Finally, week 12 the final week of course work is completed. Yippee! The assignment was to reinterpret sketches that we’d previously done. As Cathy Z says, ” Nothing in design is really new. It is simply just reinterpreting things that are built upon solid foundations of design principles and elements.” I choose to reinterpret a sketch from week 5 (previously done as “Groovy Girl” and then one from week 9 (previously done as “She is so beautiful”).

week-12-a-webAnna’s friends at her birthday party. They went roller skating/blading, ate pizza and cake, did makeovers, had a dance party, worked on scrapbooks (that’s my girl), watched a movie, slept a little, ate chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast and cleaned up. I needed a nap the next day, but it was a fun party.


week-12-big-webChristmas eve celebration with all the in-laws. The evening started at a church service where grandpa sang in the choir. A wonderful meal at Grandma and Grandpa’s house (Ellie was hungry and started sneaking food from the table) was followed by singing Christmas carols with Brandon playing the piano. Then the chaos of gift opening. It was a blessed Christmas celebration with some of my dear family.
