I remember this day clearly like it was yesterday. My son had just started smiling a couple of weeks prior and I wanted to capture it on camera. I got his attention and then made him smile. The smile turned into a big cheesy grin! It was so exciting and you can be sure there were lots of hugs and kisses afterwards. Heehee.
At the top of the right side of the layout, I used one of the speech bubbles from Hello. On the second line, I created another custom phrase 'Happy Boy' by using happy from 'And Be Happy', the b from 'Beyond Measure', the o from 'Oh Yes You Are!' and the y from 'And Be Happy'. All of this was easily done using washi tape to mask off portions of the stamps just like I demonstrated in one of my video tutorials. I used the same technique to create the layout title of 'So Happy', again using the words 'Happiness, Sunshine, Joy' from So Breezy. Finally, the 'Oh. Em. Gee' acronym, which I absolutely had to use, is from Good Times.
