Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #71

WOW ... where's the time going??  Here we are in the middle of September already ... Yikes, Christmas will be here before you know it!!

Anyways, now that shocking fact is behind me ... LOL ... I would love to share with you, today's creation for the Midnight Madness Sketch ChallengeANOTHER awesome sketch for this week and I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it (that doesn't happen often, LOL).

Have you taken the time to check out the new digis Priscilla has available in her store??  Well let me tell you, they are as unique as her challenges and equally amazing!!  Today I decided to use her "flying birds" set for my creation.

Images - Flying Bird from "priscillastyles"  Store, SU sentiment
Paper - GCD STudios from Hobby Lobby
