Happy Day

I pulled out my Uplifting set along with some FABULOUS papers and embellishments from Crate Paper and Maya Road!

I paper pieced the balloons with Crate Paper papers. I LOVE how they turned out!!!

This photo is The Hubbums and I last summer-ish. It is outside of a wonderful little American Art museum down in Connecticut!

Happy Day (title)

The title was cut with Sally the Cricut using the Calligraphy Collection cartridge (say THAT three times fast! HA!). I love this cart! It has SO much versatility!!!!

Journaling Card on Happy Day

I used a Maya Road journaling card and punched the end to match the paper I had already punched and then added some Maya flower ribbon and a chipboard accent from the Crate Paper collection. I love it!

Happy Day (stamp detail)

A simple paper treat bag made the PERFECT background piece!
