My approach to scrap booking starts by picking the photographs that I like to scrap book rather than picking the papers first and then seeing what images go with the tones of the papers.
I love these pics that we took in Greece. The Blues are so calming and reminds me of a very happy care free time in my life. And since I am really busy with work these days, I pretended I was on a happy little vacation while I made this page :-)
I also chose a happy title to go with my page from one of my favourite paper companies Lily Bee.
To add some colour and interest I added this Prima rub on with the pretty floral vine; the colour matched the red in the scarf I am wearing and adds some much needed embellishment to this side of the page. I then stamped a few butterflies from a tiny Prima stamp set:-)
The title is a Lily Bee rubon from the Catching Fall line, I happen to be a big fan of this typewriter font!
I also added a stamped saying, it's tiny and is under the photograph of me. it reads - 'this moment. this story. this day. this experience. this life' (by Ali Edwars- where all good quotes come from:-) he he)
The banner is by The Girls Paperie, they have a full sheet of banners that can be cut out! ( I have been dying to use a banner on my layouts and finally I got to do it:-) Yay!) the banner on the left has been popped up with some dimentional adhesive, the part that comes out from the top I left as is...
I think it adds the 'Happy' to my layout... along with the yellow splatters which I think are quite 'Happy' too:-)
