November 15th Challenge

Hi everyone, its time for another challenge here at Once Upon A...Sketch. We hope you find some time to play along.

We also officially welcome some new Design Team members, the super talented Maiko Kosugi, Goergia Heald and Larissa Albernaz. Welcome girls.

November 15th Challenge

Journalling criteria: This time the journalling criteria focuses on YOU as a woman OR ANY female in your life. What is the best thing about being a woman? Motherhood? Shopping? Make Up? Girls nights? Gossip? Your journalling can be as long as you wish and in any language, but you must journal at least 2 sentences on the best part of being a woman.

You must combine the journalling criteria with this sketch..
