Dreaming in Technicolor...

to view an image up-close, please click on the photo

Aaah, it's another Monday and the last week just flew by! With all our icky weather here in New York, I was really pining for some California sunshine. So, I thought I'd use this week's 2 Sketches 4 You sketch from the super sweet Kazan to warm up my day. I went with this very cute surfing Cuppie from the Beach Bum set from Taylored Expressions. But, to really get to the sunny side of the ocean, I used some very bright, and very colorful patterned paper. Now, where did I put my surfboard?
Now, head on over to 2S4Y... Laura and Kazan have announced our newest Design Team member, Laurie Wilson, and I know she'd love to create with you! Also, I hope you join us next week as I try my hand at a sketch with a Bonus Sketch, a very cool sponsor, plus another chance to become a member of the team! So, get your creative mojo flowin' and have a great week!
