happiness is...


Who's That Girl is live with another challenge for you! The "who" in my page is my mother-in-law. I took this picture of her and Nate on Easter, and when I saw the prompt for this challenge, I just knew it was meant for this picture.

Happiness to my MIL is definitely time spent with her only grandson. My husband is an only child, and we're all set having kids, so Nate is most definitely spoiled! And he knows it, too.


Who's That Girl would love to know what your Happiness Is... You can be funny, serious or all out crazy about how you illustrate this concept. Any way you choose to tackle it, we want to see it! Make sure to link up your creation in the comments section at Who's That Girl so we can see what you make and leave you some love!


My tip to share with you about this page is in making the flower. I used Webster's Pages Bloomers. I cut off only one bloom and some of what is off to the side of it. I tucked the side pieces under and affixed the glue dots to hold it together and also to hold it to the page.

Then... and here's the neat trick... I trimmed it. It was kind of wild and deep, so I just cut some of the bloom off of it. It shaped pretty well and allowed for the chipboard circle piece I put in the middle to show better. Try that next time you are working with the floral ribbon like this.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! And I hope to see you over at Who's That Girl!!!


Supplies: Cosmo Cricket (pp, chipboard, stickers), K&Co. (letters), Webster's Pages (bloomers), Jillibean Soup (journal spots)
