Once Upon A Sketch April Blog Hop


Hi everyone and welcome to the Once Upon A...Sketch blog hop. It is our 1 year anniversary! Yep..I cannot believe that it has been 1 year exactly that we started this little blog here and I am happy to report it has been such a wonderful experience and we will keep on going as long as we can.


We thought we would have a little blog hop today, to give you a chance to join in the fun and see the Design Team reveals at their blog, and win prizes along the way.


 It is so exciting to have you here and we hope you are inspired along the way to join in the fun and get creative!!You should have arrived here from Natalie Elphinstone's blog, but if you haven't you need to go back to the beginning of the list below so you don't miss out.
(please note that due to time differences there could be some broken links..please check back later as the blogs will be updated asap) 


and then back to Once Upon A...Sketch blog to leave your name on the list. 


Our new MONTHLY challenge has just been released! Each Design Team member has created their own  layout based on this sketch and journalling criteria and you need to follow the above list to see what they came up with. 

We would love to see what you create, so please link your project to back at the Once Upon A...Sketch blog. You DO NOT have to participate in the blog hop to enter this challenge.



Here is this month's challenge....

April Challenge

 The theme of this challenge is HOME. 
We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "HOME" however you like based on the following sketch. You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must incorporate this theme  and this sketch. 
And here is my example...


*Hidden Journalling which reads - 

Home is...the place I relax, the place I can fell like I can truely be myself. It's where I work and where I create. And most importantly, it's where all the people and things that are most precious to me are. Home is where I am at my happiest.
