Catching up on 2 Sketches 4 U!

I LOVE this little sketch blog, but the busyness of the two weeks hasn't allowed me to participate! So, I got the three sketches that I missed done over the past couple of evenings and am ready to share them! First up, this is my card for the current sketch, Kazan's Sketch 7. It also features some new Scenic Route papers called Appleton.

It is nice to get back into my scrappy groove! I have felt a bit out of sorts the past couple of weeks....but am now ready to get back full force! I have some really cute layouts sketched out that I will actually be posting online (gasp), so be sure to check back for those!

And who else is excited for FOOTBALL SEASON to begin! I am ready for high school football and college football to begin! I don't mind NFL, but it isn't my favorite. You can bet though...any time there is football on TV that it is on at our house! Josh is a big football nut, and will talk to his dad all day long on Saturdays about the games going on. It is really my favorite time of year. Cooler temperatures that are still bearable, the excitement of football, the changing colors, searching for that perfect pumpkin...and all of this leading into the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. I love fall...and I am ready for it!

My little brother is gearing up for another great season of football as well! He will be a junior this year, and starting at quarterback. Since it is small town, 8-man football...he is also the kicker, defensive end (I think that is what it is called) and a blocker once the ball leaves his hands as QB. It is so fun to watch, and he LOVES it. This is their first week of practice (they did have a football camp a few weeks ago as well), and it sounds like they are looking HOT. Their first game of the season is a rematch of the state championship game last year!! They lost that one...but I have a feeling times are starting to change in Class C football in Montana. I think it may just be the year of the Panther. Oh yes...there is a change drifting in the crisp Montana air...a big change! Go purple!

We travel to EVERY game, no matter where it is. And I have a super sexy sports lens to shoot photos with this year....YES! So excited to use it! Only sixteen more days until the craziness begins...and I love it!
