greetings from hawaii!!!
here is my submission for the Kraft contest over at the wonderful website They Draw and Cook http://www.theydrawandcook.com/recipes/maui-luau-sandwich-by-nicole-esposito
Pippa, her new friend Peyton (like the name is a surprise with my mad love for Peyton Manning) and their bongo playing pig Penelope all invite you to try Kraft's Maui Luau sandwich. with yummy ham and swiss and a sweet touch pineapple (amongst a few other goodies).
let's hope the judges like it...
love, Pippa

illustration friday~yield

so, i'm thinking grandma may have *yielded* and bought little noah his much coveted green geiko galoshes....;)

this is a piece i did last year for a story called "the most boring birthday in the universe" for stories for children magazine. i thought it was a good example of *yielding*....in a cute way of course;)

....and so my heart is so sad today :(

as most of you know i am the biggest peyton manning fan there is....and it's so sad to see the colts cut him loose today. after 14 years of greatness! well, mr. manning, i will follow you wherever you go because i love you that much!
so...i shall wear my (colts) manning jerseys with pride...until i need to buy some new ones in the fall.
thank you peyton for 14 years of nothing but greatness and skill. you are the classiest man to ever grace a football field! and a hero and role model for many young boys out there!
love you...xxx
