3 challenges in one...

This layout is for 3 different challenges. The first one I want to enter it in is a pink ninja challengeat sketch thursdays! their prompt went like this:
Prompt - Fill in the blanks: "If I could __________, I would ________."

Technique - Mist or paint IN PINK.

Sketchy Twist - Use this sketch:

I used pink paint to paint my cork and black glimmer mist on top of that. and to fill in the prompts its in my journaling. if I could have a baby right now I would!
the second challenge I want to enter this in is the dirty scraps challenge! which went like this:
Dirty Scraps Challenge #5:

We all have them...hopes, dreams, fears... but this time I wanted to concentrate on those dreams, more specifically acknowledging those shattered dreams. Scrap about a shattered dream.Maybe your dream was to have 2.5 kids a home and a successful career. But you are divorced and raising the kids on your own. Maybe your dream was to be a dancer? Heck maybe it was to be a secretary? We all grow up and even if they are not our prominent dreams and we are completely satisfied with our current lives...we all had those dreams that sort of flew away. I love my life but I can think of several dreams I did not see through. It's NOT a bad thing, it is just life and the way life flows. I truly believe it is a positive thing because out path in life leads us on many roads, not just the ones we plan for. You can take this layout in any direction you want :)
Now go get dirty!

and the third chalenge was for the candyshoppe blog

Think it's garbage? Think again! The Lollipop Girls of C.S.D. are challenging you Sweethearts to use everyday items from around your house that you wouldn't normally use on your LO's and use them! Items such as cardboard, duct tape, dryer sheets, you name it!
for this i used the recycled cork board and the baubles from a floral arrangement!

so wish me luck ladies!!!

and now the details of the layout...
I used a piece of cork from the garage which was supposed to be my recycled item for the other challenge i wanted to enter this in. then I used the pink ninja sketch.
my shattered dream for the dirty scraps part was being able to be a mother.
I sugar coated all the leaves and marbles for this layout. and doodled a bit in white.

I hope you all like it!
