Dream Big .. A Four in One!


Hello Everyone! Happy Saturday and Happy April! I am so happy April has finally arrived for so many reasons, one of which, my husband will be home from Iraq in about 4 weeks!

Third, is the sketch challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, and finally, The Pink Elephant's color challenge to use pastel colors.  Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today! I really appreciate your visit!
