A CAS Sketch – Today I prepared a Clean and Simple Sketch for you to follow.  I love to see the different looks achieved by using the same basic sketch — and that said, you can go CAS if you prefer OR you can dress up this basic sketch as much as you like!  It’ll be fun to see the variances! Have fun with it!!!
