Smile and say cheeeeese...

Smile... it's Monday!!  LOL!  Well, it's certainly not my favorite day, but I'm going to try to make the most of it.  How 'bout you?

I worked up this wonderful Teddy Bo image for my grandson, Jackson's birthday.  I sure hope he likes it.  I just love these papers.  They work so great for boys (and men).  I so wanted to use the word 'smile' on this card, but I had a heck of a time finding the font I wanted.  My printer's still not working so I had to figure something else out.  I ended up finding these 3-D letters at Hobby Lobby.  They are really too big and kinda overwhelm the card, but I don't think it's too bad.  It did take me quite a while to cute out those silly word mats!!  Now don't look too closely... I had to 'piece' a couple of the letters.  {smile}
