I had to give Lauren Meader’s sketch a try. Love all the dimension to the layout of her sample. With my little Ethan starting swimming lessons today, I had to go with a fun water theme.
I have a huge fear when it comes to my children and our swimming pool. I actually hate having a pool, but it was always a dream of my husbands. One of those marital compromises…”You get the pool and I get a stamping ‘studio'”. Needless to say, I stamp in our dining room…lol
Ethan is a fish. I can’t turn my back for one minute (as no pool owner should). We even have our pool 100ft away from our house with its own fence and double locks on the gates. I still can’t trust Ethan. So, swimming lessons it is.
Here he is at 18months:
Here is Ethan today (4 years old) amazingly floating after 20 minutes:
Okay, now to my sample for the sketch:
