Remember this..
The photo is when my DD had really long hair before she got it cut short to send away to make it into wigs..

And the August challenge for SKETCHY BOARDS is one I really enjoyed creating for..

The Board..

some closer views..

This moment..
I have been inspired by the sketch and by the purple color...

Well I hope your month is off to a good start..

Sadly I cannot say the same.. I said goodbye to my faithful little doggie Lucy today after she died last night.. She would have turned 14 next week.. She was like my shadow, always by my side.. I miss her already...  It has been a shock even though she had not been well this last week, she always recovered.. but not this time..  Just last sunday she was in photos with my daughter.. and I will end this blog post with a photo..

Thanks so much for your lovely comments they do mean so much to me...
