Just in case you should need reminding...

Laughter is good for you!  I thought this was a good reminder to have on the wall and to try to remember to see the brighter side of things. ... cup half full rather than cup half empty!  So this is my third piece as guest designer for Stampotique



I stamped Laugh on a piece of scrapbook paper and added more shrink plastic versions that I edged with gold leaving pen (something I used to do a lot and had forgotten about!). Smile with his wicked grin was an obvious choice and I mounted the whole thing in a recessed frame.  You can find a tutorial here.
