Our Very Own Forrest Gump

I didn't get a chance to try last week's sketch, so I decided to make time today to try another fun sketch over at the Stuck On U Sketches blog. Click here to go there.  One thing we were supposed to do is use some kind of bling on the page.  You can't really see it, but the stars are glittery, and the white round glitter dots are just that -- glittery! 

I had this picture of my son-in-law from our trip to Daytona Beach, Florida in 2008. I knew the picture would be perfect for the sketch. I found the picture of Forrest Gump on the internet and thought it complimented the layout and the picture of my son-in-law.

Hope you like it.  Double click for a better look.
