Happy Tuesday to you all!! I hope everyone had a great weekend!!
I am back from camping! We had an excellent time, however, it was an
extremely cold weekend and we now are all sick with horrid head colds.
Unfortunately my girls and I feel achy from head to toe. The highlight of the
weekend was our 3 hour hike at Watkins Glen, NY. The sites were incredible.
I hope at some point to be able to share the pictures with you.

My next highlight was our return home to find out I was the FEATURED
this weekend. I am so excited and thrilled. I felt horrid
last night and did not get around to leaving comments and looking at all the
Cased creations, but I will today!!! Thank for all the compliments and

We had a really good response to last weeks sketch. This Weeks sketch

has some different added elements to it so we hope you will enjoy this one

just as much.

Here is my take on this weeks #23 sketch

(MMSC23) using a Gurlee Girl Image.

I colored the Little witch from Gurlee Girl
with Prisma color pencils and gamsol. The actual project is an open treat box
that I filled with candy corns.
The dp is from SU's Haiku. The spider web is created using felt that I cut
from a spider web applique.

This was a very fun sketch to use. I hope you are inspired to create with it as well.
For Further inspiration, please see the blogs of my dt sisters for their
amazing creations!!
