Let's Get Sketchy July Week 2

Happy Monday everyone! The kids and I drove up to Des Moines with my mom this past week (for 4th of July) and we just got back to Texas this past Saturday night (and didn't get back to our house until late Sunday morning). We were out there to visit my mom's side of the family, which was fun but...it certainly  feels good to be back home and sleeping in my own bed again. And I am pretty worn out from all the driving...which was murder on my back condition. But we all survived and here we are back to our routine.

And back to another challenge at Let's Get Sketchy. Here is this week's sketch...

And my take on it...

The photos have glare yet again...and I finally figured out why. The last batch of photos I ordered were all glossy finish and I usually get matte. Grrr...well at least I know not to order glossy in the future!

I wish I could have been braver and cut a single photo in half. But I just couldn't bring myself to do it! Most of the other girls on Team B were way braver than me...you should go and check out their takes on the sketch!


  1. I'm not brave either :) I really like how you used that border from the on trend paper, I have such a hard time with that pattern. Your page looks great!

  2. Love all the elements you used this is really cute!!!!

  3. Fab page, love the distressing and spatters!

  4. I like all your distressed edges and the buttons are cute little embellishments!

  5. I love that background paper and great distressing on your edges! Such sweet photos too!

  6. Super cute layout Jenessa. Too bad about all the glossy photos but I love the distressing you added to them.
