I love collections that have amazing colors and that are super versatile and easy to use for every occasion or theme. The My Happy Place collection is like that for sure and I love the amazing color scheme. I decided to go with a layout this week and to scrap an old picture on which I had friends over at my house.

For this layout I wanted to use a maximum of all the patterned papers. An easy way to do that is to choose one of your punches and to punch out shapes from every paper. Here, I used a 1 inch and 1 1/2 inch square punch. I cut some of them in four, to have mini squares too. 

I wanted to place the squares a bit randomly on the page and to integrate the photo later. So I placed my squares on the layout, starting with the big ones, after distressing the edges and corners of each square. Then I placed the smaller ones, also layering them on the bigger ones. 

When I had everything placed on my background, I chose a place for the photo and matted it with some scraps of paper before adhering it to the layout with foam tape. 

I went through all the embellishments and chose enamel dots and enamel shapes, fussy-cut flowers and some mini Doodle Pops to decorate the squares and the page.

For my title, I chose one of the Chit & Chat word die cuts saying: "This is us" and I also cut out the letters "Home sweet Home" from a banner. To finish I splattered gold paint.

I hope you enjoyed the process and are excited to use this collection too...:)
