Happiness is right here..

Hi everyone, here to share a really new layout.. I made it last night. Been experimenting with my photography, trying to find my perfect settings, but still far from it.. So please excuse the bad quality:-)

Today's layout features a lot of embellishing and a basically playing with patterns. I used mostly American Crafts on this page, with a tinsy bit of Fancy Pants and Crate paper..

I love having a lot of white on my layouts.. They let the eyes rest on the important bits, without getting all confused. I went for a colourful embellishments to compensate for the lack of colour in my photographs.. I think it balances out the page quite well and stops it from being boring.

My focus points were the chipboard frame and the banner, I really wanted to add a banner cos the photo strip was quite wide and the banner would brake it down a bit. Everything else was pretty much spur of the moment embellishing:-)

I used some Dear Lizzy (buttery yellow) "bee" paper to add a fun whimsical touch. I have had that paper for quite some time, and it was a relief I found the perfect place to use it. The banner was made of Fabric paper, and it adds some nice texture to the layout. I also added a chipboard heart on the banner, just for a shot of cuteness!

And lastly the title was added with some Crate Paper wood grain alphas, some American Crafts Amy Tangerine Thickers and some older Pink Paislee alpha stickers.

  1. I really wish I could scrapbook - but sadly it's something I think I'll never be able to do - so I just appreciate others' work from afar, and yours is fantastic! I love all of the elements you've used including the different coloured 'a' in 'happiness' and the butterflies. Just fantastic :)

  2. Wow, beautiful. Your elements and the white space perfectly compliment your photos.

  3. So many wonderful, little details, Michelle! Just love this beautiful layout!

  4. That's such a beautiful lay out Michelle! Love the embellishments, I am really bad at knowing what to add to pages I make, which are very rare!

  5. Oh, my! This is pure sweetness! What a very gorgeous layout, love the background features and your happy photos really bring this together so beautifully!
