Hey there. Hope everyone is doing well. Honey's still typing my posts for me. I am beginning to feel a little less pain, but still not sitting. I did another treatment today and am to try sitting after a few days. My computer friend is coming over this weekend to help sort out whatever it was that I did, so I hope to slowly catch up with visiting your blogs, commenting and answering emails.
Today I have a 6x6 loose leaf art journal scene. The Paper Shelter's current challenge is to include a water element and since I've used one of their images, this one needed to be posted.
Here I'm showing printed out bare design that I created in PSE using digital elements from both The Paper Shelter and Polkadoodles.
And the finished piece after I did my freehand drawing and coloring of the background. Honey had asked me to make this a while back, which was when I created the digital portion of it. Bit by bit, I did most of the coloring. He has been such a support to me lately (and always), so I finished it up for him.
I was going to hang it as a home decor deco, but he ordered a frame and now it's hanging with his other golf-themed stuff in his man cave.😍 Most everything in the scene has a sentimental significance to Honey. That's him and his lifelong friend Danny, who passed in 2019. The butterfly is because Danny had a butterfly tattoo. They played golf together for decades and always brought plenty of drinks and snacks. And you might be thinking, seagulls? Well, down here on the Texas Gulf Coast, seagulls are a common sight even 5-10 miles inland, in big store parking lots (especially those with fast food drive-thru restaurants) and even out on the golf courses, scavenging for food.

And speaking of food, it's time to share some food for Rain's Thursday Art & Dinner Date. This week we tried using her recipe for Thin Crust Pizza and it was delicious topped with bacon, pepperoni, mushrooms and cheese. We had also made some vegetable soup and enjoyed pairing it with the pizza.
Then for this week's dessert, good old chocolate pie! The garnish on top is a mix of toasted coconut, dark chocolate shavings and chopped walnuts. I don't have a recipe link because Honey used his mom's. But it's very similar to this recipe.
Thanks for visiting! XOX
