My first attempt at illustration

So after contemplating this blog for a while now and many sleepless nights about it, I tackled the process of designing the header yesterday.  While I love to design things, an illustrator, I am not.  I can find my way around Adobe Illustrator but photoshop is my forte.  So, be that as it may, I figured I'd find what I wanted on  Unfortunately, I couldn't find exactly what I wanted.  

So, I decided to design my own!!!  I bought an illustration of a girl that I liked. Cute, but not me or what I had in mind.... 
I actually woke up this morning at 3:45am and could not go back to sleep thinking about her! (Let's call her Brooke... she looks like a brooke to me.)  So, Brooke was on my mind and at 5, I finally got up to start working on her... only to realize I was out of milk, which meant no coffee!  I put on some clothes and headed to the nearest convenient store and I'm glad I put on some real clothes and not just pj's b/c the world is bustling in my town at 5:15 in the morning!  

After a few hours of working, I have my header how I envisioned!!  Complete with pennant banner AND tissue paper balls!!!  

Now if I can just figure out the rest of this blogging stuff, I'll be doing good :)

Happy Hump Day!!
