Once Upon A ...Sketch - February Challenge

Although I have often drooled over the layouts of the designers and participants, I have never entered a challenge at Once Upon A...Sketch....until this month! I loved the sketch and the topic, so thought I'd do a little ode to my children.
Here is the sketch:

The topic is: LOVE
More details can be found here.

And my layout:

The texture paste has had paint added to it, which I've done on a couple of previous layouts, but this time, I also sprinkled some fine glitter over it because I wanted the page to have a little sparkle. There are a few die-cuts (LOVE my die-cuts), and some older products - Kaiser, Basic Gray and Bo Bunny paper as well as some older Kaiser elements (pink stalks, rub-ons, black acetate frame).

The journaling reads:
I love that you get along
I love how you play together
I love you for your own uniqueness
I love that I am your mummy.

I feel very blessed that my children don't fight and argue, but play really well together. They are all so different, yet manage to get along so well. Love this.

There is just over a day to get your challenge in.
If you miss this one, don't forget that Paper Stories still has their challenge open for a few more days!

Thanks for looking.:-)
