Once Upon a Time

Today, my blog post is all about story telling.
I've just launched this months challenge over on Cocoa Daisy
'Once Upon A Time'.

The challenge is to create a page that tells a story.
Steering away from the regular 'who-where-when'.
A page that maybe had you not have made, this story could well have been forgotten weeks, months, years down the line.

It could be something silly, a funny story, maybe how you met your partner or how you chose your kids names. A day out...the ideas and stories are endless.
I love telling stories through scrapbooking and encourage others to do this, this month too.

Here's my page using this months Cocoa Daisy kit:

and my story.



I love this kit so much.
Love the colours, the texture and oooohhhh the papers are to scrap for.



Come over to Cocoa Daisy if you fancy joining in.
You can read more about the challenge and prize here. The deadline is 10th March.
There are still a few more kits if you fancy treating yourself here. Lots of Sassafras, a great bubblewrap stamp, cute rubbons, thickers...it's a yummy kit.

Lots of love xxx

I really love this page, did you use your sewing machine? Mushrooms are also a favorite ( not ) in our house and if the kids are misbehaving we always threaten them with mushroom pie !!
