Pursue Happiness

Happy Friday! Hooray! I have such a fun day planned, spending most of it with dear friends, doing what I love most... going out to lunch, shopping and paper crafting! How lucky am I?

Tomorrow is World Card Making Day, and there are lots of fun activities planned all over cyber-space and at homes, in stores and at other venues, some of which will last throughout the week. Here's something to get you started... a new sketch from Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge!

Okay, maybe it was an obvious choice (subliminal message?), but as soon as I saw this sketch, I reached for Discover Your Wings. The images in this set are so lovely, and I adore all the greetings. And, of course, I couldn't help but pull out my September Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients kit. The Restoration collection by Crate Paper is one of my FAVES, and I LOVE the brads Taylor included in this kit.

Okay, so I moved my butterfly a little, but a girl can take a little artistic license, right? (*wink*)

Don't forget... next Friday is the Taylored Expressions monthly release, with previews starting in a few days. I've heard through the grapevine that it's going to be a doozy (but when it is not?)! lol

In the meantime, please visit the rest of the Sketch Crew to see what loveliness they've turned up using this sketch.
