Happily Ever After

Well it's that time of year I love - CHA. I love seeing all the new products but even more than that I love that we all come together in forums to chat, share ideas and take part in challenges (and you know how I love a challenge). 

I have had this sketch from ScrapFriends on my desk for a while now but just needed the right reason to use it: 

I also wanted to do a challenge from the 2Peas CHA Challenges which was to use a single colour on a layout (you could also use neutrals) and I decided to challenge myself even more and use a colour I wouldn't normally use... yellow. I do use yellow but not in the way I have here, normally asked to pick a single colour for a layout I would lean towards a pale blue or a pink. 

So I started putting my supplies together but I didn't have a photo that would work. Yesterday I started a photography project called 13/13 (I will tell you more about that later in the week) and I had been out and about in my suburb taking some pics when I stumbled upon a black board in an alley way with the words "once upon a time" painted on it. As soon as I saw it I knew it was destined for my layout. 


Once I printed the picture out it all came together and it really was a happily ever after. 

Thanks for stopping by,
