Laura's Sketch #49

Whew, it's hot. I mean, turn-your-air-conditioning-on hot. The first time I asked Mom if we could turn the AC on, she just gave me a look. No? Ok. About an hour later, I just couldn't take it anymore. Because heat rises, my room gets extra hot. I asked her again, and she relented. Ha ha. I win. Neener neener. I hope this is not a preview of the summer to come. It's only April 6!

There was a new spinner in class today. She mentioned that she was training for a 5K. Go her! :)

Tonight, I worked on some more origami troll cards, but I took a break do to a card sketch challenge over at 2 Sketches 4 You. As you can see, my affinity for Prima flowers hasn't diminished one bit. I wanted to in corporate some ribbon above the sentiment, but then it didn't look as good as I had envisioned. Plan B was to use a scalloped border, and I think it tied the other elements in the card nicely.
