Once Upon A... Sketch - Inspiration/I am inspired by

Hello Everyone!
This is the first time I have joined in and shared a layout for
I loved the sketch and theme for this month...Inspiration/I am inspired by.....

This is the sketch

I turned it  clockwise

 and here is what I created....
{Dear Mum}
This wonderful person (my Mum) is a huge inspiration to me.
I love my Mum.
She is amazing, she is inspirational. She is beautiful inside and out.
So I wrote her a little message on this layout to let her know just how much she is loved.

Dear Mum,
Over the years I have watched  the wonderful way you've made life special for our family...
the moments of love and laughter,
the traditions and memories we will carry with us throughout our lives.
But most of all I've watched the way you have shown us the
 true meaning of love in everything you do.
You are the best Mum.
I'm happy you are mine
Thank you - We love you.

One of the things that drew me to this challenge site is that you need to add journaling to your layouts. It doesn't need to be much, and it can be hidden if you wish. Adding journaling to the front of my layouts is a rare thing. Sadly many of my layouts only have a title which tells the person reading it or looking at it very little. 
 I will be brave one day and actually hand write my journaling for a more personal touch.
I am not good at journaling, but I think  it is really important, so I can see myself joining in  with these challenges again. And I will let you in on another little secret...I love working with a sketch this is the perfect challenge for me.

Thanks for  visiting today.

Janice xx

The sketch woks beautifully this way with the landscape photo. The colour choice is perfect with your Mother's top and I love the cascading flowers. But, for me, a journal junkie, your tender words bring the whole page to life. Beautiful, beautiful Art. Fave for me :)
