Happy Sweet Sketch Wednesday! 

Yes, the days and weeks just seem to be flying by!  But we are so happy that you are here to enjoy another wonderful sketch from my sister, Arlana.   This week is our 103rd week since the inception of Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  And this is Sweet Sketch 103 that you will use for this week challenge.

The Stamping Boutique is our sponsor this week and they have a wonderful prize of
 5 free digi's of the winner's choice.
Take some time to check out Tracey's images in her store.  Believe will love what you see.  She has two blogs that are linked from her store so check those out too!

This is Judi posting from the Pacific Northwest  near Mount Rainier.  It is finally starting to warm up here and everyone is loving the more normal temperatures we have enjoyed during the past week and a half.  Below is a photo of Mount Rainier taken by one of my sons. This particular son has summited Mt Rainier four times and also hiked the Wonderland Trail around Mt Rainier adding a few extra hikes along the way...approximately 115 miles.  My youngest son has summited Mt Rainier three times.  It is also a favorite hiking spot for my husband and I.  Our favorites hikes are Tolmie Peak and Sunrise but any where on this gorgeous national park is a lovely adventure.

Since everyone has been sharing their favorite local flowers, I thought I would show a few pics of  the hundreds of variety of  rhododendrons that grow so well here in the Pacific Northwest.
