Hello everyone! We're reminding you to join the challenge at ONCE UPON A SKETCH for a chance to win the prize from Berry71bleu.
Nadia, OUAS owner was nice enough to feature our DT members on their blog site. Thank you so much Nadia and thanks to your wonderful group of DT and Patti Hamil for all your help.
MARCH 1st CHALLENGE:
Journalling Criteria/Theme: All About Me!
The focus of your journalling and the theme of your layout has to be based on YOU and something/s that you are really good at. Don't be shy! We are all good at something as small or as big as it might be.
Ideas for journalling: being a good mum, cooking, talking, understanding people, organising, cleaning, gardening, studying, computers, fashion, exercising, scrapbooking, good at my job, maths, languages, writing , drawing, painting, photography, running, craft, sewing. Maybe you can talk about an aspect of your personality..your sensitivity, your 6th sense, your patience, your strength or bravery, your ability to stay positive.
Remember that you are allowed to also create a card or altered project based on this sketch and theme and instead of the journalling criteria you need to use a quote.
You MUST combine our journalling criteria with this sketch..
Here are the DT projects for the month of March.
Jing van Opstal
" I wear many hats in life but the one that I wear best is the role of "friend." Although there may be more important roles in my life I question my level of excellency in them. I never do with "friend." I'm the kind of friend I would want to have and always strive to plant my soul in the hearts of my friends where I will live forever. Friends are the family you choose. I treasure them."
"My Lo is about being a Mom to Ellie. That is why I titled it Blessed.
The journal card under the picture says: I love thee to the depth and
breadth and height my soul can reach. By Elizabeth Browning.
My journal strips on the right side says: adore on the ticket, family time,
forever, best friends, quality time.
The journaling I wrote says: Blessed to be your mom!
Love all the times we cherish.
The moments and memories we share."
"My quote is centered around motherhood, since what I am good at is being a mom. Here is the quote: A mother's love is peace, it need not be acquired, it need not be deserved. ~ Errich Fromm"
I hate talking about me. I decided to use Meredith Brooks song. "Nothing in Between" or the uncensored version "BITCH".
"I hate the world today
You're so good to me
I know but I can't change
Tried to tell you
But you look at me like maybe
I'm an angel underneath
Innocent and sweet
Yesterday I cried
Must have been relieved to see
The softer side
I can understand how you'd be so confused
I don't envy you
I'm a little bit of everything
All rolled into one
I'm a Bitch, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way."
Yes..I'm all that. But I don't consider myself a bitch (only when provoked). I can tell you that I am very passionate in what I do. And whatever I can do and whatever I can share, I will. I am a good friend to a lot. If only I can put a flashing light on my email, it will say "OPEN 24 HRS A DAY, COME ON IN". I am often misunderstood only because I am being judged.
I can't force you to like me and I make mistakes like everyone else. But I always mean well. I'd rather have a few friends that care than have plenty that don't give a damn. And once I am your friend, I am a friend for life.
Thanks for stopping by.
