sketchy me

The latest sketch is ready at Sketchy Thursdays! Personally, I am loving this sketch and think I may do another page this week just for the fun of it. (A page that isn't about me!)

Here's my sample page. It is also an entry for The Studio's Oct. 16 Challenge. Check out the details here. The entry had to have new patterned paper, old patterned paper and be about yourself.

I have to tell you a little story. When I planned out this page, I fully intended to also use the prompt Phenomenal Woman over at Scrap That Poetry... and then I just couldn't do it! On one hand, the word 'phenomenal' is huge for the letters I wanted to use. And on the other hand, I felt incredibly embarrassed showcasing that kind of praise for myself on a page. Silly, huh?!

So, here is my weak, and not really great, attempt at also doing that challenge. I wanted to mention it though, because if you can manage to make it rock (like some of the ladies over there have), then try it out!


Don't forget to play along at Sketchy Thursdays this week. Our friend Amber over at Scrapbook Kit Club has the November kit sneak up for a peek and is giving one away to this week's winner. It could be you... but you have to play to win!


Supplies: Maya Mist (blue), Hambly (pp), Dream Street (pp), Evalicious, Prima (bling and bubble), Pink Pasilee (chipboard) and Creative Chaos (journal spot)

First of all, don't be silly!! You are a phenomenal woman, and you should think of yourself in that way. In fact, not even mentioning that you are probably a great mom, you do more in one day than I do in a week!!! So brag about yourself a little....everybody does it LOL. I love that sketch and must get over there to play. So sorry I haven't played lately, but with all that was going on with Lucas I just couldn't find the energy to do much else!! So glad everything turned out fine with him and thanks for your sweet comments! Love, Jess
