A note for you VSSOA

I've been playing in a challenge or two over at Stampin' Out Alzheimer's site!

A small donation (see link in sidebar) gets you access to this week-long virtual stamping event, which has all sorts of challenges and chances to win some fabulous prizes. All proceeds from this event will go directly to the Alzheimer's Association, which is a cause dear to my heart. The association provides valuable information, education and support for Alzheimer's patients and their families, as well as funding research to find a cure for this frightening disease. Jen Tapler founded this event. Her dad has been rapidly progressing through the stages of Alzheimer's, and having watched those stages first-hand with my grandfather, my heart breaks for her and the grandfather this disease is cheating her son out of. So if you have a few dollars to spare, please particpate in this fundraiser. Not only can you win some fabulous prizes, but you can make a DIFFERENCE!

I decided to play with the Verve Sketch Challenge for a chance to win 3 New Release Verve Stamp Sets - Up, Up and Away, Dare to Be You, and Sweet on You. The Rules were to create a project using this sketch and upload to the SOA gallery with the tag "VSSOA".

I always thought it would be cool to use fun flock on an image from the Verve set "Because of you." So I thought this sketch would be the perfect opportunity to give it a try. So here it is. Enjoy!!!
