Here’s my Hello Happiness Layout. I started by looking at the fun circle pattern on Payton’s swimsuit. I really like all the cirlces! So, I gathered some pretty blues, pink, and yellow Basics papers. Using a punch (about 1.5″), I punched out a bunch of circles and even cut some of them in half to create a fun pattern. I machine stitched around them and added a bit of handwritten journaling.
I added sparkly Candy Dots and Buttons throughout my LO. A “hello” sentiment sticker along with pretty blue Foam Thickers for my title.
I used an orange Clothespin to gather and hold together my layers of Pattern Papers and Washi Tape.
