Summers in Canada are short! As such, we Canadians pack as much as we can into two or three months, making them very busy! That explains why I am sharing my July sketch in August! Enough said! July’s sketch was a simple grid, easy to work with. There really is so much you can do with this type of sketch, it’s a jumping board to creative fun! I chose to offset my grid and use three pictures! I was pleased with the end results. My four-legged Bella is often a willing subject for scrapbook pages, not so much for laying on the ground while camping! This layout came easily together using the Simple Stories – Life Documented collection And I stuck everything down using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L This sketch designed by Sue Sykes, was her last for us in the Sketchy Challenges.

Finding “Your” Happy Place – by Cathie Allan A few weeks ago I posted a few photos on Instagram showing a project that I was working on. I had some “brand new” stencils and stamps from Magenta and I just could not wait to dive into a project. Not knowing what it should be … “Que sera sera” (if you don’t remember this song, you are younger than me, lol), I simply began playing in my art journal book.
