It's A Great Day to be Alive

It is a beautiful Sunday morning here in SOCAL and it is a great day to be alive, which brings me to this journal page I finished at the beginning of the week.  I've had a crazy-busy month and I took one evening to contemplate what to do with this page.....I had decided I didn't like what was originally on it and covered it with left over acrylic paint weeks ago.  I beefed up the background with some brighter colors, quickly drew in and colored the flower, then added the sentiment.
I saw this sentiment on Facebook, which had come from Pinetrest, I'm sure, and I really liked it....and it made me think of Travis Tritt's song "Its a Great Day to Be Alive".....and a journal page was born.
I have decided to link it up with the  Art Journal Journey......For the Record challenge.
Everyday is a great day to be alive, and the older I get the more I say that to myself....cause complaining isn't going to help make the day any better.....LOL!
I hope you join me in celebrating an other Great Day to be  Alive!!
