Once upon a Sketch - finally...

Although I have followed and marvelled at the creations from this site, I have never entered one of their challenges. The details and the wonderful work of the guest Dt are here.

And on the last possible day I have pulled together an entry. yay.


I think it's quite a bit different to my usual style, quite subdued but I love this photo and the memories that go with it.

We had been travelling in a van from Vietienne to Vietnam, with much of the first day along the Mekong. We stopped in a small town for lunch and this was the view, looking across to Thailand. We then turned east and headed 'inland' towards the mountains, the roads got rougher and the traffic busier (a bit scary at times to be honest) but that first day was just wonderful.

Just about all the elements in this Lo are from a collab kit {worn} from One little bird and Sahlin Studio and is available here.


and it's your last day to enter Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge Valentines Day blog hop, check out details here and my give away here.

And it is now a bit over two weeks to go until I start my week long walking for charity (well not all day, everyday - just a lot more than I'm use to..) so if you would like to donate check out the details here. And updated prize list here. All to help women help themselves out of poverty.

Lots of yummy prizes up for grabs!!

Apparently we are about to get a lot of rain but the big fall hasn't arrived yet, may miss us this time (for once we have had enough rain over summer!).

have good one. xx
