This is a very cherry and uplifting composition. I just love the quotes and how you compose your pages. I look forward to "tuning in" to your blog each day to see what's new. I always find something to brighten my day.

I just love your lettering here. Where did you learn to letter this way with so much character and energy in the letter forms?

I love this Lori. Great choice of color (my favorite) I am into orange right now. It's such a happy color. The monolines are great and the pointed pen is ----FABULOUS---as always. Love the candle too and how you shaded it. It pops off the page.
