I could give nearly every layout of Allison the title "Happy".  She is seriously almost always as happy as can be.  She is truly a delight!

Happy: This is another layout created with the Scrapbook Daisies gorgeous "Happy Together" kit.  Everything here is from the kit with the exception of the Prima leaves and white flower.  By the way, this is my sample for the Scrapbook Daisies October PageMaps sketch challenge.  Get your entries linked to the message board... there's a free kit waiting for the October challenges winner!

Scrapbook Daisies October Reveal!

YAY it's reveal time at Scrapbook Daisies kit club! I had the great pleasure of designing with the "Happy Together" kit this month, and Wow Wow WOW!!! I LOVE THIS GORGEOUS KIT! All of the colors are soooooo very pretty, and oooooooooh those fabulous flowers and trims! YUMMY! This kit is so beautiful and is so perfectly coordinated that it practically scrapped itself!

Life is Good: This photo of Allison and me was taken a couple weeks ago. I'm usually the one behind the camera, so I'm really happy to have this photo of us. This is my take on Creative Scrappers sketch #125. Everything here is from the kit except for the velvet Prima leaves.

Moments: Love this photo of Allison peacefully sleeping on her daddy's chest! Everything here is from the kit except for the velvet Prima leaves. I cut apart the Zva bling so that I could spread it out further on my page. The 3 flowers were made with daisy punches, and the scallops along the outside edge of the big circle were made with a 1-inch circle punch.

Pretty Blue Eyes: I already previously scrapped this photo but I love it so much that I wanted to scrap it again LOL. I colorized the photo using photoshop so that only Allison's and Daddy's eyes remain colored. In person it looks really sweet because their eyes are identical in color. I used my hot glue gun to adhere those tear-shaped crystals to the page. The middle flower of the three was made by twisting one of the ribbons from the kit into the shape of a flower and hot gluing it together. I added the velvet Prima leaves from my stash, and the white flower and the small blue alpha stickers are from last month's kit

Happy: For now, I can share the above little sneak peek. I'll be revealing this layout on the 20th with the presentation of the Scrapbook Daisies October PageMaps sketch challenge :)

A Little Bird Told Me: I love to put together quick cute cards with my kit leftovers. I am loving kraft cardstock for cards so I have plenty of it in my stash. Once again I used my hot glue gun to adhere that crystal to the bird's wing... it's just a little detail but it adds nice interest. Those alpha stickers are leftovers from last month's kit... aren't they perfect for this kit too?

Lastly, a cute little all-occasion card. We can never have too many of those in our stashes! In fact, I'll be making a few more soon with the rest of the kit leftovers.

This gorgeous kit was WONDERFUL to work with. I cannot say it enough... Martha puts together fantastic kits! :)  Check out the Scrapbook Daisies message board to see what the rest of the design team created!  While you're there, get all the info on the October design team challenges and the October sketch challenges...  WHAT are you WAITING FOR?!  There's a FREE FABULOUS KIT ready to be shipped to the October challenges winner!!!
