A Date with Sketchy Thursdays

It's been a whirlwind weekend--a shiva call, visiting with my grandparents, meeting an old friend, Target (we were WAY overdue for a visit--oh Target, how I missed thee.....), and the new Harry Potter movie.

This movie is SAD. As in, I was weeping hysterically. S looked over at me at one point and saw tears streaming down my cheeks. Took me the rest of the night to recover! It had a lot of interesting overtones to World War II, and I left thinking about my grandparents and wondering, yet again, how they survived what they went through. I look forward to the next installment being a big happier, though.

On to scrappy matters--Sketchy Thursdays has a new sketch up, and you have until this Wednesday to play! Let me know if you do and I'll look out for your layout!

Here is the sketch for the week:

And here's my take on it:


As you can see, I went with a two pager this time! Ella's new ebook has been inspiring me!

Excuse the awful photo though--what is it with two pagers and yucky photos? If anyone has any tips for getting a good two pager photo, please share!

And, I get to pick a lucky Ella winner! It's DEBORAH! Deborah, please email me at keshet.shenkar@gmail.com and I'll get you your book code!

Otherwise, I'm looking forward to spending the day sorting out my life. Between all the traveling and some sad feeling about the baby topic yesterday, I am sitting in a sea of post-its and a to do list to kingdom come. Wish me luck!

What are YOUR plans for the day?

  5. Great two-pager!

    We're still waiting to see the third Harry Potter (hehe). I can relate to your feelings though- sad movies stay with me for a long time. Then I tell my husband- let's watch somthing funny before we go to bed! Because I just can't go to sleep thinking sad thoughts.

    What brave, special people your grandparents must be. May history such as that never ever be repeated.

  6. Beautiful layout!!
    No advice on taking photos for them-that's my major downfall!

  7. Love your layout. I am a 2 page girl. I usually take a photo of each page then of them both side by side.
    I did see this movie and thought the same thing.

  18. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any
    widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping
    maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look
    forward to your new updates.
