Once Upon A...Sketch August Reveal!

**For my giveaway, please go HERE**

Hello again!! I'm back to share with you my layout for the August sketch challenge over at Once Upon A...Sketch!! We've got yet another fabulous sketch from Nadia, along with a pretty versatile theme to get your journaling going...

 Theme: Season (Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring)

We would like you to create a layout and interpret the theme "Season" 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 the sketch below. Please make sure that we see some sort of journalling on your layouts and please tell us where your journalling is . Hidden journalling is perfectly fine.

Ideas for journalling: current season in your part of the world, favourite season, seasonal traditions on your part of the word, a childhood memory, a summer romance, what summer/autumn/winter/spring brings for you, baby it's cold outside, summer loving, spring is in the air, autumn breeze, summer holidays, seasonal changes, etc etc. Anything goes ...

"Yum"
**Scrapbook Fantasies twine & cord used in my banners. Hidden journaling on the tag to the left of my title. The chipboard gate is Scrap FX and the large blue flower is one of the new Manor House Creations winter releases, which you can purchase HERE in the C'est Magnifique store! Also, just gotta love the new "Cashmere Dame" collection from Glitz Design- also available in the C'est Magnifique store HERE!**
