SO many wonderful entries and so SO hard for the designers to choose again. We had a HUGE 95 entries and it seems to me you all mostly agreed with the monthly challenge and the extra time to enter your layouts!
As always, THANK YOU all for your supporting our challenges. We just absolutely LOVE reading your journalling and see what you all come up with.
Now, please just remember that we DO require some journalling on your layouts. As I said last month we are allowing you to write "as much or as little as you like" but just clarifying with you all that it does not mean you simply use the journalling prompt in you title :) We do indeed need to see some journalling or record of what your layout is about :)
As I mentioned earlier in the month, from this month onward we will have more than 1 winner per challenge and a further few featured layouts due to the huge number of entries we are receiving. This is because there are simply TOO MANY wonderful entries and voting is close every month so why not feature more of you that stand out?
SO here we go with the new winners format!

Tiffany Morgan (USA)
* Tiffany has hidden journalling under the peg on the left hand side of her layout.
What a STUNNING layout. I do not know what warms up the heart more, that gorgeous baby with the super cute eyes and mouth or the way this layout has been put together with so much love and care? Tiffany, the colours you have used here just go SO beautifully together. Your embellishments, ever so soft, look so gorgeous together with that amazing picture and beautiful details everywhere! Your heart felt journalling was also just lovely to read. Well done Tiffany!
Anna Zaprzelska (Poland)
Anna took a different approach to our HOME theme..She journalled about her dream home and Anna, I agree! That looks like an amazing place to live. Anna has a very soft and layered but clean style and a busy photo like that isnt lost on her gorgeous layers and cluster of embellishments and flowers. I also love that she fitted quite a bit of journalling on a small tag like that and that string going over your journalling tag and photo ties everything together so well Anna. Just stunning work!
Kay Fatula (USA)
Yet another stunner from our loyal supporter here at Once Upon A..Sketch, Kay! Just look at all the detailed stitching, the way little details peek at you and the way we can see a little of the journalling to want to read more. Once again, perfect colour choice and beautiful pictures! Beautiful Kay :)
Lynnda Hosni (Australia)
What an awesome take on the sketch Lynnda! FANTASTIC cluster you have created here and I believe that is your journalling on the left hand side? You have interpreted this challenge so beautifully and added many pictures and this is what we like here at Once Upon A..Sketch..people thinking outside the square! Beautiful elements all around your page! Lovely work :)
