Sketchy Thursdays

Hello! Sorry it's a bit dusty around here :). I've been busy, but busy in a good way.  Here's a quick recap of the past several days:

* Met my Brazilian scrapbooking friend, Fabi in person on Saturday! I took her to the largest scrapbooking store in Northern California (my LSS, Green Tangerines) and to her first baseball game (go Rivercats!).

* Said goodbye to my two youngest sisters, Elizabeth and Caitlin.  They are off to school in Utah and grown-up adventures. They've been gone a little over 24 hours and I miss them terribly :(.

* Remember Jaxon's tooth? I accidentally knocked it out of his little mouth with my thumb during a mommy-toddler wrestling match.  He's fine, not traumatized, and I don't have to take him to the oral surgeon now :). Prayers get answered in mysterious ways, don't they?

* Organized a really fun event for the blog and Precocious Paper in August - more on that later ;).

I did have time to play at Sketchy Thursdays:

I love this multi-photo sketch and will have to play with it again:

The prize this week is from October Afternoon! If you haven't been to the ST blog yet today, head over there now for all the fabulous details.

I hope your week has been a good one.  Thanks for stopping by! Tessa
