Andrew's Picasso!

Today's SCS challenge was sooooooo much fun!!! The inspiration challenge was Picasso. It was based on a simple line drawing of a camel. The write up said "If you really are just not inspired by Mr. Camel, then create a card that isn't your normal style (these are challenges remember *wink*) or at least a funny card."
I knew I had no Pablo Picasso in me so I enlisted the experts in my family. My children. Now remember, when you have a 3 and a 4 years old you get the most INSPIRATIONAL basic drawings. Anyhow, I am sharing a card that was created with my son Andrew. I gave him 4 pieces of whisper white cardstock and asked him if he would draw me some things (I didn't specify). He drew a pic of him and I, 3 bars of soap (don't ask!), our house and our truck (2006 Toyota Tacoma can't you tell?).
