Let's Get Sketchy November Week 4

Happy Monday! Ok maybe not so happy for me. Remember how thrilled I was that we were having temperatures in the 80s...well my wish did NOT come true. The fabulous weather did not stay...in fact it's like winter here. Below freezing with sleet...and they're even predicting possible snow. SNOW?? I haven't seen the cursed stuff in 10 years. Oh I want to go back to California...

And to make matters worse...Santiago is off school all week. Don't get me wrong...I enjoy spending time with him. But we're talking about being cooped up in the house all day because it's too cold to play outside. I am so not used to this. First we spent most of the summer indoors because of the extreme heat...and now the cold. I really really want to go home...

Well enough of my pity party...on to actual fun stuff like scrapbooking. Maybe you live somewhere cold too and will have time indoors this week to spend getting some done. If so, here's another sketch from Let's Get Sketchy to inspire you.

And my take on it...
I thought it appropriate to scrap some Thanksgiving photos since here in the States we will be celebrating later this week. These are from 2008 when my mother & father-in-law came out to visit us...Santiago was just 7 months old. I used the same produce as I did with my Thanksgiving Dinner layout posted last week....mostly older stuff like KI Memories Grateful & SEI Poppy, but a tad bit of newer Studio Calico Sundrifter. Oh and I actually got out my Sizzix Sidekick to do the title. I'm embarrassed to say it's been years since I used that thing. Anyhow, thanks for looking and have a wonderful week.
