Happy Wishes and Rainbows

Just a happy little card using the Oh So Happy papers and embellishments. I believe the rainbow was actually from the cut above page in the Crafting with Heart subscription. I did not want to incorporate it in the page as instructed, but did not want it to be forgotten! I repurposed it on a greeting card that will undoubtedly brighten someone's day!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope this card brightened your day!

No More Teens!

Back in early March a thought came into my mind as I was working. The following day would be my daughter's birthday. My youngest child was turning 20! I no longer have young children, no more teenagers, my kids aren't kids anymore! I'll remind you that I work at an elementary school and as I had these thoughts I happened to be working with a kindergarten student. Where did the time go? I suppose I know the answer, but how does it happen so fast?

Moments like this make me grateful that I kept scrapbooks throughout all the years. I can fondly look back at all the memories and see how much everyone has changed. I certainly don't want to stop preserving the memories as new moments are on the horizon. I look forward to the new adventures!

My now 20 year old daughter seeks her own adventures as well! Away at college we were not able to spend the day with her, but she made the most of it with a close friend taking photo's to capture the milestone. I printed the pictures she sent me and created some beautiful pages of my beautiful daughter on her special day!

This single page was inspired by a couple of similar designs on Instagram and the Internet. I knew that I had to incorporate a rounded floral design and the bold "Beautiful" title from the So Much Happy collection!

Here is the page with the photo's added. These were my two favorite pics.

I chose to print these in black and white so they did not distract from the pretty colors of the page. I added in some more chipboard and sticker flowers from the complements.

Here is the complimenting page with some more photos from the day. These I left in color as the location has such gorgeous scenery!

The So Much Happy paper collection and coordinating embellishments will be available until the end of this month.

Be sure to preserve those magical milestones. The precious moments in our lives are fleeting fast!
