Got Sketch? 105 Class Sketch #1...Mad Face

O.k., so we are in week 3 and Valerie Salmon just posted Sketch 7....I just wrapped up Sketch #2!!!  I've enjoyed the class, but life and work keep interfering.  I'm suffering from a loss of creativity and when I finally find time to myself, I end up just going to bed instead.  So sad!

Valerie asked that we don't share the actual sketch that she provided to those of us that subscribed to her class, but she does allow us to share our work.  If you like what you see, its not too late to join the Got Sketch? 105 Class.  We have one week left still, but the virtual classroom itself will be available until April 30th!  I love her sketches and look forward to completing all 8 (hopefully, by the end of April!!!).

My husband was shocked to see I had taken pictures of my son while he was crying.  But, he was so cute when he was mad!!!  He has a pouty lip thing that he has done since he was even smaller than this and continues to do to this day, that almost makes me look forward to a temper tantrum...almost!  I'm not sure I love the hearts, I had to cut them by hand, but it was really fun to try something different.

Paper:  Let's Get Together (retired)
Cardstock: Colonial White, Outdoor Denim, and Cranberry
Ink: Breeze (retired), Outdoor Denim, and Cranberry
Stamps: Small Chocolate Alpha
Other:  Martha Stewart heart punch, Basic Grey Brads Lime Rickey collection, Zig pen, and felt from Michael's

Hope you are all enjoying the start to your week...we're in the midst of white-out conditions here and I'm checking in on the Iditarod mushers as frequently as possible!!  The official start to the race was yesterday and I think we're all looking forward to seeing if Lance Mackey can become a 4-time consecutive winner.  I'm not sure that anyone has ever done that, although, I do know that with a fourth win, he will be in the same league as the greats like Susan Butcher, Martin Buser, Doug Swingley and Jeff King (Jeff has a record 5 wins under his belt).  Probably not well known names to Lower 48ers, but superstars in Alaska!  If you haven't paid any attention, you should check out some of the stories coming out of this race.  There are some amazingly inspirational people on the trail this my opinion, these competitors are what real athletes are truly all about.  Of course, the dogs deserve most of the credit! ;O)
