Damask Divas' Happy Times Blog Hop

Welcome to the Damask Divas' Happy Times Blog Hop!

The Damask Divas' team is excited to inspire you with fabulous projects from this beautiful collection!  If you came from visiting {Jenifer Benner}, then you are in the right place.  You can see the full hop line-up over on the {Damask Divas' blog}.

This hop highlights the fabulous new Happy Times paper packet which Close to My Heart released in honor of National Scrapbooking Month.  This paper packet features a gorgeous color combination of Canary, Fern, Pink, Magenta, and Mint along with beautiful gold foil -- and it also has a coordinating stamp set!

 For today's layout, I used a sketch from Scrapbook Generation.  I love using sketches with my projects!  When I saw the awesome floral-like border across the top of the sketch, I knew it would be perfect for the Happy Times paper packet, and boy, was I right!  I just love how my layout turned out.  It is one of my most favorite layouts I've completed in a while... and that's saying something because I loved some of my more recent layouts featuring the now-retired Regatta collection.  But anyways, I digress.  I'll stop rambling now, and let you check out my project.
