UKS & Pencil Lines Combined!!!

I have combined the two challenges this week. I have used the Pencil Lines sketch #24, although it has a slight twist to it & I have done it to match the UKS challenge.
Spring Theme 10pts well it is my birthday & it is March, springtime.
Pink for Mother's Day 10pts pink flowers & card journal strips
Single picture 5pts pencil lines sketch had 3 but I didnt need more with this pic.
at least 1 bloom 5pts I've used 6. 30 bonus points 40 total.

Chipboard flower relief painted purple, flower in the middle of it has a purple dragonfly brad.
Flowers given to me for my birthday from Pearl & also from my teamie Rach.
Ornate photo corner also a birthday gift...


Well this week has been pretty amazing. I have had such a fantastic time & I got the photos back from the photographer on Thursday night. They are fab. This is one of my particular favs as I look natural as opposed to posing for the camera. My Dad & sister will each get a copy to remind them of this milestone in my life.
I fully lived up to my HAPPY word this week. I really do feel quite different. Full of excitement of good things to come. Here's hoping, I am some 10 years behind on good stuff!!!
Due to reasons I can't explain on here, I can't do the DCM card dare this week. It would be too hurtful for others.
Tonight I am going out for a meal with my Dad & might not get back here until Sunday evening, so have great weekends all, whatever you are up to.xx
