Keep Smiling... The... Always Shines

Had  a rough week at work this week.  I made this for a friend and coworker who also had a rough one (probably because of  The "saying" is kind of an inside joke between us so I thought she could use a shadow box on her desk to make her smile when things are not going quite right.  I totally borrowed the idea from fellow paper crafter's blog and if you'd like to check it out she makes some gorgeous things.  You can find her here  I used mainly cardstock and ink.  The sun was embossed with my cuttlebug and the rays are from CTMH's Patterned Pennants stamp set.  I used the color ready seam binding ribbon.  I kept trying different ribbons in my stash and none seemed right... either too dainty or too heavy and then I saw this sitting there and remembered how versatile it is.   The best part was I got to make it while I Skype scrapped with my friend Donna back in NY and in just a few minutes I'm gonna Skype scrap again-my afternoon plans changed and I am finding myself with some time and what better way to fill it?  Remember to keep smiling!

This is really pretty. I can see it much better on your blog than I could during our Skype Session. I am sure your co-worker will love it!
