Once Upon A...Sketch - October Challenge

It's the middle of the month, which means it's time for our reveal over at ONCE UPON A...SKETCH.
This month's challenge is one I think most peeps will be able to relate to:
Journalling Theme:
"The women/girls etc in our lives"
You are free to interpret our theme ANY WAY you like. It is for your inspiration and this theme word DOES NOT need to be part of your title or journalling. But please make sure your layout is based on the sketch below and includes journalling (hidden journalling is fine). Acceptable journalling is MORE than just a sentence, or generic writing such as date/place etc. It needs to be present and at least 3 lines long. Remember, hidden journalling (under a photo/tag or behind your page) is perfectly fine but please DO let us know in your post where your journalling is! 
Here's what I created. My Mum stars!!!
Gold heat embossing also stars - no surprise there, right??!!!
 And my 3rd Eye fave mask of the moment also stars!!!!
 That little bit of purple coloured card? Dusty Attic packaging!!! LOTS of SODAlicious pp, too...
 Oh, I dooooo like a bit 'o' flair, too:):) And below is my journaling....felt like doing 'messy writing' for a change!!!
And here's my page:
I do hope you will join us at ONCE UPON A...SKETCH this month:)
