July 1st Challenge

So ..I have become addicted to doing the challenges over at Once Upon A Sketch.  They are challenging and I am loving that they are making me do things I wouldnt normally in my layouts..ESPECIALLY journalling...I am shocking at journalling on my photos..I often hide it.
The July 1st challenge is as follows

Journalling Criteria: Who is in the photo? Name the person in the photo and at least 1 fact about them. This can be personality, character, talent , achievement etc. but it must be at least 2 sentences long. 

So, using a photo of our youngest , taken on her Birthday which she was lucky enough to be in Bali for, this is my take on the sketch

I have used FOR THE RECORD paper and embellishments for this one.  I made 2 flowers for the bottom corner..I love these they are so easy and look GREAT.  I don't usually spray on my page so this was another challenge for me here.  Very happy with how its turned out and cant wait till the 15th for their new challenge.  I have several more lay outs to upload....if I get some free time today.  Thank you for looking ....
