Smile


Renee fractured her ankle during a soccer game in early January. At first she was in a plaster cast and on crutches. She found this pretty hazardous outside on all our snow and ice, so they changed her to a walking cast, which she was in for several weeks. She also had to start physiotherapy! She was pretty heartbroken about having to give up dance and soccer, but she went through it all with a smile on her face and was a real trooper! Her ankle is getting much better and we're hoping that in awhile she'll be back to all her activities! I did this one for a challenge at Let's Get Sketchy, where they had a pretty awesome sketch and also for a challenge at Scrap With V. The challenge there was a photo inspiration where I loved the wood grain and had just gotten some great My Minds Eye papers which had woodgrains!

Materials- Patterned Paper- My Minds Eye Brightside , My Minds Eye Accessory Sheet, Flowers- Prima and K&Company, Brads- Making Memories, Cardstock- Bazzill, Twine- The Twinery, Distress Ink- Ranger (Tim Holtz)
