Alter Ego - "Chicago"...

"Chicago" provided by Rick St. dennis
What can I say?  Would love to be tall and leggy and able to partner with choreographer Derek Hough...

...back to reality Virginia Lee.
This week's 613 Ave C's Challenge is the all time favorite - Anything Goes!  The sponsor this time is Rick St dennis, one of my favorite artists.  This means I can search his images till I find one that strikes a chord for me and do anything I want - love that freedom to let my mind wander without restraint!  You are going to want to see the other DT inspiration pieces - some super creative ideas!
