It's A Girl Thing LO - The Scrapbook Store - Once Upon A Sketch

 I have not joined a challenge for a few months, so joined in with Once Upon A Sketch, with a gorgeous sketch by Nadia.  You can find the March Challenge details 'HERE'.  The theme, is 'Its the Weekend' and the sketch is below. 
For March, The Scrapbook Store sent two gorgeous collections to work with.  I used the Prima Marketing - Hello Pastel paper collection, teamed with a few elements from  Bo Bunny, including the scripted cardstock stickers, and a medium paper lace doily.     
I applied texture by adding some embossing using the Bo Bunny,  Distressed Textures rubber stamp, and further enhancement by applying texture paste, using the Prima Dots stencil.
My daughter loved the weekends, up early and ready to go - unlike school days.  Her favourite past-time for weekend activities was spending time riding, or roaming about the paddocks and Pine Tree's in eager search for porcupines, and Goanna's.  
 I have some lovely large blooms in my stash and rarely use them, but this one teamed perfectly with the large Hello Pastel flower. Hanging from the photograph is one of the gorgeous Vintage Trinkets - quiet heavy I must add!  Various areas I highlighted using the Say It In Crystals.
I used Imaginarium Designs chipboard elements to follow the theme of the sketch, painting each element in Snow Cap acrylic paint, and then sealing for a nice shine with Glossy Accents.
Materials:
Prima Marketing - Hello Pastel - Pastry Shoppe - Sugar Cube - Parfait - Powdered Petals
Imaginarium Designs - Steam Punk Clock, and It's A Girl Thing
Snow Cap and Shell Pink - Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dauber
Misc: PC Generated Journaling, Large Petals, Butterflies, Embossing Powder, and Heat Gun
