Once Upon A Dream

Dear all,

I have been in love with the mood board from Scrap Around The World since the theme is "Fairy Tales". Here's the moodboard below....
To be honest, I don't like reading at all... I don't know why but I guess books weren't really my best interest. But every things about Fairy Tales, I've read them all I supposed. I love them all. Hans Christian Anderson, Brothers Grimms, Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty... (should I continue, I wouldn't finish discussing about them all, lol)
I thought since my little one turns two tomorrow, would love to make this one really special. Until now, both of us (me and my husband) still could not believe that we have an 'almost' (a few hours now) two years old daughter. She is our dream come true. 
So I thought this layout was like a dream coming out of my mind.
Anyway, here's my layout for that..
The dark space was taken from the idea of Alice in Wonderland when she fell of the hole. So it's supposed like going into an outer space like feeling. A bit of yellow, blue, red and green mix feeling kinda thing. The white area was supposed to be the reality, my reality.

Because I took Alice in wonderland as an idea, I thought gears and filigree would be the perfect combination to match my little one "Charlene" as she turned to be the little butterfly in the middle of my layout. In Alice's book and movies, there was a caterpillar which at the end become a beautiful butterfly. I thought I used this idea because of the background would match perfectly with the wings. So I colored it a bit of Bubble Gum and Crushed Grape from Dylusions Ink Sprays.
In the end I decided to use "Once Upon A Dream" instead of "A Time" to match the idea itself that the layout was my interpretation of my dreams against Alice's.

I joined the challenge from Berry71Bleu with the theme "Things We Love" ...
and the sketch from Let's Get Sketchy with the sketch below
