Jump! November Once Upon a Sketch Challenge

I had a great time yesterday pulling out my October Swirlydoos kit and some elements from the new November kit that arrived and set to work on this months sketch at OUAS. Here is the gorgeous sketch from Nadia...

And here is my take on the sketch...
Lots of Prima goodies here, old book pages, some Kaiser Periwinkle and Simple Stories Fabulous paper... My hidden journaling on the tags behind the photo talk about the wonderful time the girls and I had this summer hanging out with my brother and his girlfriend Nupur (fellow jumper in the photo!) in Astoria, Oregon! I really wanted to scrap this wonderful photo.
I thought I would focus in on the flower cluster...I love that sunflower vine, those bulbs and the clock, but what I wanted to show was the book page! Jane Austen is a favorite author of mine and her novel Persuasion is one of my favorites...my second hand copy I had since my teen years fell apart and I decided it would be perfect to add to scrapbook pages! The page I tore out today has a great quote on it, mentioning the hero of the story and his looks, "Irish, I dare say"!!! Wonderful to have that extra bit of specialness on the layout!

I also found a lovely new challenge site to me, Scrap the Girls! Since I have two girls that I always scrap photos of, I thought it would be fun to enter. This month's challenge is teal, orange and white, perfect for these Swirlydoos papers, so I would love to enter this in their challenge too!

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit!

Oooh such brilliant vibrant colours and wonderful take on the sketch! love the clock and Prima goodies. The red bow makes such a beautiful statement, like the cherry on the cake.
