**Blessings** OUAS and Swirlydoos Round Robin

Sometimes, people cross your path in life, and you wonder why. I believe that God just wants to send you a dose of daily blessings. This is my dear Swirly friend Jennifer. She keeps us laughing with the adventures of Escape Kitty, she teaches us to keep the earth friendly with her use of recycled material in her scrapping, she always has a kind word to say, and she is terrific company on a Photoshoot!!! She is really a dose of blessing in my day.
This is also my Noteworthy thought I had this week and thought it perfect for the Once Upon A Sketch Challenge. I thought about all of the people who make me smile every day. An event that happens all the time. They are just a dose of daily blessings.
I am also leading my team at Swirlydoos in this months Round Robin, and this is my entry. I love Round Robin. The challenge is always wonderful. The twist this time is to use something at least a year old..That would be my K and Company paper. Thank You Peggy, for another wonderful challenge!!

The October 1st "Once Upon A Time" Sketch...
I used Spellbinders Sunflower Dies to create the Passion Flower Daisies.I painted Dusty Attic with Shimmers paint.

The leaves are a beautiful Stamp and Die from Heartfelt Creations. I used Glimmer Mist and Lindy's Spray on them for color shine and shimmer.


I did some quilling. These are bleeding hearts.


Here is a file for the butterflies I used on this layout. They are perfect for your Fall layouts. Just left click on the image to make it bigger, then left ckick and save to your computer, print on 5x7 cardstock. After you cut them out, rubbing on a little Rock Candy Stickles brings out the color in them.

Your work is spectacular as always. What beautiful color, flowers and the quilling. I have never seen it before. You are always so generous do u have a tutorial on quilling. I don't know how I got here but glad I found your blog. I also love Jen and her humor and Escape Kitty. When I read her posts I get so involved in her stories. I am not sure what OUAS means but I am coming back next month of check out your stuff. I know there will be something that will inspire me. Most of all ty for your generous and kind spirit.
