Get Happy!

>> Tuesday, June 12, 2012

The first few weeks of our summer vacation have been spent doing a variety of fun activities - a trip to the beach, backyard barbeques, crafty projects with the kids and movie nights. Throw in a few lazy mornings watching cartoons, s'mores around the campfire, and sunset viewing from the front porch and it's easy to see that so far, summer has been a pretty darn happy season.

It was that notion that led me to create the page I'm sharing today. It serves as a little reminder that these events shouldn't just be saved for summer vacation - every day is a great occasion to seek out happiness!

Layout by Lisa Dickinson for Lily Bee Design

The Handmade patterned papers add the bulk of the color on this page. The hexagon die-cut is backed with pieces from the Handmade paper, Patchwork. By placing them behind the white die-cut borders, they add a lot of punch without overwhelming the design. This is also a great use for some of those paper scraps!

The title is simple and bold, and clearly communicates the message of my page. It was also die-cut from white cardstock with the word "Happy" cut from the Handmade Sky Blue paper.

 I hope you're inspired to go do something that makes you happy today - and then scrap it, of course!
