YEP! my HAPPY place is with these 3 people...

I not a BIG fan of MY handwriting...  I TRULY admire all you ladies that have REALLY nice handwriting & it looks FANTASTIC on your end result.... BUT! for me I come to realize that to be happy with what I created I just don't like/want to do my hand writing on my creations...
SO! that said, I have added some handwriting but it's on the back of this layout....
saying things like I am at my happiest when we are at home just us 4, I love these moments & that I DO cherish these times. as I know that my 2 kids are get older & these times at home just the 4 of us will become fewer! 
I have used Twiddleybitz - Swirls & Destination word....
Purchased a couple of new stamps & just had to use them.... LOL
firstly is a  IndigoBlu Rubber Stamp - A6 - Bubbles Background Seriously love this stamp..
purchased it from The Scrapbook Store HERE...
& the other stamp or I should say stamps was the Prima Mixed Media - stitched circles, which after seeing a layout of Helen Tilbury's using these beauties I knew I had to get me some... lol
