Sweetie Pi

For those who are regular visitors to my blog, you KNOW how much I love a good sketch! It always helps to have something visual as a starting point for creativity.

I recently discovered a really awesome sketch blog that I wanted to share with you! 2 Sketches 4 You posts a new sketch at the beginning of each week -- so it's a perfect site to get your mojo going after a long weekend!

The sketch above is this week's sketch. And... here is my take on it:

My best friend's husband is a math major. (For those of you who are NOT math braniacs, the symbol is the Greek letter "Pi".) ;) He was telling me about how his high school math students loved to celebrate Pi day (March 14 ~ 3.14)... and that got my brain turning. (They all bring in homemade pies to share with the school.) I knew the sentiment that I wanted to use, but wasn't sure how I would incorporate the symbol. And then... as I was digging through my craft stash, I found just what I was looking for in my Basic Grey Recess Chipboard box. YEAH! It was meant to be! :)

I hope you get a chance to craft this weekend too! I'm hoping to barricade myself in my craft room for at least an hour today. :) (pinkie toes crossed!)
