Dream Big...

A couple years back, I had the incredible opportunity of flying a B-2 Stealth Bomber. Wellllllll....sort of.  My husband and I were invited to a one on one class in the simulation training area.  We were able to sit where the pilots actually train and fly in what felt like the real deal! Amazing the graphics and how realistic it felt as you were flying from one side of the world in the dark and watching the sun come up as you entered another part of the world.  It even went so far as to "ping" when you were low on fuel and you had to maneuver in the air with a refueling plane.  Let's just say it was like watching me try to fit a square into a wasn't happening.  Thus my dreams of being a famous female pilot were thwarted as I'm fairly certain these are not intended to be used like Kamikaze planes. 
This wonderful memory came back to me when I saw this image from Mo's Digital Pencil called Dream G. She's all colored up in copics as she looks to the skies and her inspirational quote is matted on dog tags. 
I've made this fitting for two challenges as well and I'd love to enter them at:
DP2 -  173; Don't Be Square and Catered Crop - Star Bright (She's wearing her patriotic pants)

Thanks so much for your visit!
Hugs n' Happy Stamping,
