I finished the final pages that I made last week without computer this past weekend. Here's the last three:

This is the page I worried Derick might divorce me over. When he actually saw the finished page, he seemed over it, so maybe no divorce, but he sure subjected me to serious eye rolling.

I used zig-zag stitches for sleepy ZZZZZ...

This is my August page for Project 12. I got inspiration from the sketch for content as well as design:

The trees made me think of summer, and all the tree things we did this past month. I used some Maya Road chipboard trees I've had for a while, plus some new Maya Road felt trees I got with my returned Scrapbook Trends pages from June's mag. Thank you, Maya Road!

This page is Rowan's swim page. He didn't pass Level 3, his first time not passing, but he did get to swim in the deep end, so momentous nonetheless. I'm going to write about the journaling tomorrow. I used some Fancy Pants summer again, plus Pink Paislee.

The stamped wave was fun to make. I used a Fancy Pants stamp from Summer Soiree, plus some Claudine Hellmuth paints, teal and blue. I painted the stamp in sky blue with a sponge brush, then used a stuff bristle brush to paint over it with teal. I tried to "go with the flow" of the wave pattern, since the stiff brush took some paint off. The stamped image looks wicked cool, though.

I started some back to school pages too. More this week...

Hi Jennifer,
We are in Karen's Book of Stories class at BPS and I clicked over from there. I don't know why I have never visited your blog before, I always love to see what you've posted at the Flickr gallery. You've inspired me to try out some sketches for ideas when I am in a to Sketchy Thursday's now!
