Zoe and the Happy Planner Make me Happy!

I am absolutely in love with the Happy Planner by MAMBI! And with the release of the new Zoe papers and accessories it was like they were meant to be together. I had already decorated July and August in my planner so, I took a big jump to March 2016. I knew coming out of the cold and dull colors of winter my eyes would dance at the wonderful color palate of Zoe and really get me ready for Spring time. So yes, I am ahead of the game for blogging about March 2016, but my main reason is the washi tape that I used. In just 2 short days Boardwalk, the washi tape I used, will retire from CTMH and may not be available so I am hoping if you love the way I decorated March and you are thinking of using Zoe, or any other coordinating paper, with your Happy Planner that you will jump at the chance to pick up this washi tape before it is too late.

I keep thinking I will get on the YouTube "Plan with Me" band wagon but I haven't yet, so these pictures will have to suffice. If you would like to purchase the Zoe paper to create your own Happy Planner pages I would love for you to purchase from me.

 The Boardwalk Washi Tape has 2- 1/4" rolls and 1- 1" roll with different signs and sayings on it. I love how some are vertical and some are horizontal.
If you are trying to figure out where all of the stickers came from…they are the Zoe Complements offered by CTMH. It comes with 2 - (6"x 6") adhesive backed card stock grade stickers and kraft card stock die cuts and vellum die cuts. All for only $5.95! A quick and easy way to complete your Happy Planner pages.

National Dog Day

I guess I missed National Dog Day yesterday. I really adore my dog. She is my first child and has put up with us for 14 years. And I loved seeing all of the pictures on social media yesterday of everyone's furry family member. One of the reasons I wanted to purchase the new Artistry Cricut Cartridge from CTMH was the Dachshund image. They have other dog images too, but I cannot believe sometimes how many of my friends have a Dachshund and I knew I would love to create a card for them featuring their four-legged friend. I also wanted to remind you of the Stamp of the Month for August that will only be available for 4 more days so don't forget to purchase yours.

I am loving the Zoe paper that Close to My Heart introduced in August.
