Sketch Challenge #26 for Scrap Africa

Hello everyone, i hope you are having a lovely weekend. We are having a quiet one this weekend and getting over the rain that cyclone Dylan brought with it. But all is well now and I wanted to share with you my page for Scrap Africa.  
 
I attempted to scrap this photo a long time ago and i failed then, something about the colours maybe i don't know it just did not work for me, lol. One good thing is i managed to get the memory down 5 years ago, so i ripped up the photo and began again(don't panic i didn't have much on it). I also am beginning to get back into the journalling side of things. It is lovely to reminisce of days gone by. My oldest was 5 in this photo, she just recently turned 10. My how time flies. Now for those who are wondering, who on Earth is Mariposa?? Well being a mother of two daughters of course they love all things Barbie and we collect Barbie movies. Mariposa is a character in one of these Barbie movies, she is a beautiful fairy. My eldest has always been a great role player, her imagination never ceases to amaze me :)
 
 

 
 
This is the sketch this fortnight. We would love you to have a go and show us what you come up with.
 
 

 
 
Thanks for dropping by,take care xx

It's a beautiful page Billie-Jean and love the sweet photo of your daughter! The background paper is pretty busy, but you managed to pull it off very nicely and love the added blooms and journalling! ;-)

I love this happy layout. The background paper is gorgeous and I love all the layers with the flowers tucked in. Gorgeous inspiration ...
