here's to starting out the week on a positive note:

All of life is a journey;
which paths we take,
what we look back on,
and what we look forward to is up to us.
We determine our destination,
what kind of road we will take to get there,
and how happy we are when we get there.
-From A Little Book of Happiness

i stumbled upon a wonderful site...pugly pixel.  kartina, the owner of the site, shares her love for photography and digital art.  she is even gracious enough to share many fabulous FREEbies...you can also join her site and get "premium" access to her digital resources for just 5 bucks a month!  yeah...that's IT, 5 dollars! it's pretty unbelievable if you ask me...cause these images are F.U.N to play with!  :)
