Thank you Dawn for a sketch challenge on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog this week. I always love a sketch, because it's one less decision I have to make. My comfort zone is just a little bit more comfortable with not having to make that decision.
For my image this week, I had to use this image from the NEW and IMPROVED Sassy Cheryl's Stamps called Just Be Yourself. I've colored her with my Prismacolor and Faber-Castell pencils.
When I saw this image, I immediately flashed back to first grade pictures of my younger daughter. She was 7 years old when I married her father, so I had absolutely no part in the ensembles she had on for both her school picture or her class picture. Needless to say, my husband must have been totally unaware that pictures were being made, because in her school picture she had on her Bert and Ernie t-shirt that had seen better days, and in her class picture, she had on gathered floral skirt with non-matching striped knee socks. She was definitely being herself, and she's still very much herself. She is also a good enough mother to let her 6 year old be himself. After all, in the greater scheme of things, fifty years from now, will it matter that she wore floral skirts with striped socks. I think not. In fact, I think it will be good for a laugh. I will add that in all subsequent school and class pictures, she matched.LOL
You know that I of course used digital papers and designed the card in Cameo. After all, that is me just being me. The papers are from Shery K Designs Lalaloobsy Kit. The sentiment was typed in Silhouette, and just what I thought she might be thinking.
Thanks again Dawn for another great sketch challenge. I had a great time making this card, especially as I had Cec here crafting with me this week.
