Smile Like You Mean It
I just HAD to create something with some different colors and I really like how this one turned out! I so love this photo I used courtesy of SassyArts from Flickr. She has some really wonderful photos that she shares in the Collage Images group on Flickr. Don't you just love that wonderful smile on her face? When I saw her I knew she would be perfect for the phrase "There 's a Silver Lining to Every Cloud" . This piece has such a happy feeling- it makes me smile every time I look at it!This is a little banner I created. I just love the little girl's face! I have been feeling so inspired lately- my muse has been keeping me quite busy! I hope she is here for an extended visit this time! I'm off to visit all of your blogs, ladies, because really YOU are all are my muse and you never fail to inspire me!! Thank you!!

great works Michelle! I love the little girl as well, and the happy looking Mama above. I am calling on my muse to come play tomorrow, but only after my chores are done (as in clearing a work spot in my scrappy room).

Good Evening Michelle!
Lovely artwork as always! Glad you are feeling so inspired, I haven't, probably cause I have to say goodbye to my BFF this coming Tuesday! It seems to be sapping all the happiness from me! Hope you are having a lovely week so far, keep up the beautiful work, love looking at it so much...
