I Can See Clearly Now

Well, happy hump day everyone!! It's wednesday and we have a new challenge for you over at Twisted Sketches. If you haven't joined us before, please think about creating with us this week! We always have a great sketch with an added bonus of a "twist" to spark your creativity!!!

My hubby took me on a pretty brutal hike on Sunday and didn't warn me ahead of time. Probably thought I wouldn't go, LOL. It was 10.6 miles round trip to the peak of Mt. Rose at 9700 ft. It took us 6 hours altogether. I have to say the views were breath taking!!! You could see in every direction for miles! Beautiful views of all our surrounding lakes - Lake Tahoe (in the background), Donner Lake, Prosser Lake, Boca Dam and views of Reno and Washoe Valley. Hence the title of the LO - I Can See Clearly Now!


The "twist this week is CLEAR, any how, any way and hop on over to the blog to pick up the sketch!!!!

Another couple views of the title, I used clear letters so a little hard to see in the photo's.



The mountains were cut with the Dinosaur Tracks Cricut cartridge.


Supplies used: cardstock - kraft, brown, green; patterned papers - Don't Feed The Bears from Under The Stars by Rusty Pickle and Happy Trails by K & Co.; chipboard alphabet and ghost alphabet both in Lemonade Stand by Heidi Swapp; mountains cut from Dinosaur Tracks Cricut cart at 2 1/2"; font - CK Template; ink - Amaretto PowderPuffs; hiking boot stickers - my stash.

Now let's see your interpretation!!!!!
