Diva Coffee Break Designs # 215

Ok, I have spent every free minute I have had trying to fix things on my computer.  I am running on a dinosaur as far as computers go. We purchased this computer 9 years ago this month, just a few months after windows XP came out.  Anyways it has been giving me my share of problems over the last few months.  It probably doesn’t help that I have a 2 year old who loves to play on the computer and do all sorts of wonky things to it.  She even knows how to pick the lock on the cabinet that the computer is in and turn it on, so it is not safe from her.  My latest problem was not being able to save any of my pictures to my computer, but I have that fixed so now we are in business again.  I think that I have also fixed Windows Live Writer’s settings with my blog so that it is working again.  Boy I missed some of the features of live writer over that last little bit.  Check out the post here for a chance at some blog candy.  I am going to be doing some “Spring Cleaning” of my stamping stash and will be adding more stuff to the blog candy I am sure.  So go check it out.
Ok, so today is Diva Challenge Wednesday and we have a sketch for you.
DCBD215SKETCH When I saw this sketch, I thought “wow, what in the world am  I going to do with that one?”  Luckily I checked it out WAY in advance because it took some time to get it going.  Here is what I came up with:
