The Great Outdoors - 3.10 Sketch

What a fun double-page layout from Sketchy Thursdays this week.  Normally I struggle with my two-page layouts, but having a sketch really helps.  I loved that the sketch had space for two large photos, which worked great for these pictures of our son playing at Jackson's Oak.  I didn't have any wood-grain paper, so I used an old, soft baby brush and acrylic paint to achieve the effect on kraft paper.
