Growing up is optional!

Hello! I made it back from my work trip and I am happy to see that my scheduled post worked and many of you fabulous followers even left me comments! What a nice thing to come home to! Thank you!

So, I must admit, I was having some withdrawl while I was away!! Over the holidays, especially since Christmas, I've been posting and visiting lots more than I had been able to do in a long time. So, when I had to hit the road for work and realized I would be cut off for two whole days, I was rather deflated! I carry a laptop everywhere I go when on the road and can often get internet access, but looking at blogs would not exactly be considered "work related"! So, can you imagine my frustration when my good friend Danderella rang me up at work on the day I was leaving and told me I had been chosen as one of the top 3 over at KLSNS for last week's challenge!?! I couldn't even go and check it out until tonight! (though I am still happy she told me!) I am so excited and honored to be chosen and soon I will be able to proudly display a special blinkie on my sidebar!

Today I am sharing my interpretation of the sketch over at Get Sketchy. I must admit that I found this a little difficult. Once I had the curvy piece cut out, I couldn't figure out what to do with the empty space, so I added some stitching - not so sure I love it, but it did help a little. I did enjoy working with these fun colors again though.
Once again, I apologize for my photography. I continue to experiment, but nothing compares to natural light! I also thought I'd try photographing the copics I used while I was at it, though they are hard to see in the photo, you can click to enlarge if you like.

I had some fun finishing the inside of this one too. I just love this sentiment!
Hope you are having a great week! Mine is going well, but I am pretty tired from my trip - we tend to work overtime while on the road, so I'm looking forward to the weekend very much!
Take care,
Shanna :)
