This is my latest project for Sketches in Thyme using the following design.  My hometown, Miamisburg, Ohio, is the location of one of the two largest conical Native American mounds in the Eastern United States.  It looks like a giant triangle...So when I saw the sketch, I thought of the Mound.  As fate would have it, I was babysitting my second cousin who had never been to the top of the Mound despite living in Miamisburg her whole life.  So I said, "We have to fix that!"  So my daughter, my cousin, and myself climbed the 65 foot mound and took our pictures at the top.  Let me tell you, it's a workout, but the view of the Miami Valley is incredible and makes the shaking legs from climbing over hundred steps worth it!  To pull this project together, I used a variety of papers from Echo Park's "Anything Goes" collection, namely because the feathery paper reminded me of a Native America headdress.
