Happiness is a BIG Cocoa and a Silly Pic!

Happiness is a BIG Cocoa and a Silly Pic!  

So, who remembers those wonderful books from the '70's, "Happiness is..."?  I loved those especially if they involved the Peanuts characters.  When I saw this little chick with that huge cup of goodness and quote, it really took me back!  

Happiness is the new optional theme over at Path of Positivity!  Now, happiness can mean so many different things to people; what makes you happy?  Obviously, for many little girls, being silly is the greatest form of happiness!  What better way to show this than that fun digi, Mini Bird Take Out Coffee, from Limited Runs.

This is a page for my little grand-girl's inspiration book.  I'm taking ideas, words, and quotes and adding her pictures for a special book for her.  I started with this fun pic and altered it in PhotoScape.  I made it Bl/wh and then added a frame.  I printed and cut it out with decor edge scissors.  Using a little paint brush, I used CTMH ink to color parts of the photo.

This was a great way to use the photo I wanted, but change the colors to go with my layout!

The coffee cup cut is from CTMH Artistry with the sleeve cut from a tag from Polkadoodles as well as the heart.  The little bird is colored with Copic Markers and the cup is decorated with Liquid Pearls and Recollections Chunky Glitter pieces in Copper Brown.  The background is retired paper from CTMH.  I picked up the twine mesh one day at the $ store and found it to be a fun addition!
