It's Sketch Time at PaperBlooms!

Hi Everyone! It is time once again for another great challenge at PaperBlooms! Where have these last two weeks gone? For that matter where has this year gone? It seems like my little boy just turned 5, and today, (Sept 23) is his 6th birthday already! {sniff} its a big day here at the Bryant household, Grammy and Bob are here from Washington for a visit and Daddy sent (way too many) birthday presents from Iraq. This is the first year that my husband has missed our son's birthday, which is a pretty amazing when you consider he has been deployed for about 4 years of Connor's 6 years on this earth!

Ok, so I am easily sidetracked ...

Before getting on to the challenge at hand, I want to thank each and every one of you who participated in our last challenge, "Bling it up" ! I was personally inspired by all the awesome creations you all came up with! I love how we can come up with so many different interpretations from one idea! Be sure to check the PaperBlooms blog to see if YOU are the Featured Artist! If not, dont give up, this challenge could be yours to shine with!

For the next two weeks we have this sketch challenge for you to be inspired by:

Nice one, right? There are SO many possibilities with this one! I cant WAIT to see what you all come up with!
