Let's Get Sketchy!

When my friend Alison made it on a new Design Team, of course I had to check out the site and challenges!  The site is "Let's Get Sketchy!", and here's the page I made for this week's sketch:

I used new papers and stickers from Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic line.  I couldn't decide on just a few papers from this line, so I bought the whole collection pack, which I very rarely do, and I LOVE it!  It's definitely my new go-to collection!  The hardest thing about this page was figuring out which papers to use - they all looked awesome with these photos.  Anyway, I'm quite pleased with the end result.  Here's the sketch this week:

I switched it up a bit, but it made putting this page together pretty easy.  And here's a close up of the journaling:
And some of the fussy cut balloons:
Oh, and if you're wondering why Ailis is wearing clothes to the spray park, it's because her bathing suit disappeared in the move (along with my camera battery chargers and Close to My Heart Inks, not to mention my box of photos, grrrrr!) Thanks for looking!  Now I better get this posted and linked before I miss the deadline!!!

P.S. I'm also entering this page over at ScrapFIT for Warm-up #31 - the challenge is to use patterned paper for you background, fun fun!



  1. Awesome job on your take of the sketch! I love your pp's and embellishments from the EP line! Your layout is great! Thanks for playing along with us at Let's Get Sketchy!

  2. Love the papers you used! Super cute LO! Great take on the sketch, thanks for playing along with us at LGS!

  3. I love this page! Awesome collection - I love echo park! Thanks for joining us at LGS :-)

  4. I like the way you stacked the photos, and those hot air balloons are adorable! Thanks for the book suggestions on my blog - Janet Evanovich has been on my to-read list for a while!

  5. I love how you have mixed colors and patterns - it looks great with the photos. And it looks like a lot of fun in that spray park!! :)
    Thank you for playing along with us at LGS.

  6. Great job! Looking at it the end of summer makes me a bit sad, but for you it is likely a good memory. Moving is never easy, especially with children - seems you are making it a positive experience though so good luck! And good luck finding the rest of your stuff!!

  7. Fabulous layout Roxy!!! Such lovely papers, love the balloons.

    I do hope that Ailis is beginning to settle in your new home/town, and that goes for the rest of you too of course :) What a lovely moment it will be when you discover your missing bits in a random box!!!

    Sorry I haven't been around to comment recently, life has been a little bit busy ;)

    Big hugs, Carole xxx

  10. Fabulous page Rox!!! Gotta love Echo Park!! They make it so easy (: I really like how you cut out the balloons!!! They add so much dimension. You've got some tough kids!!! Being able to adjust and settle in to the new. I hope you find all of your lost goodies!!!

  11. How did I miss this layout?! First off, thanks for playing along with us at Let's Get Sketchy! It's so fun to be on their design team and it's awesome to see familiar faces participating!!
    When I popped over to your site it was your card I wanted to see 'cus I recognized the papers. I think I bought the entire collection too!! I haven't had the courage to cut into that cloud pattern yet - it's so beautiful!! But I need to use it soon or else it may become one of those "too gorgeous to use so it sits in my stash forever" papers!! You have inspired me to use it tho so thank you!
    Oh, and before I forget - those balloons!! So awesome!!

    Hope you find everything soon!
