Tuesday Morning Sketches #114

Good Morning!  I hope your week is off to a great start.

It's the beginning of October which is Breast Cancer Awareness month - but the month means more to me than just awareness.  My sister, Theresa, celebrates her birthday on the 6th and we celebrate her 4th year of being cancer free.  So this month at TMS is dedicated to my sister and Breast Cancer Awareness.  Please, ladies, take care of your boobies!

You must use the sketch, add some pink and you can only combine TMS' challenge with a maximum of two other challenges.  Participate each week following those rules and you'll be entered for a blog candy drawing.

Remember, the first step to beating this disease is... A W A R E N E S S
