Because,Because, Because, Because, Because.

Because it was a cold and grey day today
Because I was feeling glum
Because I’ve been wanting to make this page for a while
Because I was inspired by the 1st May challenge at Once Upon A Sketch 
I made this


I flipped the sketch a little…
moving the 3 pattern paper cluster


I only used 1 photo instead of 2 but backed the photo with many layers, and some stamping


I soooo wanted to use a luggage tag for the journaling but kept to the challenge criteria and used a journal spot


Seems this challenge blog gets me scrapping ‘deeper’ pages
Love challenges that get people to journal
Love going a little deeper Smile
Thanks for the inspiration Smile
