May Challenge @ Once Upon A...Sketch (and my RAK WINNER!!)

Whew! Where did this week go?! Hard to believe it's already Friday here- but it is most definitely welcomed!!

Today I'm here to share with you the latest challenge at Once Upon A...Sketch- and don't forget to check the end of my post for the WINNER of my RAK from the C'est Magnifique Blog Hop this past weekend :)!

"6 Years"
It's incredible to me that over 6 years have gone by since my husband and I first got together. It was really nice to do a layout about him as I don't generally get the chance, and I likely would not have gotten this milestone recorded hadn't I been prompted by the latest challenge at Once Upon A...Sketch!


Theme: Numbers!!!

This month, we ask you to include a number , ANY number, on your layout. It has to be VISIBLE on your layout and it can be in your title or part of your journalling. It can be a date, an age, a house number, an anniversary, the number of children you have, the number of pets ....anything you like. But please make sure that there is some explanation through your journalling, somewhere on your page or blog about what this number means to you. 

Your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch below. 

Let's take a look at some closeups :)

I've stamped this Blue Fern Studios "Vintage Key" piece to match other elements in my layout. Such a simple process but I always love the result!

 The chipboard cogs are from the "Widgetworks" pack from Blue Fern Studios :)

I love this splat mask from The Crafter's Workshop. Here I've used texture paste to give it some added body.

My hidden journaling :)

The deadline for this challenge is midnight May 25th Australian Eastern Standard Time. I'm excited to see eveyrone's entries- always interesting to see how the sketch and the journaling prompt are interpreted :).

NOW...on to the WINNER of my RAK from the C'est Magnifique Blog Hop!

After compiling all of the eligible entries and excluding duplicates, I randomized the list, numbered it, and entered it into random.org:
