Once Upon A ... Sketch

This month Once Upon A ...Sketch journalling criteria / theme: HOLIDAYS/VACATION  
Have you printed out all those photos from your last holiday/vacation or most favourite holiday/vacation? We would LOVE to see them and hear all about it. With the theme of holidays/vacation for this challenge, we would love to hear about: your favourite holiday/vacation of all time or a favourite place you would LOVE to take a holiday in . Or how about the last holiday/vacation you went to?  Maybe you have not travelled yet? Then tell us about your DREAM HOLIDAY /VACATION destination. 
Here's the sketch. Love this sketch as I always like to scrap single photo for my LO.

Here's my take on this challenge:

For this layout, I used AC Ash Cardstock as background and layer some Dear Lizzy's pattern papers + a bit of Pink Paislee's Nantucket under the photo.I used mainly Studio Calico's Feb Main Kit here. Other than the ash background, I used mainly Teal / Blue color and Yellow color here to bring out the color of sky & beach. Simply adore the huge yellow butterfly that come with the SC Feb main kit. 

Digging into my stash & scraps when I have completed the layout and found this strings of blue pearls. It matched so perfectly to the title and add some interest to the white title.

I love love love the butterflies from My Mind's Eye - Miss Caroline

Back to the picture, it was taken on 10.10.10 in Batu Ferringgi Beach, Penang. We woke up early in the morning, walking on the beach and made some new doggie friends on the beach. Those shop owners by the beach actually have a few friendly, beach-bum doggie that enjoy their life to its fullest! Watching sunrise & sunset every day... how cool is that?

Bumming around the beach... It wasn't too sunny when we were there but we still had a lot of fun eating the famous penang food & also visit the Kek Lok Si temple. After bumming around in Singapore for 4 months, i have to get back to work finally. Oh.. I m gonna miss my scrapbooking & card-making life. Btw, I am also looking forward to my Taiwan trip in end of March.
