6/23 Sketchy Thursdays reveal!

I can't believe it is June 23.  Where is the time going????

I am lovin' the new Watermelon Gazpacho line from Jillibean Soup, so it was appropriate that I had some watermelon photos to go with these papers!  :)  (Or did I have the papers first and have to get some watermelon and then take photos???  What do you think?   :)   )

Here is this week's sketch at Sketchy Thursdays:

I added some paper behind the photos and just used the title on the journaling card for my page.

On the borders on the top and bottom, I back the punched holes with black CS to make "seeds".  I also punched some hearts from black CS and cut them in half to make the seeds that scatter across my page.  I added glossy accents to them to make them shine!

(Although when i was doing this, I realized I couldn't remember the last time that I actually had a watermelon with seeds in it!!!!!  Do they all come seedless now?)

I love this page so much, that we will be making it in my July class at Scappn' Savvy!

Other thoughts: I am convinced that there is something wrong with my camera.  I keep getting an Error code every now and then, and my pics just don't seem to be as clear as they used to be!  I am thinking about investing in a new one....that is if hubby will let me!  :)
