Diva Coffee Break Designs 223-Sketch Challenge

Hola Amigas. It's Diva Time! So how are you doing? I can't believe this weather. One day it's sweltering hot (my kind of weather) and then its freezing again...Today and yesterday it's been raining...Well many asked about my first meet and greet with Dawn Raspas. I am a Designer for her so I was getting some goodies for our next session. I also spoke to her about this weekend. I am going to her Shoebox Swap A Thon in Mahwah, NJ. It's going to be first time at a SU event as I have never been to Convention or Regionals. I am really excited. But also nervous as I have never been away from Joaquin and Solimar for so long and this is for the whole weekend. YIKES! At least it's only 1 hour 30 minutes away...Just in Case!

Here is my interpretation of the sketch for this week. Gotta LOVE this new Summer Mini DSP.

I hope you will play along.


Paper: Wild Wassabi, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Beyond the Garden DSP
