Happy House Mouse Monday to ya!  

Our challenge this week is this awesome sketch:

HM Challenge No. 29

HM Challenge No. 29

I really had fun with this layout using Basic Grey Bittersweet  DP.   The Happy Hopper stamp is appropriately called Chocolate Decadence…I can so relate to how he must feel!!   Chocolate definitely makes me happy!   🙂   This stamp, as well and LOTs of other HM images are available at 7 Kids College Fund. 

Isn't Life Sweet?!!
