Whimsical Wednesday

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

Good Morning!

So yesterday was a pretty productive day for me. I took down the Christmas tree, put all the ornaments and decorations away in their boxes, hurled the dried up tree off our second story balcony and propped it up against the dumpster. Thank goodness no one was around to see me do that! LOL

It feels like forever since I played along with a Whimsical Wednesday Challenge! With the holidays and what not, I wasn't able to play last week. But I'm back and rearing to go! This week's artist is Nicky Diedrich and you can check out his sketch on today's WW:DD post.

The Loads of Fun set from There She Goes hasn't left the top of my craft table since the release last week. I am having so much fun with it! When I saw today's sketch, I knew one of the images from this set would be perfect for it. Aren't those undies cute?! Sadly, you will not find those in my underwear drawer! LOL I did *kind of* tweaked the sketch a little. :) Well, I just moved the focal point off center a wee bit and instead of two tabs on either side of the image, I just made a continuous tag that runs across the middle. A sketch is just a guide, right?? ;) LOVE that sentiment! You could it as a segway some kind of hot, juicy gossip, like for instance... I'm now a Senior Trendsetter for There She Goes!! :D

I'm so thrilled (and a little shocked!) to be a part of the Senior team and amongst such a great deal of talent! Thank you Jess for this fantastic opportunity!
