Weekend Whirlwind! A BlogHer11 Recap, A Sketch and A GIVEAWAY...SWEET!

The Recap!
(Photo courtesy of
I'm Just back from Blogher11 in San Diego, CA and am feeling inspired, enlightened and totally ready to blog full-steam ahead! I met alot of wonderful people from the blogging world, spent several hours checking out Brand Sponsored booths on the Expo floor (I came away with an unbelievable stash for sure!)
I attended some enlightening & awesome sessions (Boomer fave) along with some amazing parties and am already looking forward to next year! 
All in all a fan-tabulous event that had so much to offer it could have went on for several days more!
The Sketch!
I must admit that I missed my daily dose of Pop Art Mini sketching and coloring time! So much so, that I had to get a fix as soon as I got home! I grabbed a box of colored pencils and an ink pen to create a quick ACEO sketch! A size and medium that I hadn't used in a while so was a fun change up!
  Here's a couple pix of the finished Mini-Mini.

Frosty ACEO  - Colored Pencil - 2"x3-1/2"

Here's the details!
