Jazz Fest NOLA

This month's I Lived kit (my Scraptastic kit choice for April) is one of the most colorful happy kits ever, so I had to use it to document one of the most colorful and happy events in my city. You might be thinking Mardi Gras, but nope, the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival is what immediately came to mind. 

I don't go every year, and this year will be a miss, but when I attend, it's a a feast for all the senses. Good food, great music, and joyful crowds everywhere. I had hoped to see Elton John this year, but we will be watching a certain son walk across the stage in Tuscaloosa on that day. Oh well! Here's what the crowd looked like at a recent fest, a menagerie of hats, flags, and umbrellas.

The grid on this Pebbles' Happy Day collection paper helped me to neatly arrange the elements of this page. Squares and rectangles cut from some of the other kit papers were overlaid with stickers, enamel dots, and die-cuts from the Simple Stories documented collection. A few squares were left without patterned paper and the embellishments applied directly to the page. 

What a happy, happy day!
