OUAS- a sketchy card

It's challenge time again over at Once Upon a Sketch     

This challenge was one I thought about for a long time. I know there's probably lots of things I could have said I do well. We all do. But there's one thing that stood out to me. I 'm good a seeing the funny side of things and my take really was all about that.
Mary Poppins said it so well. "Practically perfect in every way." No self esteem issues there.
Now if only I had a spoon full of magic! 

Come and join in our challenge. It's fun and there's great prizes.
Happy scrapping,

March 1st Challenge

Journalling Criteria/Theme:
All About Me!

The focus of your journalling and the theme of your layout has to be based on YOU and something/s that you are really good at. Don't be shy! We are all good at something as small or as big as it might be.

Ideas for journallingbeing a good mum, cooking, talking, understanding people, organising, cleaning, gardening, studying, computers, fashion, exercising, scrapbooking, good at my job, maths, languages, writing , drawing, painting, photography, running, craft, sewing. Maybe you can talk about an aspect of your personality..your sensitivity, your 6th sense, your patience, your strength or bravery, your ability to stay positive. 

Remember that you are allowed to also create a card or altered project based on this sketch and theme and instead of the journalling criteria you need to use a quote.

You MUST combine our journalling criteria with this sketch..
And here's my take on Nadia's sketch.

"Practically perfect in every way"  What more can I say! Hee hee.
The things we do for scrapping. It cost me $8 to buy the Butterrick pattern that had this pic on the front!lol
                      I'm sending it to my sister who is such a perfectionist around the house.
                           I'm always asking her to visit me so some of it will rub off. lol
                             Some layering.
    Oh she looks so prim and proper, Mrs Stepford!
