Oh you girls simply love making it SO hard for us to choose the winners don't you? LOL! Voting was once again SOOOOOO close. There only a couple of points between the winner and the rest.
Before I announce the winner, the Design Team would like to acknowledge this beautiful layout by..
As beautiful and pretty this layout is, it is more the sentimental theme behind it all that touched many of us here at Once Upon A..Sketch. I have always said that my aim for this blog is to get people to journal more and more about things they normally wouldn't. Well, Maria is a lovely person, who is always so cheery, supportive and positive. I see her leaving comments on many people's blogs and you need to know that this layout was created a few days after a very tragic event ..a life changing event. I hope she was able to find some solace in creating this page and I hope we can all find 30 seconds out of our day to visit her post HERE to find out the meaning behind this layout and maybe leave her some love. It takes a lot to share this sort of thing with the world, but THANK YOU Maria for sharing your story with us.
Now, the winner of our December 1st challenge, that was a HUGE fave amongst the Design Team was..
