Here's to the next 100 my friend xx

  2. I love sketches!!! Happy 100th :)

  3. Congrats on #100 challenges. My fav challenge is Anything Goes because there is always a wonderful variety.

  24. Way to go on 100 Challenges! I absolutely love challenges! They help get my creative juices flowing and hopefully get me thinking outside the box. I like one off challenges...like use a certain color, or use a certain animal, or a certain word. Something a little different then ATG, sketch or color scheme to spice things up.
