National Scrapbooking Month - Happy Times Blog Hop

Welcome to the National Scrapbooking Month - Happy Times Blog Hop!

If you came from visiting Haley Dyer, 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 features the National Scrapbooking Month exclusive paper packet Happy Times and the coordinating stamp set with the same name.  These fabulous items are only available during May 2016 and can be found online at my website by clicking here.

For today's project, I chose to explore the softer, more subtle side of the Happy Times paper packet.  But first, let me start by saying how much I love the designs and colors in this collection.  The mint color -- especially when paired with the beautiful pink color -- is simply divine!  And when you add in the gold foil, WOW!!  Amazing!

Supplies used:
*Happy Times paper packet
*12" x 12" White Daisy cardstock
*12" x 12" Whisper cardstock
*Pink enamel gems
*Stitch guide
*Foam mat
*Marvy Uchida LePen journaling pen

*White thread
*Dear Lizzy Serendipity royal gold foil word phrase Thickers
