My Girl Layout – Once Upon a Sketch Challenge Entry

I’ve had this photo of Madison for quite a while and have been waiting for just the right sketch and papers to use for it. Getting a good picture of her is a challenge (she plasters on a fake looking smile whenever she sees the camera), so pretty pics of her are few and far between! I’ve been further challenged by the fact that it’s a Christmas pic, but doesn’t really look like Christmas? I wanted to use non-traditional Christmas colors and figured I’d just have to pick a line that’s actually meant for Spring. Well, Webster’s Pages recently released their Winter Fairy Tales collection for the Summer CHA and I found this wonderful sketch on Once Upon a Sketch and knew I’d finally found the perfect combination for my daughter’s photo. 😀 Here’s what I came up with:


Webster’s Pages Winter Fairy Tales 12×12 papers
WP Dazzle Me Gems
WP Bloomers
WP Storytellers Alphas
WP heart Whimsey
Prima Flowers
Crocheted flower received in my prize pack by Marivic last month (


Helmar Acid Free Glue
Helmar adhesive runner
Helmar 450 Quick Dry
Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots


Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch

    Fabulous layers, mix of colors and the strip of Websters trim really sets it off. I love your take on this challenge.

    Hmmm can so relate to the ‘plastered smile’ my girls are going through a similar stage at the moment. Love your take on the sketch and how you worked around using a ‘festive’ photo with non festive papers and embellishing. The colours you have worked with are delightful, a truly gorgeous layout. Thanks so much for playing along with us at OUAS!
