Hi everyone!

 We got home last friday evening from a little get away to Point Clear, Alabama!
Fun, fun trip! Lots of sightseeing, eating and good friends!

This is the view we had looking out our room window.


Took me a few days to get back into the groove!

This is for today's Sketch challenge! Thanks, Roxie!


The image is from Our Daily Bread design's Sing to the Lord and the sentiment is from the newly released set As You Graduate! The image was colored using Copics and  Prisma Colored pencils with OMS. The small background panels were cuttlebugged using C/B folder! Zva Pearls were added to the background! The D/P is by Memory Box!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a marvelous evening!
