Gratitude, The Source of Happiness

I wrote some context commentary that follows this page with yesterday’s post; Feel free to read about it here if you haven’t already!

I worked through Lamentations and Zephaniah all weekend, and I created some of my favorite pages this year with Tarama Arcilla’s new Print and Pray Shop set, Friends 4Ever.

I have also been reading through a book called Wellsprings: A Book of Spiritual Exercises by Anthony De Mello, and it has been wonderful!  It’s filled with beautiful prose and thought provoking questions!  It was fitting that today’s reading was about finding happiness in any situation just as Zephaniah and Jeremiah did in their suffering for Jerusalem.

12:12: Laughter & Happiness

Laughter and Happiness Scrapbook Layout using Paige Evans Pick Me UpI knew instantly that I wanted to use Paper 14 in Paige Evans Pick Me Up collection on this layout!  The beautiful ombre color blocks just felt perfect for my photos.  I began by running the page through my trimmer so that all the color blocks were separate.   I then aligned them on the page again folding up the edges, so that I could eventually sew at the crease.

All that was left was to rough up each edge with my scissors and fold the edges down in a random fashion.  I just loved the look of it when I was finished with my background.  I slathered on some white modeling paste where I wanted my photos to go and starting layering pretty things!
