Falling 4 U.... SketchMania#20

I gotta confess, this week's SketchMania#20 from umWowStudios was difficult for me; I had no clue what to do until I just made myself sit down & do it. But I'm VERY happy with the results
My Creation:
Journaling (or what I call journaling, lol)
The Details:
The Sketch:
Products Used: Printed Paper & brown letters-Fancy Pants Hot Chocolate; Blue Leaf-Making Memories Autumn Splendor; 4, pearls & all ink-CTMH; GrungeBoard-Tim Holtz Swirls; Yellow Ribbon-Making Memories 5th Avenue; brown & blue ribbons-Hobby Lobby;Javq Walnut Ink; yellow u-MyLittleShoebox


Our families will be here for Thanksgiving so I wanted to make a little change, these use to have photos or art we'd each one on one of these (one for each of us) but that was looking a little messy and we just weren't updating it very often. I saw someone on Crop Chocolate do something similar....
