Happiness is....

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

Pretty sure I've used this title before. It probably won't be the last time either.  Good morning and welcome to post 4 of the month of 28 posts.

Today's LO is for a plethora of challenges. I love it when that happens, and it hasn't happened in a while!

First and foremost, today is reveal day at Child's Play Challenges.  This first challenge for the month is inspired by one of my favorites special shows as a Child...Who doesn't sympathize with Charlie Brown???

I dont do a lot of Valentine pages, so I went with the boy and his dog. If we are on the couch, so is he, as close to us as he can be. I've decided our dog is more human than dog. If we go to the dog park, he goes and says hello to all the humans before running around checking out the other dogs. So yes, happiness is a boy and his dog.

I mentioned this is for a few other challenges as well. LOAD day 4 was to to a page in a short amount of time. Well, this took about 40 minutes.  Thanks to a sketch at Stuck! Sketches (my first time plating there), a recipe prompt from My Scraps & More and a self imposed stash challenge to use a lot of Basic Grey paper this month.  Go check out these blogs!

The recipe is tags, torn paper, an arrow and a frame.  The edges of the striped strips are torn, the frame is tucked under the corner of the photo. The tags are my journaling spot, and well the arrows...Here is the sketch.

So that's it for me in a very large nutshell today.  Please come join our Charlie Brown Valentine challenge at Child's Play Challenges! We want to see what you can create!
