The END of my TERM

over at Once Upon a .. SKETCH 
here is my very last sketch for OUAS.... 

I want to say "a very special thanks to Nadia "
I remember how excited I was when you asked me to join in with the team 15 months ago. 

How lucky I felt to be given this amazing, artistic opportunity, and Oh what a journey it has been !!!!
Once upon a Sketch marked the beginning of my DT journey.
since then I have been asked by so many people to join their teams
 and I am so grateful and humbled to be recognised in this way 
big hugz to you Nadia , I will always remember you.
Thanks for the fabulous Ride !!!! mwah xoxxo

Below is Nadia's beautiful sketch .
We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "BIRTHDAYS" however you like based on the following sketch. You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch below. Please make sure that we see some sort of journalling on your layouts and please tell us where your journalling is . Hidden journalling is perfectly fine. 

Ideas for Journalling:most memorable birthday celebration for you or anyone in your family, the last birthday you celebrated and tell us your thoughts on turning this age, your child's/other family member's birthday and your thoughts on their age, a birthday that was a turning point in your life and your excitement/fears or other thoughts you had, an upcoming birthday for you or anyone and your thoughts, the best birthday present you ever received/gave and why?. You can also base your layout on a non - person birthday. This means your birthday theme can be based on : a pet, a business venture, a milestone anniversary etc etc. Its up to you how you interpret "BIRTHDAYS

I chose to use a pic of my grandson celebrating his 13th birthday 
Becoming a teenager is a huge milestone 
happy birthday DAKOTA xoxox


 the magnificent Imaginarium Designs chippies ... these steampunk cogs are one of my faves 

hope you are inspired to join in the fun over at Once Upon a ....Sketch 

thanks for dropping by and taking the time to leave me some love 
I love reading all the words you leave for me 
hugz to you all

I love this, masculine yet beautiful.. and all the best with any more dt you go on, you really shine no matter what the criteria of the challenge is!!xx
