Welcome to my little corner in the blogoshere (real word right?!) where I have settled in to share this crazy habit of mine that keeps me happy!

Bring on the SUNSHINE!!!!
The weather pattern for the Pacific Northwest has been extra cool & wet this year. Finally, FINALLY the sun is shining thru. Saturday was GORGEOUS, Sunday & Monday were cloudy w/ showers, but the sun is back again today. Woo Hoo! It sure does help ease the stress of trying to get the 16yr old "angel" (HA!) finished up with school this week.
I just love this image from The Stamping Boutique. It's called "Summer Laundry Line". The sentiment is from a sight I found while hopping around one day Create with TLC. There are some super fun freebies there as well as a link to her online store with more sentiments & some fun images. I colored the image w/ my Bic markers, used CTMH ink & a blender pen to add in the water in the background, then used chalk inks to fill in the sky & the sand. Finally I added Glossy accent to the water & the lenses of the sunglasses. The DP is from DCWV Glitter Stack. I used the sketch from The Sweetest Thing/Sweet Sunday Sketch #120 as my starting point. I altered it just a bit, just to get everything to look right in my eye.
Now the count down is on for lunch time to roll around & for me to get a chance to go enjoy the beautiful afternoon calling to me from outside my window. (that's the WORST part about having a desk w/ a window right beside it...)
