Some awesome inspiration from our Guest Designers from The Flying Unicorn!

Hello everyone!

Today we have something extra to show you.. some AMAZING inspiration from the design team of our monthly sponsor and friend of Once Upon A...Sketch, The Flying Unicorn!

The Flying Unicorn Online store 
Flying Unicorn.. it’s about One of a Kind. We offer an incredible selection of products for all paper crafting artists. Our Kit of the Month if filled with the latest and greatest and includes an off the page project to keep your creative muse flowing! Our forums, a hot and happening place which includes monthly challenges, tips, techniques and friendships that last! 

You will find The Flying Unicorn HERE 

The Flying Unicorn and Once Upon A...Sketch have teamed up this month and some of our girls worked with the Kit Of The Month, while The Flying Unicorn team used our sketch to create one of their layouts for this month. 

So let's have a look at how they did!

This is what the April Kit Of The Month looks like..The winner of our challenge will win THIS kit!!!

and here is our challenge..

Journalling Theme: "An event that changed my life..." 

You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. It is for your inspiration and this theme word DOES NOT need to be part of your title or journalling. But please make sure your layout is based on the sketch below and includes journalling (hidden journalling is fine). Acceptable journalling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long. Remember, hidden journalling (under a photo/tag or behind your page) is perfectly fine but please DO let us know in your post where your journalling is! 

First up is my take on this...And yes even though this is my challenge blog, I also design for The Flying Unicorn and was very lucky to work with this awesome kit!!! 

I also have a step x step video tutorial of how I created this layout at my YouTube channel HERE 

Now here are the girls from The Flying Unicorn!

And this is The Flying Unicorn's Guest Designer for April, the lovely...
