Paint Party Friday GIVEAWAY !!!!

Yep, I am giving away a copy of Sue Bleiweiss's book, The Sketchbook Challenge.  I posted on Sunday the pics and my excitement over my tiny piece in the book.  Hey, I am published!!!!  So in celebration I would like to give a copy of the book away.  It is wonderful, packed with all kinds of how to's and inspiration.  All you have to do is read last Sundays post - and leave a comment here or there!  We missed Sunday Sketches and I am still celebrating the books release.   Here is my sketch triggered by Natures Beauty

I started with a photo my cousin had shot on the streets somewhere in California!  and from there my mind wandered!

I will announce the WINNER next Friday at our Paint Party.  Winner will be randomly selected!  It takes me all week to get through as many participants as I can !!!!  Thanks to Kristin and Eva for hosting!  I am also super excited that MINNIEMIE IS THE GUEST ARTIST !!!!  If you follow my blog you know I am a fan of hers and received an incredible ATC not to long ago from her!  She is still patiently waiting on mine, thank you!  YAY, don't miss checking her out!!!!  AMAZING!!!!!

cheers, dana
