Night prompt

So, I've been doing pretty good on my weight watchers.  Over the cheer weekend, I gained a pound but I know it's because we had to eat out everywhere.  I've decided that the next time we go out of town for cheer, I'm going to bring a cooler with point friendly foods and snacks.  Luckily, I was able to lose a few pounds this week to make up for the gain.  I am still really enjoying the freedom of weight watchers and I can't wait to get to my goal!

Moving on.....the prompt for February at Creative Everyday is "Night."  I had actually started this piece before they posted it, so I was so excited to see that it fit the theme nicely.  I had created some backgrounds awhile back and I really wanted to use them.  

This little guy was taken from the art to share in one of my Sommerset magazines.  I thought he was super cute!  Of course, he needed a little cap and something to lean on.  I mean, he's so full of swag!  He looks like he's saying, "Just try me and watch me go all ghetto on your a##!"
Seriously though, I found this sweet quote to go along with the theme and it seemed to just make the whole thing tie up nicely.  Does that even make sense?  You know, like a pretty bow on a package?  
If you have to explain it.....

Anyshways,  I hope you like it.  The glowing lights are done with a super easy art trick that I learned at The Artist Within.  I will have to show you sometime.  But not today, cause I didn't think that far ahead so I don't have pictures of the steps I took.  Sorry.
