Everyday Happiness Layout

Capturing those small moments in life can be a challenge. My middle child Nicholas is a happy boy but he does not always express it with facial expressions because of his Autism.  So when we see those small  moments pop up, we take pictures even if it is an Target shopping cart. 
I like this layout because it is those everyday moments that build our lives and memories.  Scrapbooking for me isn't always about the perfect picture or the perfect moment or the huge trip or vacation.  For me Scrapbooking is capturing those moments in time that live in my heart. The cuts on this layout were all done with Spellbinders, but could be easily duplicated with Cricut or Cameo.  The sentiment is from Pink By Design. The paper is Echo Park Note to Self (love those arrows!) The "Smile" are tiles from the Bottle Cap Inc.  The "6" is from Maya Road. My arrows were "found".
I hope you enjoyed my layout.  I have been trying hard to post more layouts. Let me know what you think.  do you only scrapbook the big moments or do you try and work in "everyday happiness"?
Have a creative day!

Love your layout and all the energy on the page! I loved this Echo Park paper so much I bought more than one package! Love your idea with the larger arrows!

This is obviously a moment worthy of capture! I began as a scrapbooker, but have thrown in the towel, and migrated to cardmaking. Creating is decompression for me, but scrapbooking is full-on anxiety!

I completely understand how it is to get one of those smiles. Aren't those moments the best? I love the layout you've created and the picture is beautiful!
