Don't Worry, Be Happy!

Friday... come to me...

Hope you are as happy as I am because it is Friday.  Tomorrow I will attend the Puerto Rico Scrapbook Event.  It's the fifth year in a row... and I am very excited.  A lot of great teachers will come, but I am specially happy that I will meet Teresa Collins... OMG!!!  I can't wait.

Anyway... today is Friday Friends with Flair at Unity...  Here's my post and contribution to this wonderful weekly activity I really enjoy.  

First, the story... my mom has been through a lot of stress lately... I made her a simple card just to remind her that being happy is a decision.  I don't pretend to be the wise gal but I've been certainly through a lot in my life too... as everybody has their own issues... and I've learned that there's always situations you don't want in life, but the attitude is what really counts and define if that situation is worth the worries, or your happiness being threaten.  Does that make any sense?


The card is a CAS style (clean and simple).  I used patterned paper as based, placed a big button with baker's twine, stamped the word "happy" from a Unity Stamp Co. past KOM, and then stamped it again in other papers for paper piecing each letter.


Also used other stamps from Inkadinkado to add the word "be" and three flowers with some glitter.


Just a happy card to remind my mom her happiness is not dependable on others, but only her.

Have a great weekend.

What a great "pick-me-up" card! And you know, you're totally right - we can choose to be happy or we can choose to be miserable. But, sometimes we all need a little reminder. Hope you have a blast at your PR Scrapbook Event and get a picture with Teresa! Way cool! :)

You are definitely right! Another quote I find really helpful at times when it seems life is dragging me down is - You cannot control what happens, you can only control how you react to it.
I love the colours you've used - bright & happy :)
