Sassy Ann has set the challenge over on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog this week for New Beginnings. The DT did a fabulous job with their creations, so it was a challenge for me to come not to copy something they had done. It's a great challenge after all since this is the beginning of a brand new year. Sometimes I think the older we get the harder it is to see the NEW in things. All it takes is to watch the world through the eyes of a child. Seeing their eyes light up at something as simple as a butterfly in flight or a bubble drifting in the breeze, makes even the most hardened of individuals take a new perspective on the joy in the simple fact that we're alive and one of God's Glorious Creations.
With that in mind, I chose this sweet image called Nature Lover from the Sassy Cheryls Digi Store. I know that my grandson MonkeyMoo thinks it's pretty cool to investigate nature, and with a magnifying glass you get a whole different view of the world. She's colored with Copics. I can tell it's been awhile since I colored, as I struggled with the coloring of this one.
The papers are from my scrap box. I really am trying to get rid of some of the scraps. The sentiment was whipped up in Photoshop, but could just have easily been done in Word. I'm posting it at the bottom in case any one would like to grab it. Just right click on it and save it.
Thanks for stopping by. I better hurry if I want to beat the deadline for entries.
