PL Sketch Friday with Tara

Happy Friday! It's Tara and I'm back for this week's Pocket Life Sketch Friday challenge. Don't forget to read through the end to see how you can win some happy mail.

My challenge this week is to add in as much journaling as you can - even if it's just a word or two, a lengthy paragraph, or in a list format with bullets. You can even use word stickers, alphas, cut apart words, and phrases to help with the journaling too.

Here is my finished spread:

Here is the left side and my introduction for August:

Here is the right side:

I cannot get enough of all the pretty papers, the 4x6 card with cut apart words, and The Reset Girl's ephemera kit in this month's "Maggie" Pocket Life kit (we are sold out of this month's kit but you can start a subscription with October's PL kit). I really pushed myself to use use up all of the lovely contents of the kit this month instead of keeping it all for a rainy day.

Here are a few close ups:

I didn't take any photos from our Vacation Bible School event, so I printed out the image of the theme we used. It fit perfectly with the pops of colors in my spread.

I added in a short phrase depicting Elliot and his silliness. Something that simple can really capture the moment!

I couldn't get enough of the Maggie Holmes gold stickers in this month's Embellishment Kit.

I also thought listing what's happened this week instead of writing an in depth review would be a fun
change. I added in "this"/"that" from the stamp included and used my Kelley Purkey alpha stamps for the "AND".

I even found another way to add more journaling! I love hidden journaling if I want to keep some things private. This time I used the cute ephemera as an extra layer and made it interactive too.

Another label sticker below helped me do a quick explanation of the spaghetti noodle.

Finally, here are your sketches:
