For a friend's new baby.

A bunch of illustrator's for Highlight's Magazine decided to get together to create a fun gift for Nancy Cote, who is also an illustrator for Highlight's to commemorate the birth of her new grand daughter. We each chose a letter of her grand daughter's name and the theme was "pumpkin patch" so we had to have at least one pumpkin in the art. It was a fun little break from work! :)

I have just signed up to be part of PiBoIdMo 2011. What's that? It's a challenge to create 30 new picture book ideas in 30 days! Sound tough? Yes! But I think it's just the push I need to get me going. Even though I have been illustrating for children's publications since 1999 I want to also write for some, especially picture books.

So, here we go! :) Yikes!!!!!!
