PPA201 April 24
I  love this sketch which might become one of my go-to sketches.  A sketch is a great way to start when you have trouble coming up with a design for a card or scrapbook page.

This week I was in a first grade classroom making Mother's Day Cards with the kids.  Next month I will be going to a high school to help a group of kids make thank you cards to mail out.  It is so fun for me to see other people express their creativity, both young and old!
