This page was created using this month's sketch.  My baby girl is holding a frog, in case you couldn't tell.  Hence the name "kiss". 

 Using the Silk Acrylic Glaze that came in the main kit, I used a paint brush to create a splatter effect on my page.  This month's sketch is below.

Don't ask me where this page came from cuz I have no idea.  LOL  Something about the paper screamed Poppies.  Ok, now I really sound crazy don't I?
