and we'll be Swingin'!!!

Hi Everyone!  
I hope this finds you doing okay or better yet, doing wonderful!  Remember that old country song with the words "and we'll be swingin"?  I love that song and use to love to Swing dance! LOL  Good memories.  Now for Penny's today we have Deacon Swingin'! Take a looksee-

Take a closer looksee at just Deacon-

A birthday swing!  He is a darling image from Bugaboo, our sponsor at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge this week.  Our theme for you is "red, white and black."  I wondered about this when I first saw our theme but really I had a lot of fun using these colors in the layout!  Give it a try and join us at Penny's this week!  We really love it when you stop by and enter your lovely artwork. Such talent out there, for sure.  While you are there at Penny's, or if you need a little red, white and black boost, come peek at my Teamie's creations- you will definitely be inspired!

See you around the Blog, my friends.  Stay well, warm and keep an eye out for those Bright Spots- you will end up better than OK!
