OUAS Dec. Challenge (with Swirlydoos + Helmar adhesives)

(For Meg's Garden Blog hop see next post - 15 PRIZES)

Today is the reveal day for the Once Upon a Sketch (OUAS) challenge for December and my last post using the gorgeous November Swirlydoos "Nouveau" kit. I adored the beautiful Kaisercraft papers and flowers in this kit! I used the teal Silks paint (included in the main kit) on the title and bird in the birdcage. I am in love with this brand of paint/glaze. Also included in the main kit is a cute stamp set - I used the hot air balloon and stamped in grey to match the birds in the bottom left of the paper.

The picture is hubby and I on a boat cruise with our tour guides.

The theme is "December" for the OUAS challenge  - so why did I do a tropical layout? Because my wedding anniversary is December 1st... and I was married in the Bahamas. I hate the winter so when the snow starts to fall I start dreaming of the ocean and the beach. Don't get me wrong I love Christmas - just wish I was decorating palm trees instead of spruce trees.

Hidden journaling reads: One fine day we will be living the best of both worlds, Summer and Fall in Canada and then become snow birds for Winter and Spring. I love the fact that December always starts with fabulous memories of our tropical wedding (before we get knee deep in snow).

Here is a close-up of my handmade flower from my recent DIY "mistable" flower tutorial.

Here is a peek at the current OUAS challenge. I hope you can play along this month! Check out the amazing DT reveal this month and the terrific prizes up for grabs! Thank you Imaginarium Designs for sponsoring the chipboard on my layout (corners, title and fence).

This project was created with the special help of Helmar Adhesives - especially my two favorites: the Premium Craft glue for paper and 450 Quick Dry for flowers and embellishments. I also used the acid-free glue for the chipboard too!
