Yay for Amelia!!

My daughter, Amelia, is also an avid SCS fan. In fact, she has her own ID over there AND an ever-expanding gallery. Check it out:


I got a p/m from the regularly-scheduled sketch challenge hostess, Roxy, asking me if I thought Amelia (who is only 14, by the way!) would like to guest hostess a sketch challenge. I shouted up the stairs and asked her what she thought. Her response?? "Are you KIDDING??!!??" She was TOTALLY stoked!! She came up with the sketch with VERY little help from me (in fact, I was gone on Sunday evening visiting a friend when she came up with the initial plan). I am SOOOO proud of what she came up with. This card was a sample I made for her to use along with her sketch challenge. She rocked, baby!!
