My Happy Place - OUAS November

Hello and thanks for stopping by today.   'My Happy Place' and the below sketch are the challenge at Once Upon A Sketch for November and today I managed to put something together.  I had been playing with the papers and photo for a few days  (think it was because it was a rare occasion - scrapping a pic of myself as there are not many)

I have used mainly the Prima Delight collection and also a Dusty Attic Name Plate.  

 The photo is of the afternoon Jake came home from hospital at 6 days old.   He is now 6 weeks old - how time flies. 
 I used a word template with texture paste and  irridescent medium to add some texture to the base layer.  Some Acetate squares were  added for extra dimension.
 The challenge requires journaling so I included it on a tag behind the name plate.  Being able to spend time with to precious grandsons is definitely my 'happy place'.  My only regret is that we do not live closer... 



Below is the sketch. 

 Thanks again for visiting.

Have a good week.

Dianne
