What is happiness? I don’t think we ever arrive at a point in life where we say…this is happiness. Nothing is ever perfect or if it seems to be, well, it’s not for long. There are so many distractions in life.

I think that happiness is found in the little things. It’s found in being grateful. It’s found in the peace of knowing that you’re doing the right thing even when it’s hard. It’s found in a selfless attitude. In helping others. In a heart of praise.

Today’s project is a layout about my youngest. He makes me happy. He is exuberant and it makes me smile.

I’m excited about this layout as it uses a new technique I dreamed up and finally found the time to test it out.  It worked just like a thought it would first try. Love that!

What is it? Well chevrons are so popular these days but they can be difficult to cut out without a template. I decided it would be fun to come up with a folded chevron technique that uses a 2″x12″ strip of paper. The folded edges look so pretty and the cuts and folds were super easy to do.

Today I’m on the Lily Bee Blog sharing this layout and more details. I hope you’ll join me here.

I’m also hoping to work on a new video tutorial for you today sharing how I made these chevrons. Stay tuned as I hope to be back tomorrow with it. Fingers crossed!

Edited to add: Video Tutorial can now be found here.


Have a happy, happy day!
