"Once Upon a Sketch" October Challenge
Remember the Good Times

 Hi everyone - this is my layout for the October Challenge over at

The challenge is:

We would like you to create a layout based on this quote. 
You can interpret it ANY way you like. 
There is no wrong or right way to interpret this quote
  but your layout must incorporate something from this quote
 AND the sketch below.


Christmas is my favourite time of the year and this quote
 inspired me to do the page.

I've tucked a copy of the quote and my journalling tag behind the photos
to add a bit more layering to my page.

I just had to use this cute 2 Crafty Santa.  I think he adds just
 the right amount of whimsy and fun associated with children
at Christmas.

Lots of lovely Green Tara flowers and some Christmas Tree garlands
upside down to make a banner.

Why not pop over to their Blog and Facebook page and check out their fabulous 
product range.

Thanks so much for dropping by.

Luv, Jan xx
