the next 5 days! Scott and I will be visting Australia and New Zealand until March 18th. 

Nearly every other weekend, on Saturdays, Meredith has a horse riding lesson so I scrapped a photo of Meredith riding Dallas one Saturday morning. 
I combined a variety of store bought flowers with various chipboard pieces that I had on hand. The scalloped circle on the right hand side is from the Blue Fern Studios Nested Circles Set.
I applied a layer to of embossing enamel to all the chip board pieces. Shown below is a beautiful butterfly large from Imaginarium Designs 
The sentiment is another beautiful piece from Imaginarium Designs with a coating of pink enamel.
Thanks so much for visiting!  For some AMAZING International inspiration and complete details, please refer to the Once Upon A Sketch Challenge blog.
