Be Happy

Oh what a beautiful morning, oh what a beautiful day... I've got a beautiful feeling everythings going my way...
I think it's safe to say that I woke up on the right side of the bed this morning because I'm definitely feeling a bit of pep in my step. Which may have something to do with the fact that I am finally going to be able to get high speed internet out to my neck of the woods next week... no more dial-up connection for this boondocks dweller! Woot, woot! ;)

Well, it's Thursday and that means there is a brand new challenge over on the Tickled Pink challenge blog. This week we've got a great sketch by Emma to follow. I took a few liberties with some of the more wonky elements but other than that I think I stayed pretty true to the original layout. I also used Tomboy Pinkette Audrey once again but this time I did a bit of simple altering to her by cutting off the pail of worms and her arm holding the fishing pole. Then all I had to do was add a few flowers into her hand and Audrey was now ready to ditch the fishing hole and head off to the big parade. That's what those banners in the pattern paper make me think of anyway. :)

So if you would like a chance at winning this week's prize then why not play along? Don't forget that your card must feature a Tickled Pink stamp in order to qualify for the prize... these include: Lil Lolitas and Lads, Pinkettes, Pink Pets and Cherries. All of which can be found in the Tickled Pink store.
