Happiness and Joy are found here.....

Happiness and Joy are found here.....

Yes you heard correctly. This little girl loves nothing better than exploring the world around her, with a bucket at the ready to collect everything and anything. This photo was taken whilst on holiday at my Mother in laws (Hi Barb), beachhouse during the Easter break a few years back . I  remember this bucket coming back to the house full to the brim with every treasure imaginable! 

This layout has been created using the new range of papers and chipboards from Blue Fern Studios now available at Bella Paperie.

I hope you enjoy!

I have fell head over heels in love with these new doily leaves. They of course they have been lovingly dyed by Deb in an arrangement of colours. I of course love the green!

I chose to use an arrangement of flowers from Green Tara and Petaloo.

And of course as always the all important chipboard!!  I have inked this particular one with distress inks and then covered them with a little or if you like a lot of dimensional magic. Makes the chipboard pop off the layout.

And of course no layout is not complete without a little resin. This clock resin is from Prima!

I used some random stamping using Rangers Archival ink Potting Soil! Great colour!

Addition of a little muslin never goes astray! Treated the chippie words with the same technique as mentioned above.

Another close-up

The Chipboard gates were simply given a coat of gesso and randomly inked.

Hope you have enjoyed your visit here. Please let me know what you think. Till next time, take care.
