Hi blogging friends!  I created this layout for SOUS challenge #4.  Although the sketch was not a difficult sketch to interpret, still I struggled because I couldn't make up my mind how I wanted to interpret it!  Needless to say, 8 hours later this is what I came up with.  Hope you enjoy viewing it and it inspires you in some way.  Please leave me a comment on what you think.
