I had so much fun creating my first layout with the new My Happy Place collection! The colors are so cute and I love the added interest with the mini polka dots. I decided to scrap a photo of my cat.

For my background, I used three different patterned papers. The one with the scalloped border is called Garden party. I cut out the middle part of the paper and a 3mm border around it. Then I backed it with a red and a yellow patterned paper, which are called Hello Sunshine and The Neighborhood. 

The cat is a Doodlebug cutfile called Happy Cats and is from the Happy Haunting collection.  I cut it out from Doodlebug cardstock, put a bit of color around the edges with my Distress Oxides and put the pieces together. Then I added some details with my white acrylic pen. 

I backed my photo with some papers from the 6x6 paper pad. To back my photos, I always use 4 or 5 random rectangles of patterned paper that I rip off using a ruler. Then I put them behind the photo in a way that you can see each color peaking out around the photo.

I placed my cut file cat and my photo on the background and then started embellishing. I used a lot of flowers from the Bits & Pieces pack on the cat and put enamel dots in the centers of the flowers. I used a die cut piece from the Chit Chat pack for my title and backed it with a rainbow striped patterned paper.  

I also used a little Doodle Pop house next to my cat and finished the title with alpha stickers. 

To finish the layout, I added some white paint around the cat.  I really love this collection. The colors are totally my thing!  Hope you like the process and see you back soon! :)
