Happy Everything Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Happy Everything Blog Hop!

If you came from visiting Terrie Shortsleeve, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon my little corner of the blog world, simply start here and continue hopping until you return here -- our fun hop is one big loop for your viewing pleasure. 

This hop's featured stamp set is the Operation Smile set for the Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog called Happy Everything (pictured below).  This set is only available until August 31st.

When I saw this stamp set in the Seasonal Expressions 2 catalog, I knew I had to have it!  It is my favorite from this idea book and BONUS -- it is the Operation Smile set, too.  This set is simply wonderful and so versatile for both cardmaking and scrapbooking!

For today's hop, I decided to share BOTH a layout AND a card.  You get two-for-one with me today!  Like I said this set is my SE2 fav and I couldn't resist creating multiple projects.


First up, the scrapbook layout...
