IF - your paradise


My paradise is made up of the simple things in life that make me happy. I couldn't fit all of my favorite things on an illo, so I chose just a few to illustrate IF's theme of the week. I decided to use beachy tropical colors to give it a more traditional paradise feel. Sometimes it's easy to forget about the great little things that make up our everyday lives. When I saw the challenge for this week, I sat down and made a list and it was a good exercise for me, so I appreciate life's simple pleasures. What simple things make you happy? Make a list, choose to be happy!

yum yum yum what a nice illo :)
I also like big cookies... the gooey ones that fall apart in the middle... now I must go buy one =/

I guess my paradise would be entirely made of cookie dough. Now that's an interesting idea for my attempt... *contemplates*
