Time to be Happy Again

Welcome to another Unity Blog Hop.  Can you believe I created another layout?!  I hope this is the start of many more.  I used the Dear Lizzy Serendipity collection.  Love the mix of colors and patterns in this collection.  It also felt good to add a bunch of my favorite techniques to this layout - stitching, stamping, fussy and die cutting.  I used a few different stamp sets the You can do Anything (SMAK kit - love the coffee stain stamps);  Becoming Who I Am; Time to be Happy Again (both are LOL) and finally the Small Things Matter Most (KOM).  The main title is a Kerri Bradford cut file and the butterfly is from My Favorite Things.


I fussy cut the large flowers and the letter G from some of the pattern paper.  The G is mounted on foam squares (Scrapbook Adhesives) and I like how it is for Grandma and also looks like an arrow pointing to the main sentiment.

Lots of layers, stitching, die cutting and staples...

I even snuck on some washi tape...

Now be sure to hop along and leave comments for your chance at a prize!

Such a sweet photo of the three of you. Your grandbaby is precious. I really like the layout you created to show off that picture. Lots of signature Laurel layers. You may not have a lot of time to create, but you use the time you have extremely well. :)
