Meet Sasha!


Well I was lucky to get this project completed before I was hit with a nasty sinus infection.  But I am not going to whine it about because I want you to meet Sasha.  What an adorable digital image. Gosh if you haven’t worked with digital images before you are really missing such an opportunity to find so many wonderful images over at McMahon Five Designs Store.

A friend of mine in another group did the cutest dry erase board and I’ve been wanted to do one too.  I had no clue that it could be so easy.  But after reading how she made her board I said I could do that.  So I went scouring in my craft closet (that needs cleaning out) and found an empty 8x10” frame.  I really liked the wood tone on it so I left it alone.  But you could alter the wood to match what you are making or to a room.  Well I guess I said enough.  Here is the photo of my dry erase board which Sasha so elegantly adorns it.  Details of all the embellishments will be below the photo.   And how I colored Sasha using my computer and Prisma Colored Pencils.
