Diva Challenge #290 and Made by Joey #136

a travelling two-fer
Diva Challenge #290: a Duo-tangle using Flux and 'Nzeppel
Made by Joey #136: Finish my Tangle Series-Fracas

On Monday morning, reading the challenges, I was in a hotel lobby with my sketchbook  waiting for my sister to get up. We were wrapping up a wonderful week of wedding events in Seattle, celebrating the marriage of my nephew.
I wasn't able to complete any travelling tangles this week and didn't get much drawing done at all. With my few essential tools and a 4 hour flight delay, I got down to business. I worked back and forth between the two.
This was the wedding present:

Me and my handsome nephew J.R. on the big day.

The adorable couple:

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Your thoughtful and generous comments delight and inspire me!
