Recipe for Happiness

When I saw the challenge this week at City Crafter Challenge Blog I knew right away that I wanted to participate.  The Guest Designer shared a beautiful project that you won't want to miss.  Since I just LOVE to bake, I may even enter this challenge more than once.  I spent a lot of time thinking about what I wanted to make, and I decided to share this very special recipe.  It is a recipe for happiness, and it really is cute and sound advice.  I'm not sure if I should keep it as a card, or make it into a recipe mini album.

Here is a link to the City Crafter Challenge Blog so that you can check it out and play along.  I know that Kirstie and her crew would love to have you join in the fun.   I'm entering the following challeges as well:

The challenge at Papertake Weekly Challenge Blog this week allows you to use any sketch from the past for your inspiration.  That's really a nice challenge becuse Dawny has SO MANY cute sketches that there is sure to be one (or more) that you will LOVE, and be able to design a card or project using it.   I know that Dawny and her crew would also love having you visit and play along.
 
I thank you for visiting today.  I hope you will take the time to read the "Recipe for Happiness".  It really is great advice.  We can all use an extra serving of patience, love, generosity, understanding, forgiveness and laughter.  I know I sure can.  And then spreading this recipe everywhere we go is the key to sharing that happiness.  It's just one of those recipes that is SO MUCH BETTER when it is shared.
 
Have a blessed day.
