Today is a gift

I recently picked up the new Here & Now collection kit from Echo Park and I couldn't wait to get started playing. I love the bright vibrant colors and all the patterns. I got out my spray mists the other day and here is what I came up with.

Today is a gift layout:

*tip: I cut a background stencil with my Silhouette Cameo and then used it as a mask with spray mist to get the fun hexagon background.

journaling reads "I love where I am in life right now. Over the past year I have gained new friends, new experiences, became more skilled in photography and improved my overall health. Life is fabulous."
