Once Upon A Sketch

Well it's March!  And with the new month comes a new challenge over at Once Upon A Sketch! I do hope you play along with us! :)

The challenge:

Journaling Criteria: The focus of your journaling and the theme of your layout has to be based on YOU and the one thing that you are really good at. Don't be shy! We are all good at something as small or as big as it might be.  It is so easy to name off the things we can't do well or what we want to improve on, but it's nice to recognize that we are good at some things too and it is absolutely ok to acknowledge those things! 

You MUST combine the journaling criteria with this sketch:
My Layout:

Well I choose not to focus on one specific thing I am good at, but to name a few things I like about myself...a few things I think I am good at which make me a good person.  :)

Here's my layout: 


So I did this layout before knee surgery and took the picture then as well.  But didn't catch in time that there was something on the lense.  I tried to edit is as well as I can, but it still looks a bit blurry to me...just in the middle, sorry about that.  The close ups looks a bit better, but there's nothing I can do about this one right now.  Oh well, right. 

Everything comes from Fancy Pants, from their Be You collection.  I love love love this fun collection. 

Here's the close up's:

I really hope you play along with us this!!!! You have until March 14th to upload your entry here. Can't wait to see what YOU do! :)


Thanks so much for stopping in today!!!!  Today is Hayden's birthday!  He turns 7!  He's a bit bummed we aren't having a big party right now, but I hope to play some games and just spend some nice time together today.  We will have family over to celebrate this weekend, but can't do too much because I am still laid up on the couch.  I hope to convince him that games with mommy on the couch can be just as fun.  ;)  We did buy Hugo too...so we get to watch that. 

Have a wonderful day!
