"Wonder" of December for Once Upon a Sketch

This is one of my all time favorite pictures of my granddaughter. At 11 months old, toys weren't important that year.  She was all about climbing into the window sill from the back of the couch!
The look on her face with the light shining thru the curtains is "Wonder". So that's what I named my layout. I adore how it turned out!
I used the sketch from Once Upon a Sketch. The challenge: Our favorite month. How can you not pick December?  Fun-family-friends!!
 I used my G45 Christmas paper and a few chipboard pieces.
 I journaled on one of the cards from the collection.  I used picket fence distress paint on all the layers to tone them down.

Here's a closeup of the texture medium on my faux brick.  I had the letters in my stash forever.  I doubled two colors so it would show up.

Thanks for stopping!!
