What Makes You Happy?

This week I went to visit Allyson of the Color Queen Salon in Honolulu.  I brought her a hand stamped notepad that I stamped with the message "do more of what makes you happy".  I chose this stamp for Allyson because she is someone who lives out this message as she daily shares her gifts and talents with all her clients.   I have never seen anyone leave her salon that wasn't beaming with happiness over how amazing Allyson made them look and feel!

To create this gift, I used our new Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper and coordinating Botanical Builder Framelet Dies.  I chose the colors for the layered flower by pulling colors that coordinated with the Designer Paper.  I love it that Stampin' Up! offers a wide variety of color coordinated products!

Here is Allyson with her note pad gift.  I had to smile when I saw how perfectly the colors I choose coordinated with her "hello honey" glasses.  Allyson is really wonderful, I just love her to pieces.  She is gifted with the ability to really listen to you, offer expert consultation and then produce amazing results.  I was a very happy camper when I left her salon.  I love the cut, love the color and have received many compliments which made me happy!

I LOVE the Color Queen

So, What Makes You Happy?  I hope that no matter how you answer that question you will take time today to invest in doing just that and then help others you encounter to do the same.  I think if more people invested time in doing things that made them happy then the world would be a brighter, happier place.
