December Snow Mixed Media Layout for the OUAS Final Challenge

It's time for our Once Upon A...Sketch December Reveal.

December Journaling Theme ~ "It's December . . ."

This will be our final challenge:

Our OUAS founder, Nadia Cannizzo, has realized with her growing family, that it is time for these delightful and inspiring challenge to come to a close, so this will be our final challenge. I hope many of you will join us for this challenge despite the busyness of the holiday season to show Nadia your support during this final challenge. To read Nadia's farewell comments, please stop by the OUAS blog to read Nadia's farewell comments HERE.

The crisp, cold days of December in Ohio bring snow.
I've always been in awe of the beauty God creates in each and every flake.

"December Snow"

Journaling Theme: "It's December..." 

You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. It is for your inspiration and this theme word DOES NOT need to be part of your title or journaling. But please make sure your layout is based on the sketch below and includes journaling (hidden journalling is fine). Acceptable journaling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long. Remember, hidden journaling (under a photo/tag or behind your page) is perfectly fine but please DO let us know in your post where your journaling is!

I've flipped the sketch for my page.

I'll be posting my Tips and Techniques with lots of close-up photos
on December 9th, so please drop back then for all the details.

I do have a couple photos to share showing my hidden journaling
on the back of a tag tucked behind my photo.
