Happy day...

Happy new year! I can't believe it's 2010. Time sure flies, doesn't it? Hope you had a safe New Year's Eve.

We had some friends over, had pizza, played Apples to Apples and some poker and Black Jack, then at 11:30 we watched New Year's Rockin Eve until the ball dropped! Did anyone else feel bad for Dick Clark? It made me so sad to see him that way.

Well, anyway... Friday (after sleeping in!) I finally felt like scrapping again and made this page just for fun. I felt like making something colorful. I took these photos on 9.9.09 of Taylor playing on the swingset. That day we had so much fun ~ Taylor, Kati and I....we made a dessert together, made PB&J sandwiches, and then took a picnic blanket outside on the grass and had a picnic and played on the swingset. Nice summer day. Oh how I long for summer again!!

I got this stamp set by Technique Tuesday and decided I wanted to keep the chipboard numbers at the top their natural color, but they needed a little something to dress them up. So I used the saying to stamp across them. (It's the same saying that is under the word "happy".)

The foam letters were white, but I really wanted yellow, so I painted them with acrylic paint. I think they are just some that I found at the Dollar Tree.

The Bakers' twine is my new favorite!! I purchased it from Studio Calico, and it comes in MANY colors. I couldn't resist. To make the hearts, I wrapped the twine around 3 of my fingers to form a circle and then stitched it onto my page to form a heart shape.

Background paper is Basic Grey, large chipboard letters are Random Alphabet by Rusty Pickle, pins are Fancy Pants. Feels good just to use up some of my stash.

Wishing YOU a happy day,
