A Happy Place

Hey Chic Tags Fans! It's Mandy Koeppen here with my first blog post as a Chic Tags Designer. I'm so excited, nervous, and I hope I can inspire you today. I'm sharing a layout I created with an enlarged photo from my recent trip to California. Here in the land of frozen tundra aka Michigan there's snow, snow, and more snow so when I scrap photos from my trip it warms my soul and takes me to a Happy Place. The colors in the Chic Tags Happy Place line were a PERFECT match for my photos and scream California to me.  

I love enlarged photos and usually there's a great spot somewhere on the photo for my mix of title/journaling. I do this mix thing a lot instead of just a simple title then journaling block.  On this photo I could have put the title in a few different spot  but in the end I chose the left side.

Of course there has to be layers sometimes a lot and sometimes a little. This time it was lots. I mixed layers of pattern paper wonky cut, tags, and journal cards. "The Good Stuff" was fussy cut from a mini tag then I tucked the grid background under the layers on the right. I also fussy cut the triangles at the bottom right corner from the Crisp Air paper to point out the typed "this is the life".

Thank you for joining me on the blog today. I hope you have been inspired to grab those photos of a happy place next time you scrapbook!
