My Happy

So... I didn't make the Pink Paislee team. First, I cried. Then, I cried some more. And then... I felt like a fool. Here and now, I promise never to cry again over a call. Life goes on.

Today, I would like to share this layout I made using the We R Family collection by Lily Bee. I've been dying to play with it.

I am so happy that Lily Bee has added wood veneers, badges, enamel hearts and dots and stamps to their collections. That made me swoon!

I cut the we are family strips and the chevron from 6x6 papers- Love the tiny patterns ♥

The Color Shine mist from Heidi Swapp in Coral was a perfect match here.

You can get your own We R Family collection in the Paper Issue shop. Use my code ALEX20 to get 20% off your entire order.

Edit: I am linking up this layout to the "Fill 'er Up" issue over at Paper Issues. These two kiddos fulfills me, make me happy.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm sorry you didn't make the PP team but it doesn't mean you aren't good enough because you are. Don't ever let making/not making a team determine your worth. You are amazing!!! This Lily Bee page is so pretty- and they are having a call right now, too!!

I have to say that I was truly shocked to find out you didn't make the team! I saw that you were thinking about applying and was hoping you would go through with it. Alex, you are one of the most talented scrapbookers out there right now! Everything you do is so innovative, inspiring, and a true work of art. I hope you won't let this get you down because I know without a doubt that you are going to do amazing things in the scrappy world!
