Anything Better than Happy Happenings

Anything Better than Happy Happenings

It’s been an amazing week of happy happenings in our home over Spring break.

Could there be anything better? I don’t think so.

We’ve rested.

We’ve been together.

My list could go on about the happy happenings but I think you get the gist of it.

Our week ended on a fantastic note of course- Easter.  I must say that was the most special day of all, despite Alexis and I catching colds.  Yes.  Sick again!

The teenagers have managed to keep me going this week despite the gloomy weather and the time spent with them was needed by me.  Mall trips, beach trips, watching movies.  It was busy but I loved having them home and near me.  There have been many times I’ve looked forward to a school break being over and the kids getting back into their routines but this time I am not.  I wish the break was longer.  It’s made me reflect on how quickly they are growing up and them wanting to do more things with their friends- not mom.


It’s good.

It’s part of life.

It’s going to happen.

But I don’t like it.  I had to shout that.


Monday means back to the routine.  Mom back to the office to create…. and do taxes.  Kids back to school.  Russ back to work.  Back to all of THAT.  Sigh…. I guess it’s time for me to adult again.  Pffft.  It’s time.



Happy Happenings

Funny how the stamp set I used coincides with my happenings- it’s happy!!

Happy Happenings, Stampin' Up!


I created this last week prior to the kids going on Spring break and I needed a congrats card.  Happy Happenings has some awesome greetings and came in handy for this card.

Tips & Tricks

A fun trick for this card was creating dimension with my star punches.

To create more dimension,  punch out 3 stars from each color.  Glue the stars together using  Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Once they are dry  sponge around each star with the coordinating color.

This will make the punches thicker and stand out a little more.

One last tip- the metal stars that you see on this card came from the So Lovely Project Kit.  You can see a quick link to this product below.  I LOVE this kit for the cards that you can create and the embellishments are amazing.

The Schoolhouse Designer Paper is bright and playful for cards and scrapbooking.

Lastly…. did you notice I snuck in a little bit of Cucumber Crush cardstock? It’s growing on me.  It’s going to be a great color for Summer cards and Project Life.

You can see all of the products I used for this card below.
