Embellished Canvas, It’s my Party Day 4

Today is the fourth and final day of our projects.  Tomorrow is all about your present! 🙂
For this project I wanted to do something that didn’t involve sewing.  I know, you’re shocked, right?  It’s been a while.

The quote is one my friend Amy left in the comments after the “Mom”-day post I did about smiling.  It has been sitting in my brain since then, just waiting for it’s time to shine. {only I just realized that I had been remembering it wrong, but I like this version. 😉 }
  I took a canvas and mod podged the scrapbook paper to it.  Then I used chipboard alphabet stickers to write out the quote.  Then, I went to town.

Typically I leave things pretty simple, but this time I wanted to make sure it REALLY made me happy.  And it does!!

I found this quote in one of my sticker books.  It fit perfectly with the theme of the art piece.
Buddy- you are my hero.  And you  make me happy. 🙂
And something else that makes me happy?  Gwen’s mug rug.  How cute is this???
Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for all the details on the big giveaways!
Happy Thursday!
