Go to your happy place

Hi everyone! I am back to Greece after having an amazing week at Disneyland Paris! I have tons of photos and I plan to do a daily “project life” album. Supplies are already here and I’ll share the process when I’ll finally sit down to do it.  But the summer isn’t over and the schools are still closed… that means one more month of holidays and we are all back to our summer house.  I LOVE SUMMER!!!!

So here is a summer scene card for all of you!

I used distress inks to create the background as well as to color everything. While creating the background I made a mistake or more like a “happy accident” {see the video) which made me create that little island to cover the mess. At the end I think it was a great addition to the card! Here is a closer look:

    Dear Vicky, hi! Yes, your card definitely looks like Greece in the summer!
    And the small island is not an accident at all, it is just where it should be… 🙂
    This card must be a dedication to the greek summer that we all love!
    Looking forward to seeing your daily “project life” album!

    Oh I really love it! I would not have even said you made a mistake because the little island looks like you planned it all along! I love how shiny the airplane is, did you also have some glitter in your clear embossing powder? Glad to see you back and that you had a good time!

  18. This is so adorable. The crafting studio that I’m a partner in is called My Happy Place so this is just prefect for me. I will have to put that stamp set on my wish list. TFS!
