Happiness is…

I’ve joined a group called Designer Crafts Blog Connection which does a craft blog hop on the 1st Monday of each month.  I was very excited to find out this month’s theme was “Happiness is…”


While creating in general makes me happy, making something meaningful and uplifting makes me the happiest!  So, for the challenge I decide to finish a scrapbook layout I started a few months ago.

I started this page with the idea of creating a simple photographic memento for my husband.  Then I realized that one day my boys would acquire it so I decided to add a meaningful message.

To me happiness is…following your dreams and living life to the fullest!


Here are the supplies I used for this project:

“Fair Skies” hot air balloon Stamps by Farm House Paper Company

“Where Ideas Take Root” wood grain paper by Farm House Paper Company

Sasparilla “High Noon” alphabet paper by October Afternoon

Picadilly “Lemongrove Avenue” by Basic Grey
