Snapchats ;)


Good Morning! Well, I always seem to say 'Good Morning' because that's when I post! I probably should say 'Good Day' because we all BlogHop during the time we can...enough of my carrying on already...no matter what time of day it is there for you I'm still so glad you dropped by for today's Scrapbook Challenges Sketch #345 !!!

It's been several weeks now that my DD, Marissa, has returned from her adventures in Thailand! She experienced some amazing things, some of which were captured in photos...but I had just the snapshots she sent me through Snapchat as my main source of communication for the two weeks she was away!

It was a bit scary for me to send her off on this trip as it was the first trip she's taken without her parents...travelling to Thailand meant many hours of little to no communication home, which was stressful for me!


Now I'm not sure if you are familiar with 'Snapchat' but it's an APP the kids use on their iPhones and Androids to send photos like they do text messages...they can add a little bit of journaling or do some drawing on their photos and then send them off like a text message...needless to say, I certainly did look forward to getting Snapchats as they were easier for Marissa to send to me than it was for her to phone me...for some reason her text feature wasn't working there and she isn't a regular Facebook user anymore.


Even though the picture quality isn't great, I LOVE these photos, they illustrate Marissa's silly personality very well and this sketch was perfect for these 3x4 photos...I even used my Basic Grey Marrakech papers! I've been holding onto those for years now ;)

This layout came together super fast, especially seeing as I used the sticker sheet and only a couple of pieces of patterned papers!

Make sure you pop over to the Scrapbook Challenges Blog to see some more inspiration from our Design Team with this week's sketch...thanks for stoppin' by!
