Simple Stories: Happy Journey

Hello, Friends! Today I have a layout to share with you using the happy and cheerful Simple Stories So Happy Together collection.

For the title of this page, I fussy-cut the globe with the quote “Life is about the Journey” from the 6×8 paper pad.

I like this quote because my daughter had never taken a dance or tumbling class in her life, yet she was determined to try out for the cheerleading team at her school. I tried to prep her for the disappointment that would inevitably come, but to everyone’s surprise her hard work paired with her incredible team spirit and sparkling personality earned her a spot on the team! It was quite the journey with a happy ending. I was so proud of her for persevering and going for her dream.

I used the “Hello Love” woodgrain paper as the background for this page and added a scalloped border piece across the top cut from the “Our Story” paper.

I added the photos to several different layers of patterned paper and then added several Journal Bits & Pieces to the top to write the story about the day she received her uniform for the first time. I also used the 4×6 Clear Stamps to add a sentiment to the upper right corner of the journal blocks.

I used the 4×6 Clear Stamps again to stamp the phrase “life is beautiful” across the bottom of the globe.

I layered together several flowers, hearts, and the word “HAPPY” from the Bits & Pieces in the lower right corner of the photos. I also fussy-cut the wreath from the 4×4 Elements paper and tucked it behind the right edge of the photos.

I love that scrapbooking gives me the opportunity to celebrate all of life’s challenges, victories, and lessons. This page about my daughter achieving her goal will always serve as a reminder to *ME* to work hard for my dreams and goals, too, even when it seems impossible. I will always learn something along the way. Like the title for this page says, life is about the journey!
