Key To My Heart

I'm trying to get in a couple of challenges before the end of the month.  I always enjoy the sketch challenges at Once Upon A Sketch and put this layout together last night.  The theme this month is anything goes and I chose a picture of my friend, and best hairdresser in the world, Julina and her sweet little one, Zoey.  For those of you who are wondering why I scrap so many pictures of Julina, I have been working on an album for her. 
and here is Nadia's gorgeous sketch:
I dug into my stash again and used up lots of those "oldies" by 7 Gypsies, Jenni Bowlin, 
Glitz Designs and Prima.
One of the requirements of Once Upon A Sketch is journaling.  Tucked behind the doily is hidden journaling with special words from a mother to her daughter:
I added a lot of masking and stamping and machine stitching:
Love this cluster with a large Prima flower, along with two Maya Road flowers and a Recollections bird:
For those of you celebrating Thanksgiving this Thursday, 
wishing you a wonderful day spent with family and friends.

Thanks for stopping by!
