Once Upon a Sketch has a new challenge up!

My apologies for getting this up 5 days after it went 
live but let's blame it on the silly season shall we?!  
There's a lot going on!!
December 15th Challenge

Journalling Criteria/themeOur Christmas traditions. 

We would love to hear how everyone spends Christmas Day. 
Even if you do NOT celebrate Christmas, what do you do
on Christmas Day?

Remember that you are allowed to also create a card or 
altered project based on this sketch and instead of the
journalling criteria you need to use a quote. 

Guest Designers

Ivana Camdzic  (Canada) 

Ivana says: "The quote I used doesn't have too much to do 
with Christmas, but since the only family we have here in
Canada is our friends, we spend the holidays with them 
and that is one of our new traditions during the
So I decided to create a card about friendship"

Our runner up from our November 15th Challenge
Rachael Funnell  (Australia)
