Note To Self... - Challenge Yourself #22

Oh my, am I glad to have school starting this week.  My summer has been a bit insane!  I know, I know, I say this every summer, but this summer, I'm really telling the truth.

On multiple occasions, I've used my house as a laundromat.  Literally, coming home one night, washing what is needed and leaving the next morning.

As I look back at my summer calendar, I left in mid July and for 2 months straight, I've been on the road or at our cabin.  Maybe I should print and actually scrapbook the calendar itself because it truly is a memory!

Anyway, I missed last months Challenge Yourself challenge because I was out of town and just could not get a page done, but we had many great participants!  Great job ladies.

This month's challenge is a sketch.  A sketch with layers, my favorite!

And my take...

On this challenge, I started with my BG.  And to be honest, I changed it 4 times.  I wasn't happy with my choices, maybe because they were too bold.  I settled for this muted wood grain.  Don't ask me what line it is from...  I don't know.  I don't organize my paper by manufacturer.

Don't you just love this vintage typewriter?  It is from Maya Road!  Adorable!
