Once Upon A Sketch

I really have missed Once Upon A Sketch, so I thought I would try to play along with this months challenge. The sketch is beautiful and the journaling theme is "journey". I thought it would be perfect to scrap Jenna's maternity pics! If you haven't played along at OnceUponASketch, you really should, the inspiration is amazing and there are some AWESOME prizes!

Here is the sketch for this challenge:

Now here is my entry:

I used the Kaleidoscope template and ramdomly chalked some white around the elements. I inked the edges of the yellow paper with blue chalk ink and added a liquid pearl accents. The little balloon is Imaginarium Designs. I embossed it and added little pearl accents as well, then added a star sticker and twine.

I took one of the Fancy Pants buttons and added a miniature rose and twine!

Just a few more close-ups.

I made a little flower cluster with Prima "Got Flowers" and some Imaginarium leaves. I tied a little twine bow to finish it off.

I added foam dots for dimension behind the middle photo. The alpha stickers were white, so I used black alcohol ink on them.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I really do appreciate it!!!  :)
