Pursuit of Happiness

click to enlarge a busy sunset sky
"Some pursue happiness - others create it." Ralph Waldo Emerson
Pretty much sums up this sunset that got really busy, there were paragliders and birds all competing for the last breezes of the day.  For me any day on the beach is a happy day.
Click the link to Sky Watch Friday to see what other bloggers how found in their view of the sky to share this week.
 
Congratulations to Susan Brown on her 5 year blog anniversary, we are celebrating with a altered spoon project. 
This was a fun project, had the most amazing discovery after starting the golden honey with metallic ink and topcoating with Tattered Angels Rockin on Sunshine Glam, the paint lifted the metallic in the ink and it was a pool of glittering goodness swirling about.
Click the link to Susan's linky party for lots more fun spoon creations. I'd appreciate your votes :)
Think that bee theme inspired me for the weekend, sneak peek at our projects for the upcoming Mail Art workshop on My Creative Classroom.

Mandy - thanks so much for playing along with my first bloghop. I love your beautiful canvas assemblage and the "Life is Sweet" theme. You cleverly even have honey dripping from the spoons for the bees. The flowers are lovely, too - are they dried/pressed flowers? Your sunset photo is pretty spectacular, too - TFS. Sending many you big crafty hugs! Susan

Hi Mandy,

I love this photo. It is just stunning! And I agree, life is always better at the beach. I go for a month every year. It's where I decompress! Thanks so much for sharing.
