'Happiness....'


'...was when I was a child."


Hello girls! I was so pleased to be invited as a Guest Designer over on the blog 'Scrap Kafe International',
where they have a new challenge that's very interesting....
using white and the word 'happiness',
which really had me thinking about how to scrap these two elements.

For more details about this challenge please go here.

Here are a few close ups...


For me, my inspiration starting point is always the photograph I choose to scrap. From there I pull the theme, the colors and the mood I'm trying to create. I found this one in the box I keep handy of photos I've printed for my pages and for some reason it reminded me of growing up in Ontario.
Even though we lived in the city, I have so many memories of the outdoors...camping, hiking, the raw beauty of nature....and this photo reminded me of happy times as a kid playing in the snow :)

I found a challenge that asked what do we want most this winter?
And my answer is....snow!!! I would love to see everything sparkling white for a few days...
and my 9 year old boy has only seen snow a handful of times in his whole life!
I found it on a blog called 'Memuaris'.


For more details on this challenge, please go here.



I used a lot of watercolors and stamping in my background and then added some 
twigs and some moss from the craft store.



Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you feel some inspiration and reflect on some happiness in your life :)
