    Looks to me like you were having yourself a little “me” time and a whole lot of fun! I’m very happy for you! You’re so inspired! This is lovely, as everything you create is, and YES, you should have a doodle time at AQC – at least the next time I go! Have a great weekend Anna, and happy doodling!
