This Wednesday stop by for a peek into my studio and the creative chaos that is currently the state of affairs. I'll admit it's not a pretty sight...or site...lol I'm in the process of reorganizing and dare I say p.u.r.g.i.n.g...not an attractive word, is it?

Added stickles to all the buttons

was the extra little oomph! I needed:
See the snow, the rolling hills, the bright dancing colors? I'm from Alaska and this picture leads me to thoughts of this: aurora borealis
Gather all those elements together, get the creative juices flowing and here's my take:
What do you think? It was really difficult for me to stay within CAS boundaries!
