Hi there! well, my GDT gig over at ONCE UPON A SKETCH is almost over. i love, love the sketches and the journalling criterias they have this month. thank you soooo much OUAS leaders and DT members for the chance to be part of your team.
And here is my take on the Oct 15 sketch with the Journalling criteria: A most embarrassing/awkward/uncomfortable moment. Journal at least 2 SENTENCES on a moment that you will remember for all the wrong reasons. Examples: something you said/did, something your child said, something your pet did etc.

journal says: i'm pretty sure my family and friends have a few suggestionsto which of my many embarrasing moment will be on the top but of course i'm not going to ask for their opinion. LOL! whats my most embarrasing moment- walking into the men's restroom in the movie theater! i walk-in without looking, went straight to the stall and pee, even washed my hands (i have no idea why i didn't notice the group of men staring at me!) and walked out. then somebody asked me "did you just walked out the men's restroom?'' good thing we were done watching the movie and left immediately.

i had the hardest time thinking which of the many embarrasing moments i had to share with all of you...wait...who, in their right mind, would even want to share an embarrasing moment with the whole world to read (exaggerating) LOL! honestly, i had fun creating and journalling on this one. oh yes, i used my AMERICAN CRAFTS AMY TANGERINE collection. i'm still inlove with them!
Please hop on to ONCE UPON A SKETCH and check out the challenge details and the beautiful creations by the the other DT's to get you inspired and play along with us.
i want to say thank you again to ONCE UPON A SKETCH!!!
have a wonderful day!

hugs & lots of love,

Hi it's me again! Hope you all are having a great Saturday! Me?! i have a great news to share with you today. I've been wanting to share this one with all of you.
if you've been following me for awhile, you know that i had to withdraw from my past DT assignments because of some family issues but thank God everything is ok now. a few weeks ago Miss Leah of STUCK ON U SKETCHES emailed me and asked me if i want to be one of their Design Team member over at SOUS of course my answer was YES!!! and what an honor it is to be asked to be in a DT of a great challenge blog and work with wonderful & talented ladies.
I am very proud to say that i am now one of the Design Team member of STUCK ON U SKETCHES! And check out the announcement HERE!
with all that said here is my take on SOUS October 14, Friday sketch challenge using CRATE PAPERS RANDOM collection-

this are my kiddos just being themselves LOL! i love taking photos of them anywhere, anytime and just because...don't they all look adorable? LOL.
and here is the sketch that our very own, the talented Miss Leah created for this week sketch-
i hope you can stop by STUCK ON U SKETCHES and check out what the other DT members created to get you inspired and play along with us. I want to say thank you again to the leaders and DT's of STUCK ON U SKETCHES, especially Miss Leah, for trusting me that i can do this again and for the wonderful opportunity.
And thank you all for stopping by my blog and leaving me lovely comments i really appreciate them. Have a great day! & like they say "Stay calm and be creative..."

Hello there everyone!!! it's October already?! well that means new challenges from different challenge blog sites and new sketches. i'm hoping to be able to play along with most of them. challenge blog and sketches has been a great source of inspiration for me. whenever i try to play along i don't necessarily look at the prizes i just want to join in the fun and be creative.
last month i was very lucky to have won  ONCE UPON A SKETCH Sept 1st challenge and so i was one of their GDT this month. if you are looking for inspiration i recommend you visit OUAS. they have an amazing sketch every 1st and 15th of the month. also, i know many of us scrappers doesn't like adding journaling in our layout, well together with their sketch they have a journaling criteria that will help you tell the story or memories about your photos.
for the October 1st challenge the
Journalling Criteria is toWRITE 2 noteworthy (to you anyway) events of the past week. Your journalling can be as long as you wish. There is NO limit to how much journalling you include but in order to qualify as a winner for this challenge, we must see AT LEAST 1 SENTENCE of journalling on WHY each event was noteworthy.
and here is my take using CRATE PAPERS RANDOM collection-

journaling says: i recently celebrated my 31st birthday and every year i feel so bless to be able to celebrate this special day with the most important people in my life- my family.

and here is the beautiful sketch from OUAS designed by Miss Nadia Cazzinno-

i hope i have inspired you to join us over at ONCE UPON A SKETCH and check out what the other wonderful DT's have created.
thank you sooo much for stopping by and have a great weekend. before i end this post i would like to leave you with my favorite words for today
