OUAS, TIDT and a Giveaway!!

I'm here, I'm here!! And I've got something to share! (in fact a lot, so maybe grab a cuppa)

The new sketch has gone up at Once Upon A Sketch and the challenge has began! And trust me when I say you need to go over and check this out because our Guest Designer has offered up a prize that's too good to resist! But firstly, here's my page.......

Journalling Criteria: Who is in the photo? Name the person in the photo and at least 1 fact about them. This can be personality, character, talent , achievement etc. but it must be at least 2 sentences long.
And of course, the sketch:

Now usually I'm on the side of the DT who submit pages for the 2nd sketch challenge every month, but this month I am super-duper-ly lucky to be the Guest Designer for Tidbitz in Time and I couldn't resist but use their amazingly fun July kit to whip up a page for this challenge.

This kit is amazing! The colours and textures here are right up my alley! The July kit is called 'Dream in Colour' and contains:
Five sheets 12 x 12 Girls' Paperie Patterned Paper - Jubilee Collection
Four sheets 12 x 12 Prima Marketing Patterned Paper - Melody Collection
Flocked Alphabet Stickers, Orange - Prima Marketing
Market Trims - Four yards - Girls' Paperie
Butterfly Kiss Melody - Two Pieces - Prima Marketing
Candy Gems (beads) - Two Pieces - Prima Marketing
Fabric Brads - Twelve Pieces - Girls' Paperie
Chipboard Pieces Melody - One 12 x 12 Sheet - Prima Marketing
Caboodles Flowers - 36 Pieces - Prima Marketing

So the only thing I've added to this page is the paper doily behind the photo because I needed something round to represent the circle in the sketch. I've journaled about my Mozzy Moo (as we regularly call Moodles) and how she remains quite a happy and joyful little toddler. She's always smiling, and of course, that means people are always happy around her in return.

So lots of wonderful goodies in this kit. And can you believe you will receive THIRTY-SIX gorgeous Prima flowers?! That's enough for me to sprinkle over every single one of my 4 or more projects that I plan on getting out of this kit. I'll be sharing the rest of my pages in the very near future, but in the meantime check out what the other Designers have done with it by looking in the gallery here, or blog here.

So I don't want to keep you in suspense any longer regarding our challenge prize........
Karola Witzcak is our very special Guest Designer at Once Upon a Sketch this month, and not only has she made a spectacular page for the challenge with some of her new papers, but she is sponsoring both the winner and a random participant to receive an entire collection!!! EeekkkkK!!!! I want to win!

Now if that hasn't given you enough to do already then just hold on a little bit longer.........................

As a way of making up for my recent abscences on my blog I'm offering my own GIVEAWAY too!! How about winning a $15 voucher to Two Peas in a Bucket?!! If you're interested then all you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I'll put your name into the draw.
If you're a follower of my blog leave a second comment for another chance to win, and if you blog about this giveaway I'll give you a third chance of winning :-)
I'll draw a winner next weekend on 9th or 10th.

Alrighty. Better hop to it!!
