It's time to reveal to you the latest challenge over at Once Upon A...Sketch!
As you know, every month OUAS provides you with not only an amazing sketch, but a motivating journaling prompt. This month is no different- just take a look at what you've got to work wtih!
Journaling Theme: Luck
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 . You are allowed to journal in any language but please tell us where on your page we will find your journalling. Remember journalling has to be a bit more than a title, or a generic comment. Hidden journalling is perfectly fine.
I created a layout sample for this challenge. When I first saw the sketch, I thought- OOH! Three photos...three kids...I know how lucky I am to have them. Even printed pictures of the kids and was ready to start. But then I thought of how much time I've spent recently reflecting on what an amazing husband I have- and it's been a while since I've scrapped him, so I went that direction instead ;)
I have the perfect package of a husband: loving, hard working, funny, patient, amazing father, understanding...I really wish for everyone to find someone like him. Before him, I thought it was normal to fight and say terrible things to one another. But in our almost 7 years he has never said anything even remotely mean to me- and I don't even think we've ever had a real "fight". We've bickered a few times- but he is so laid-back (whereas I'm NOT) and when I get piped up, he just stays calm. As I was creating this layout, I had a particular Martina McBride song stuck in my head. There's a line in it that says:
"When there's dark clouds in my eyes, he just sits back and let 'em roll on by. Come in like a lion, go out like a lamb...my baby loves me just the way that I am."
SO true for Josh and I! I'm the hot head- and he accepts and loves me for it regardless.
When choosing the color pop for this layout, I'd originally thought blue. Josh peeked in a few times to see what I'd decided on, and was surprised to see I'd gone with yellow. I figured I haven't used it in a while, so why not?
I've used just a ton of Prima products on this one- even digging in my stash for some of the older stuff. The stamps are from the Printery collection, which is one of my all-time favorites. And what do you think of the new Ingvild Bolme pieces? I just LOVE the little steering wheel from the Car Parts pack- way too adorable!

Oh, Josh desperately wanted me to use one of the spark plug pieces- he thought they were manly enough for him ;) And I wanted to do that for him...but I just couldn't find the "right" one/fit. But when I noticed the word "Luck" on one of the Vintage Water Taps- I knew I had the perfect embellishment!
