Oh The Places You'll Go...

My sweet husband asked me what I wanted to do for Mother's Day and I said I wanted to watch old movies and color all day.  He cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner for my Mom and me.  I listened  to music on Pandora, sang off key, colored and even fit two old movies in.  This is one of the items I colored.  I have a need for a graduation card and wanted something non-traditional.   I went shopping for Wren digi and found this one.  It reminded me of the perfect Graduation Book by Dr. Seuss, Oh The Places You'll Go.  She looks like a modern little gal off to find her way living the college life.   You can get this digi called "Joy Ride" at the Tiddly Inks Store.

I followed the Sketch from Sketch Saturday after seeing Lesley's darling creation at Grenouille Greetings.  The papers are from Authentique Paper's Blissful Collection.  Coloring medium is Copics.  The sentiment was created in MS Word.  Pearls are from my stash.  Kinda simple design, but I so struggled with the DP choices and placement.  But I am satisfied with the end result.  

Hope your Mother's Day was as restful and fun as mine!
