Sunday Sketch & A Giveaway!

Good morning all! I've started a book for my granddaughter Ashlyn, as a Christmas gift. Below are the first 2 pages.

The story is about an incident that really happened to us, but of course I'm embellishing a little for the book. Here are the same pages painted. I still need to add the words.

I'm off to check out Sophia's blog to see who else is participating in her weekly sketches. If you want to come along too, then check out her link on the right side.
I've decided to have a give away for this painting!

All you need to do to enter to win, is become a follower and leave me a comment on this post. That's it! Good luck everyone!

Your story book is really a super idea, Debbie. I like that idea and maybe I should consider something like that for my newphew and niece who live far away. :)

Thank you for always participating in SS. Love it :) Hugs

I love this idea. What a treasure it will be.

I was browsing through some older prayer requests and found one with your name on it. How is your nephew Andrew doing???
