Life is always better with a smile

Hello to all you crafty ladies (and gents) out there

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter long weekend, I managed to squeeze in some crafty time in amongst working and family time.

Sharing a layout with you that has been an idea in my head for a few weeks. Something similar was shared within the Project Life Australia group and I knew I wanted to scrap lift part of it.

This is by far one of my favourites! I can't stop looking at it lol

Ive used cards and papers from the Kiwi Project Life Collection that can be found at Spotlight.

The Life is better card was the starting point for the layout, I knew this had to be one of the main cards used!

Originally I had planned on just using the cards and Kraft paper for the back ground, then I remembered the paper pack that I had to match the kit so I swooped on that and found the perfect piece.  
Ive layered the Hearts paper on top of the Kraft paper with a piece of vellum to dull down the colours.

I distressed the edges of the cards with some blunt scissors and stuck everything down with my favourite roller glue tape and a few tiny staples. Added a couple of enamel dots, veneer pieces and some letter stickers, then sewed around the edges and called it done!

This layout took me no longer than 30 minutes max! I love when it all comes together so easy.

Linking this up to the Life Paper Scrapbook April Mood board Challenge as it works perfect with the colours chosen for this month. Its been awhile since I shared anything within the LPS community, Im definitely missing being part of that fun team!!

Happy Scrapping!
