    I'm not sure what happened to my comment, I know I posted to this a couple days ago. I have been having trouble with blogger lately so maybe they ate it!

    I want to thank Cindy for choosing me as designer for this week. I was so busy this month I wasn't sure I could get something done for the challenge but it was such a wonderful painting and fun I just had to and now I am so glad I did! I just found out too that my necklace was featured on Polymer Clay Daily from this challenge so a double surprise and honor!

    and thank you for all your kind words and encouraging! Yes, I really liked the ticket touch too, the ticket booth is small in the painting but I love searching out the details! 🙂
