Happy Thoughts for The Paper Players #48

Another week to play with The Paper Players! I flipped the design to be able to play around with this cute stamp set from the Summer Mini Catalog. I fell in love with this stamp set the first time I saw it. Since I love color, this is a perfect set to color with watercolor, re inkers, pastels or markers (as I did).

I created the background with the fresh look of the flip flops and the water effect was given with Crystal Effects. And I loved the idea of using the "happy thoughts" sentiment, as kids always have happy thoughts so we can have happy days more often. Sometimes as adults we forget how happy we were when we were kids, carefree and without responsibilities. Well, at least without the same responsibilities we have as adults, and which make us forget how to be happy and grateful for the simplest things around us.

Hope you enjoy my creation today and have a happy day! Enjoy and God bless you all!
