KBD: Happiness Die-cutting layout

Who knew life could be this good?

There are so many things that make me happy in life. It always amazes me how sometimes it takes just one thing to fall into place, for happiness to overcome me. And when my children are happy - Mom is happy! I'm sure many of you feel that way as well!

The kids are back to school and with that comes a big transition in their daily routine...which is very hard for Madisyn. She hasn't been sleeping good, has a hard time in the mornings...and has generally been super grumpy each day. It makes me so sad!

This past weekend we went to my parents cabin and they had purchased a fun hot tub for the backyard. The kids were in heaven. All the worry left Madisyn's mind and she was back in summer fun mode and everyone was laughing and having a good time. I'm so thankful for my children! I'm so thankful for the hard times that help me to truly appreciate the good times!

For the month of September, the design team girls for Kerri Bradford Designs are focusing on 'Happiness' and what that word means to us. I used so many fabulous die-cuts from Kerri's kits on this layout.

Please don't ask me to stop using the hot pink color, Melon Mambo, from Stampin' Up! :) It is my fav! I also added some Blushing Bride (light pink), Pool Party (light blue) and Island Indigo (dark blue). Love these colors from Stampin' Up!

Lots of little stamping, sewing, scalloped strips, flowers, rhinestones and more. So fun! Thanks for looking!
