Happy Days

IMG_2040

It's Saturday, my favorite day of the week! It's just so fun knowing that everybody else looks forward to this day, and that most special occasions occur on this first day of the weekend.

Hope you're all having a great one so far. We are currently with family that we've missed, and we'll be going to one of my favorite restaurants for dinner later so am super excited!

Mattie and Oliver are re-united with their cousins. In fact, it's Oli's first time meeting them. Four kids ages 7 weeks to 4 1/2 years under one roof is chaotic, but it's also a lot of fun! A happy day indeed!

For my card, I am showcasing Swiss Pixie Cupcake Brigitta. She is so much fun to color. But I think I got tired by the time I got to the cupcakes because there aren't much shading there, hehe!

And although it was hard to part with it, I thought the best paper would be this one from the Dear Lizzy Springtime line. Actually, it's fabric ...I just love the scene and texture of it. The items hanging from the branch give it such a happy, whimsical feel. Brigitta is having a grand ole time balancing her cupcakes (and herself on the branch).

Everything is from the DL line except the sentiment and scalloped trim cut-outs (from Echo Park's packaging -- upcycling again :)) and the brads.

See you soon and thanks so much for visiting!
