Let Your Light Shine (My Creative Sketches Contest)

I made it just in the nick of time!  I couldn't pass the opportunity to participate in this great contest at My Creative Sketches.  I didn't have the time to play last month, but i am determined to catch up since the sketches are awesome and the prize this month is phenomenal!!!  Check this out!
I mean, how gorgeous is that prize!?  I would be SO elated to win only ONE of these fantastic products so can you imagine winning ALL?!  The contest goes on for 3 months and next month is the last, so make sure to check out the rules HERE and make sure to participate in December!

This month's inspirational sketch was so nice, it got my creative juices flowing right away...
I just ADORE this candid picture i took of my nieces when they came to visit earlier this month.  We had gone for a little walk in a wooded park close to where i live and they were so excited and amazed at everything that they saw.  I wish that they always keep looking at life with such awe! :)
I used papers from the Simple Stories' Year.o.graphy collection, Dusty Attic chipboard, a K&Company chipboard title 'Shine' along with miscellaneous brads, buttons and paper flowers. 
Here are some close-ups...

Thank you so much for dropping by!  I hope i've inspired you to create, if only just a little...
