Sketchy Thursdays.....I am trying something new!!!

Sketchy Thursdays is a sketch challenge blog that I have just discovered and I am so excited to be able to participate in a challenge finally...Diana is the one who puts it all together and she is so super talented. I love her style and creations. { Edited.... So sorry but just wanted you to know this weeks sketch is by Heidi... I am sure she will be inspiring you with her talents... I gotta give credit where credit is due..LOL...} I did not think I would like sketches but they make scrapping a whole lot easier..... The design layout is right in front of you.... just choose your paper and a few embellishments and off you go. I finished these 2 layouts last night in less than an hour....

Jesse, my 6 year old dubbed last night "we love momma night"! My hubby cleaned the boys room, did laundry, cleaned up the kitchen and unloaded chairs out of my car ( I took all my stuff out of storage and now it is in my shed!) Because they did all of that I was able to get some much needed creative time in. Tonight he has dubbed,"we love daddy night"! I do not know if I can top what they did for me. Jasin has had a long week, he needs rest. I will keep it quiet so he can do that.

So here are the sketches and what I created. Try them will be surprised how awesome it is!!!

This is the current sketch and must be linked to the Sketchy Thursdays blog by 10pm on Wednesday...7-28

This is my Brother in law John. We were on the 4th of July fireworks cruise in New York City. I think he is so handsome and he sure has grown into a mature young man. He is sure made to be a New Yorker. We had a blast.

This Sketch is for a Guest Designer Spot for August. Thought I would give it a try.... You had to use the sketch and incorporate yellow and a handmade embellishment with your design...So much fun.

My handmade embellishment is my ribbon ruffle and my paper flower.

This is my husband and his brother.. We only see John around Christmas so it was nice to visit him....The 2 of them in a photo together is a rare occasion. I love these pictures. We were bike riding in Central Park.

SO I hope you give the challenges a try. If you have never tried a sketch keep checking back at the Sketchy Thursdays blog cause they have a new one each week!!!!!
