Once Upon A Sketch and CSI

It's time for another challenge at Once Upon A Sketch. This month we've been teaming up with Color Stories Inspiration (CSI). It's been a little different, there are 4 challenges this month since CSI has one every week. This week is my group. Below is the sketch and information along with my take on the challenge.

I chose a picture of me with our first English Bulldog "Speckles", she was such a sweet girl, and I still miss her every single day. She loved water, this was taken at the river.

I just clustered mixed Prima blooms of the color scheme and used adhesive pearls for the centers. The chippies are Imaginarium Designs and I embossed them with WOW Embossing powders by Suzy West.

The sentiment sticker is from Anna Griffin.

This is my hidden journaling, it tucks behind the photo.

I used some older Basic Grey paper, the colors were absolutely perfect for the CSI color scheme! Please check out the other work over at Once Upon A Sketch and Color Stories Inspiration! Thanks so much for stopping by.

The winners  at Once Upon A..Sketch will be announced at the beginning of October and our Design Team will look at ALL the entries from ALL the challenges. So the more challenges you play along at, the more chances you have of being one of our challenge/prize winners or Top 5 Featured layouts. This is a little different to CSI who announce their "featured" layouts on a weekly basis. 

As mentioned before, everything will go back to normal in October and we will have a reveal October 1st as usual. So I hope you guys have fun and enjoy what we have planned for you. Don't forget that the entries for this challenge are due by  2:00pm Monday 1st of OctoberAustralian Eastern Standard Time

For this challenge, you must use :
*the SKETCH provided
* all the colours in the SCHEME
* at least 2 elements from the EVIDENCE 
* at least 1 element from the TESTIMONY!
