Once Upon A...Sketch November Reveal

**For my November giveaway, please go HERE**

Hi everyone! It's that time again- to reveal the latest sketch challenge at Once Upon A...Sketch! And this month, it's an easy one: ANYTHING GOES!! Yep, that's right- you are free to journal about whatever you please, as long as you use the sketch put out by the fabulous Nadia Cannizzo~!

I've been wanting to do a layout about my daughter's "snort face" for a LONG time...I think most babies do this at some point...crinkle up their faces and breathe in and out really fast with their noses :). My daughter has done this since she was VERY young...and still continues to do it now, at just a little over a year old~! It's pretty obnoxious- she knows it gets a laugh (which is why she does it), and I have many pictures of this not-so-pretty face, lol!

See for yourself!

"Snort"

And here is this month's fabulous sketch (which I have rotated to the right):

And a closer look!

I added plenty of texture to this piece with modeling paste, beads, baubles, glitter, gesso...lots of love!


This beautiful purple cord is from Scrapbook Fantasies! I love the little bit of interest it brings to my cluster :).

I used two different color fonts for my title to help it stand out a little more...

Du har den sødeste lille datter, og alle små børn elsker at skære ansigter, du skulle se nogle jeg har af mine børnebørn. Og dit LO er helt vidunderligt farverigt, med de dejligste blomster og anden pynt. knus morkaren.

She is a sweet little dolly, I remember my adorable little grandaughter doing this...she is in collage now! She used to do it until I had tears running down my legs! hehehe! It's great that you documented it!
