Team-Up Thursday: Week Nine

happy dip

Tell me this does not make you laugh right at your computer screen. That's exactly what I did when Melody emailed me her photo for HAPPY this week. Just hysterical. I'm trying to figure out if she greased those lips with bacon to get the dog to hold them in there for the photo. I guess even dogs take bribes, eh?

Really, this pair makes me smile. HAPPY seemed so right for this first week of Spring. My kids happen to be on Spring Break this week, so they're really happy, as evidenced in my photo. Nothing happier than two kids and an amusement park ride.

In fact, this diptych may be one of my favorites to date, simply because it puts a smile on my face every time I look at it.

Another thing that puts a smile on my face? The fact that we are guest posting at Shutter Sisters tomorrow! How 'bout them apples? I know that all the new visitors will be so inspired by the wonderful diptychs in our Flickr pool, so go over and give a shout out in the comments tomorrow.

And as always, if you're new here, come join the fun every Thursday. Grab a partner, or email me at and we'll get you one.

Here's to one HAPPY Thursday!

Your diptych makes me happy this week too. I seemed to need a little bit of that, so thanks. :0) Melody and her dog kills me everytime. And your right, kids on a rollercoaster...what could make them happier? Even the guy in back looks happy!
