Welcome to the Paper Jewels and Critter Sketch Challenge Blog Hop!  If you arrived here from Jacquie's blog you are on the right track.  If you didn't head back to the Critter Challenge blog to start at the beginning as you don't want to miss out on all the fun as there is multiple blog candy to be won!  We are having our own little Easter Egg Hunt!  To be eligible to win the blog candy you must leave some love (comment) on each blog participating in the hop and participate in the sketch challenge!  You will have until Wednesday at 10am EST to post your creations on the Critter Challenge Blog.  All winners will be posted there as well on Thursday April 1st!  The sketch you will be using is this:

AND YOU MUST INCLUDE JEWELS ON YOUR CREATION!

Here is my take on the sketch:

I used the Sweet Pea image "Love is Gone" from the Ching-Chou Kiuk's Fantasy Art Collection available at Paper Jewels.  She was coloured with copics (YG0000, YG21, Y11, YR21, YR24, YG95, YG97, YG67, YG13, YG23, YG03, G88, E33, E35, E49, E39, R37, R22, R02, E00, E11 and C00).  All paper was from My Minds Eye Bohemia Line and the jewel brads are from Recollections which I picked up from our local Michaels store.  I've had the "Thinking of You" sentiment for many years and unfortunately don't know the manufacturer!   Thanks for visiting my blog and playing along!  Be sure to continue on to Audrey's blog and see what amazing creation she has in store for you!
