Face Book Progress

I have added a few more pages to my little book. 
This page was really fun to me because  the big face showed up after I had started the little girl.  Part of Sharon's lesson is finding a face in a background you paint.  I liked this because it wasn't part of a plan.
I have to tell you I am hooked on dancing with the stars and in order for me to stay awake and not miss any of the competitions I usually work on a project.  I was inspired by the show to paint this one.
So here is the last one for the day and I know I want to add some words and a few more little details...

Thanks for stopping by...:)

Happiness

The sum of happiness is made up of a thousand details. A little kindness done one less fortunate gives the heart a beat of pleasure that no millinery or laces or jewels can possibly inspire.
To overcome prejudice is more satisfying than a ten-course dinner.
To subdue a difficulty and smother a selfish disire is to become strong and splendid.
If life is worth living at all, it is worth living in a state of progress and improvement.
If we moan and groan, filling the air with dissatisfaction and gloom, we can scarcely hope to partake of much contentment.
All you need is a good thump on the back by some cheerful soul who has faith in you, and promise to yourself that you will face your work and your worries cheerfully,-(Selected)
