Technique Tuesday: Happyville Collection

Happy Monday, friends! I had such an awesome Mother's Day. It's so nice to be spoiled. But I did miss spending it with my mom, who is in China right now. She really is my hero. She is brave and true. Plus she's an amazing cook! Win-win.

My dad took this photo of us last November, at my brother's wedding in San Francisco. Please ignore my gross wrinkly hands. 

So back to my regular routine!

My dear friend Teri Anderson designed the adorable Happyville Collection for Technique Tuesday. It's 7 sets that can be mixed and matched to your heart's content.

I created this layout here about my love of traveling, and a bigger love for coming home. You know how they say distance makes the heart grow fonder? True! Distance, and my super comfy bed. For this layout, I used the airplane and a sentiment from the Travel set and a few words off the Home set. It's hard to tell in the pic, but the airplane and the little lines behind them are stamped in gold. The lines are from the (super useful!) In Stitches set. The patterned paper is super old Basic Grey. I've been hoarding and (yay) finally used it. I'm kinda wishing I had more of it.

Thank you for coming by today. Don't hold me to it. But I might venture and do a Project Life post this week...

Love it! I'm pinning it to remind myself about how I like the text between the two photos.

The gold almost looks like wood veneer! Very cool :)
