Pocket Life Sketch Friday

Happy Friday! It's Tara here for our weekly installment of Pocket Life Friday. I have once again fallen head over heels in love with our August PL Kit, which has sold out, and our super affordable Sprinkles kit. Don't forget to read for details on our weekly giveaway associated with today's sketches at the end of the post.

We went on our first camping trip since moving abroad to England in July and had so much fun! The first layout shows how beautiful the lake was and how much we enjoyed our time in the sunshine!
I added in a Freckled Fawn wood veneer from my stash and my DIY enamel dot to the 4x6 PL card. I loved the Seven Baxter patterned paper from this month's kit so much! I also really love using stamps and used a few that we offered from current and past kits.

This next 6x8 mini layout was taken before I added in the journaling. My son ended up with an unexpected and accidental fat lip on our camping trip. He wanted to see the swelling for himself and how well the medication was working so we provided a few photos for him to see. He loves cats so much and the little wood chip cat had the perfect face for this memory. I used some alphas from past kits to add a pop of color and some hints of the patterned paper. The little pink word sticker was just the perfect touch to make it look like I added a tag or label.

And now time for the sketches.
Here are the 2 3x4 cards and a 4x6 card. I really focused more on the photos this time with a few hints of patterned paper, embellishments, and stamps.

And here is the 6x8 mini layout sketch: 

I hope these sketches can help spark your creativity to get to it this weekend and document those memories!

For your chance to win some happy mail, create a layout based on the sketches in this blog post. Then post your layout to our Gallery or on our Facebook Fan Page by Friday, August 28th and label it PL 8/21. The winner will be announced here on the blog later this month.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
Xxo, Tara
