Sketchy Thursdays 7.28 (a day late)

I am on vacation and thought I had set this up before I left. Nope. And, where we are there is sketchy at best cell and internet coverage. For the last two days there has been nothing all day! And right now I am hoping to get this posted before it goes out again because it is waivering. Hurry!

Anyway, there is a new sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays. The design team did an awesome job with it. Here is the sketch.

And here is my take on it.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you play along!

Sketchy Thursdays 7.21

Another week, another sketch! Yay! I love how my DD#2 is getting into taking pictures. I carry my camera everywhere it seems, and she every now and then will take a couple of pictures of me and dear hubby. I love that I actually have some pictures of the two of us together. And that is what I used for this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch.

We were eating breakfast with my cousin and her family at some cool 24 hour joint on the patio, It was so fun to sit there eating right in the middle of downtown!

Here is this week's sketch that this page is based on...

Well, I hope you are enjoying your summer! Remember to head over to Sketchy Thursday's to play along with us!

7.14 Sketchy Thursdays

I really love everything about this week's sketch at Sketchy Thursdays. I love butterflies. It asks for one photo. The photo is small. It is a simple, clean sketch. I love it! It may be one of my all time favorites! See it...


Here is my take...


This picture is from our trip to Chicago. We were walking distance from Lake Michigan, so we ventured down there, bad weather and all to see it. The sky was dark, the water was FREEZING and the most amazing color. I have never seen a lake so clear before! DD#2 thought it was great too. Before we knew it, she was wet up to her waist and had to walk back to the hotel sandy and cold. Well, all the kiddos ended up this way. I guess it is just an occupational hazard for them. LOL.

Anyway, make sure you head over to Sketchy Thursdays to play along with us! Thanks for stopping by!

Sketchy Thursdays 7.7

It has been storming like crazy here at night! Lightening, thunder, wind, hail. AWFUL! We have had power outages and freaky internet. It has been making for getting on the internet kinda sketchy at night. Luckily, at the crack of dawn, it is calm!

But today is a new sketch from Sketchy Thursdays!! Here is the sketch.

And here is my take on it.

Some close ups...

So my dear hubby was looking at this and asks me, "Don't you scrapbook anyone besides Baby Girl?" I had to explain to him that the other two are going through a not-so-fun phase right now with me and my camera. First born, as soon as she sees a camera anywhere in sight, instantly starts scowling like someone put something gross in her corn flakes. DD#2, on the other hand, seek the camera out and gives me all sorts of freako faces, so pictures of her come out with crazy eyes and vampire teeth. Baby Girl has her Forrest Gump thing where she either has her eyes closed or looking away in most pictures, but I have been dealing with that for almost 5 years now, so I am equipped to deal with it. So yes, most pages right now, are her. Hopefully, the other ones will grow out of their camera weirdness soon.

Have a great day! And make sure you get your pages linked up to Sketchy Thursdays for the chance at the prize. Thanks for stopping by!
