November 1st Challenge

November is here! Whew! If you work at a school like me, you know that Nov. 1st is one of those days where the powers that be should just cancel school. Wrangling kiddos is extra tricky on the day after Halloween! 24 hours later and the sugar high still remains! Hah!

Alright enough about school, let's get to our Let's Get Sketchy challenge for the month:


Here's my take: 


To be honest, I really struggled with this sketch because I was battling the size of my photos the whole time. Do you ever have pages like that? Pages that seem to take more effort? This was one of those for me! Thankfully, I'm finally happy with the finished product.

Have a wonderful November and I hope you join us at Let's Get Sketchy!

October 15th Sketch Challenge

Here's our fun mid-way through the month challenge at Let's Get Sketchy!  
Take a look and then play along with us if you can! :)


Here's my take:


I actually turned my sketch into a fun two-page layout, since I have so many photos that need to get scrapbooked! Here's how my two-pager turned out:

Guest Design at Stick It Down!

Hey again everyone! 
I have the privilege of being a Guest Designer at Stick It Down this month!! 

Here is their fun two-page sketch for October:


Here's my take on the sketch:




If you can't tell I really like using two-page sketches (plus I have LOTS of photos to scrap!) Thankfully, I was able to use this sketch to document some of the awesome cuisine that we enjoyed in Iceland this summer. As always, thanks so much for swinging by my blog!

October 1st Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone and welcome to October! Don't you just love fall?! I'm truly enjoying the cooler temperatures and the beautiful colors all around! 

Time for our new sketch this month from Let's Get Sketchy!


I LOVED this sketch because I immediately thought I could use the triangles to model the mountains and waterfalls that my husband and I saw when visiting Iceland in July. Take a look:


Thanks so much for joining me today!

September 15th Challenge

Whew! Are you surviving September? I feel like this month is always a whirlwind because here in Minnesota school starts! It's always great to jump into fall though right? Bring on the pumpkin spice flavored EVERYTHING! :)

Here's the sketch (for the second half of this month) from Let's Get Sketchy


Here's my take on it! My mom, grandma and cousin and I had a great time a Christmas tea this past December. I truly do cherish these sweet moments with my family!

August 15th Sketch

It's time for our middle of the month sketch challenge from Let's Get Sketchy! I turned the sketch into a two-page layout to get some other pictures scrapped from last summer! Anyone else out there a little behind?! ;)

Here's the sketch:



I chose to scrap some pictures from a road trip that my husband and I took last summer. Because I'm a history nut, I picked out a few historical sites that I wanted to see. We stopped at Mammoth Cave, Lincoln's Boyhood Home in Indiana, Lincoln's home and grave in Springfield Illinois. And finally Herbert Hoover's Home in West Branch, Iowa. Yep...a history lovers tour! 

Here's my take:




Hope you like it and I hope that you join our challenge this month! Thanks for swinging by!
