Now here is a familiar face! Helen is one of our past Design Team members who has stayed loyal to us. Well Helen the design team LOVED your layout. It might have been the last one added to the gallery but boy did it stand out to us. Perfect picture..amazing flower cluster and honest journalling! Well done!

Lynnda Hosni (Australia) 

Oh another loyal fan of Once Upon A..Sketch. Lynnda has been with us since the beginning and I am so happy she is being recognised :) Your layout was just stunning Lynnda. That paint dripping and the white space, together with the beautiful journalling made this one a winner. You have also won a paper kit from Julia Cotrim Scrapbooking. 

Amelia Khalik (Malaysia) 
Amelia we loved the artsy and tiny bit messy look to your layout. The alphabet background is striking and the little details and splatter of paint here and there make this a beautiful layout visually while your simple journalling is all that is needed . Well done! You have won your self a a $10.00 voucher from The Scrap Locker. 

Alicia Redshaw (Australia) 

Now this one has to be seen to be believed so I encourage you to click on Alicia's name to see just how she included her hidden journalling. VERY clever Alicia. We loved your layout simply because its bright and happy and just perfect for our theme. This is a perfect birthday layout. Fantastic work!
