I always love playing along with 'Once upon a Sketch' challenges. I love the combination of a sketch and journaling prompt. This months challenge is 'The best day of your life'. The first thing that sprang to mind was the birth of my children, but obviously with 6 kids I have 6 best days and it is impossible to choose between them. So I decided to take a more light-hearted approach to this one and scrap our first day at Disneyland which is definitely up there amongst the highlights of my life to date. The group photo I chose is one that I originally didn't think was 'good enough' to warrent a page but I really love the memories that flood back when I look at it. we were sitting on the sidewalk at highstreet Disney waiting for the 'Soundsational' parade to begin. We were all so happy and excited :) I paired it with a photo of Minnie Mouse in the parade and chose really bright, happy colours to match the theme.
My papers are mainly Amy Tan (I love her designs they scream fun and joy!) I painted, sprayed and inked the background to my heart's content, then used my chevron mask to add some depth to the design.
Here are a couple of close-ups so you can read my journaling if you so desire :)))
