it makes me happy!

First and foremost, I want to say a big thank you to noel and the fabulous DT by allowing me to guest design this month.

I had so much fun playing with the Playdate kit and I thought the happy colors were just perfect to scrapbook this sweet birthday photo of my daughter, Harper.

Do you ever scrapbook photos just because they make you happy? No stress, no rules...no "catching up", just scrapbooking whatever catches your fancy?

Well I do. I often call myself a "fly by the seat of my pants" scrapbooker.

I chose this photo just because it makes my heart so happy I can hardly stand it. Simple, yes?

AND I KNEW by stephanie howell

i just love the gorgeous Pink Paislee rubon. it's so elegant and so...well, me! i have a thing for scrolls and damask.

i embellished it with red jewels:

and of COURSE i had to add a bow and some scallops.
a tiny touch i added was cutting a "4" from the JBS bingo card to signify the birthday harper was celebrating:

so there you have it.
my challenge to you this week? scrap a photo just because it makes your heart happy.

happy tuesday!
