Kelly's Happy Blog Hop

Hi!

Wow, two posts in one day! Both are very special though. This evening's post is a fun Blog Hop that I am participating in that celebrated the 5 year Stampiversary of my friend and JAI team member, Kelly Kent. If you've ever met Kelly, you'd know that shy and quiet aren't words to describe her, so it comes as no surprise that she's celebrating with a big bang!


The theme of today's Blog Hop is simply, happy. You have probably come from Jacqui's blog, where you're bound to have seen something amazing. If you're starting here at my blog, that's entirely fine. Just keep on hopping until you get back to where you started!

I decided to make a layout for the blog hop. It's been a little while since I've scrapped, so I was feeling a little rusty, but it was very enjoyable to spend a few hours on this page.


I've used the new In Colour Tranquil Tide as the base of my layout. Unfortunately I haven't been able to photograph it well, as it is actually a lot more similar in colour to the T2 Melbourne Breakfast label I have used on my page. Speaking of which, do you ever use 'found' objects like this on your layouts? I sometimes do, but never with precious photos, as I can never be sure that they are photo safe.


I journaled directly onto my layout using a PL marker, as I didn't want another big block of white on the page. I used the thicker, 0.5, marker so that the writing was a bit easier to read against the dark background


I love this title! A quick Google search for 'tea quotes' gave me these words. There are heaps of tea related quotes out there, but not many that also include the word happy. Luckily, this one was perfect for me!
 
I hope you've enjoyed my 'happy' page, as I had a lot of fun making it. And before you ask, yes, I was sipping tea from my cup as I scrapped the photo. As a matter of fact, I'm sipping from it now, as I type this post. No doubt I'll also be sipping tea from it as I do the Blog Hop when it goes live!
 
It's now time for you to hop along to the next blog, which just happens to be my friend, Kathryn. Before you go, I'd love for you to leave a comment and let me know what you thought about my layout. I'd love to know!

If there's a broken link, just head back to Kelly's blog. She will have a list of the blogs, so you can find where you were up to and keep going - it will definitely be worth it!
 
Bye for now,
 
Tina
