OUAS & Get Creative sisterhood!!!





Hello bloggers!!!
A few changes and surprises at OUAS this time...

Over at Once Upon A...Sketch, we are nearing the end of our first year and during this time we have noticed a huge amount of support from many countries around the world and we are incredibly lucky that our challenges are supported by so many people from all different parts of the globe. One of these countries is Greece, and we have come to realise that we receive many entries from such a small country where scrapbooking is so new, so we had a think and decided to team up with another challenge blog based in Greece and run by our very own Irini Liolia called Get Creative. How exciting!! We have decided to become "sister" blogs, because let's face it...most of us scrapping are women and is there anything stronger than a sisterhood? So for this month only, the Design Team from Once Upon A..Sketch are guests over at Get Creative and taking part in their 1st and 15th of the month challenges and the Design Team from Get Creative are guests on Once Upon A..Sketch! Thus a new bond is formed between 2 challenge blogs. 

Here is the sketch that the Once Upon A..Sketch Design Team had to follow. It is created by Get Creative Design Team member Elina Katechi
And here is my take on the sketch...
I did a lot of fussy cutting, distressing, misting, painting, punching...well, I had FUN!!!!
The happy colors and the angelic face of Nefeli, also helped my mood!



To make this cut below, I drew inspiration from Melinda whose style I love SOOO much!!!
Thanks Melinda...it is just a small cut...I was afraid to make something bigger..one step at a time...lol
The scissors chip is Imaginarium designs and the heart & button are Purple Pumpkin!!!


Below ID butterfly which I colored with Sakura pens and added blings!!!




Below: The button is PP and the crochet butterfly is "Eye candy magic"




So head on over to the Get Creative blog to see what the rest of the Design Team created and to find out what prizes etc are up for grabs and then visit Once Upon A...Sketch to see the February 1st challenge. 

Materials used:

Papers: Echo Park
Sticker letters: Echo Park
Dotted buttond & Vinyl heart: Purple Pumpkin
Crochet butterfly: Eye candy magic
Acrylic paints: Ranger dabbers

Enjoy Scrapping!!!!!!!!!!!

Came by to say how much I looooove this bright, happy LO - it has so much going on [in a very good way!]. Congrat's on making the cut [hee hee!!]...love those random circles, too, they look great:):)

Hi right back, Vicki...you'll have to wait 'til you're almost 50, the girls' have "left the nest" & maybe then you'll get that room:):) Nah...hopefully it will all happen much more quickly for you. Anyway, you produce fantastic work without the room - so you don't really need it at all [hee hee!!] Happy scrapping:):)

Your page made me smile, Vicky - it's bright, fun and cheerful!!! Even though it's so full of details, shapes and colours, the photo is so intense that it stands out among the embellishments! Fabulous work as always!!
