Be Happy!

My mantra these days is "Don't worry! Be happy! (Not a bad song either!)I interpret that to mean that you should do at least one thing per day that makes you smile, whether it be buying a new pair of shoes, crafting, working out, trying a nice wine, or reading. Just do it!

Here's November's Bombshell sketch, created by moi!

Here's my take on the sketch!

I used the new-to-me "Girl's Ruin" set by Bombshell stamps. The image was colored with Copic markers.

"Waste Not" is Ms. November's challenge, we're to use scraps, rather than let them go to waste. The faux crocodile specialty paper is from my scraps bin and is from my days on the FiberMark design team. The company is no longer making crafting products, which makes me sad, but I do have a substantial stash of full sheets and scraps, which makes me happy. I also used a thin strip of black metallic textured paper, also by FiberMark, under the lace ribbon, which was a rak from a friend. The patterned paper from the "Black Tie" collection by Basic Grey. It was also from my scrap stash! Yay!

Thanks for visiting today and remember to take time to do something to make you happy!
