once upon a sketch...may

played along this month (finally) and the theme was numbers.
i had printed out a few photos on the weekend prior to this challenge coming out to be organised for the challenges this month. 
and when this challenge came out i knew exactly which photo i was going to use. 
now this isnt the original photo but i have cut the corners on it to make it look a little older and i have lots of distressing on the page to make it fit with the age of the photo. 
so im the middle aged girl. 
and the numbers are the year the photo was taken.
i have only the one photo but made a pocket with tags in them with a note to each of the other children ( my siblings)

here is the sketch 
and here is my page
thanks for looking
