My happy place...

Good morning!

It's been a few weeks but I finally made time to re-join the fun and play along in the current sketch challenge over on the MFT challenge blog. I've actually had this cute Spring Friends Pure Innocence stamped up for over a year so when I saw the sketch I knew she would work. I love how my friend Tracey adds bangs to these PI cuties so I did the same once I got to coloring and I am so happy with how she looks! At first I was a bit lost on what kind of scene to put her in but I guess I was inspired by the gorgeous day we had yesterday and the view of the lake with the forest beyond that I was enjoying. So I just grabbed my markers and started winging it. It was a bit nerve wracking at first but once it all started coming together I was glad I had tackled that challenge. And since I do feel blessed to live in such a beautiful area, and it truly is my happy place, the sentiment was kind of a no brainer, LOL!  ;)
