Happy ! Happy !

 I have another layout created for the July ODBD Let Your Light Shine Scrapbook Challenge - 
create a layout of any size using at least one circle, ODBD stamps, and your favorite color or a color in your photo(s). 

Scrapping , crafting certainly has been helping my left ankle heal 
( faster too I dare say ! Lol ! ) 
 I thought I could do this layout at my Sat crop with Ms Piradee
I wanted to try out the big circle Crafters' Workshop template which she has . 
Fortunately, Piradee already had an extra cardstock misted up using the template .
At first, I thought I could use it with WP's Celebrate papers but after pushing paper around , I declared it was not to be . True enough , this layout can together quite easily with the BG Lauderdale pps the next day . ;) 

I spent the rest of  my crop time happily making cards 
with my new Cottage Cutz dies ,
trying them out on the Big Shot machine and discovering new stamp brands to love. 
Happy cropping times indeed ! 
& oh ! I brought along some homemade 
( not made by me but a dear church friend ) 
Buttermilk Chocolate Cupcakes with vanilla buttercream 
/ rashberry jam buttercream frosting. 
Just perfect timing everything was ! ;) 

Gotta love that orange Studio Calico mist , huh ? Just yummy ! 
I could get converted to using SC's Mister Huey's after this ,  now I understand . 

I used this Friends ODBD stamp for the journalling on misted cardstock ,
with the small circles CW template . 
( Alas , I was happily enabled after a quick visit to the LSS after the crop ! 
We were within walking distance . Too easy . ;) ) 
I'm sure I would be doing this more often - stamped journalling on paper ribbon strips . 
Really liked how it turned out . 
I masked off parts of the stamp that I didn't want to be stamped out using magic tape - a good way to divide up a bigger stamp I have now discovered . 
Lots of different circular elements I tried out on this layout too while I was well inspired by circles   - silver & gold bling , MR Kraft Doily cut up , Prima Rajah centers . 

Love the happy colors & prints of the BG Lauderdale for sure . 

In fact , now I know what other paper line I should go for post CHA Summer - 

Echo Park Paper's Happy Days - 

My kidlets do not love the vintage "old"  vibe at all - even if they are pretty. 
So it's young , bright  , bold & vibrant stuff for now . 
I can't finish up all my older or newer vintage , shabby chic lines
 so I will happily continue to use those .
