Summer Song...


I just wanna go on the record and say that I love For the Record, a super fab Echo Park Kit! I've never really played with Echo Park much before, but when I seen this kit a few months ago I just knew I had to have it. I recently pulled it out & have been super inspired by the variety of projects I can create with it! This LO features a few photos from last month when my niece & nephew came up to visit from San Antonio. My awesome mom-in-law & I took them to the pool & had a blast! They are just growing up so fast & I wish they would move back closer to us...we really miss them all lots. Anyway, these papers, embellies, letters & journaling spot were just perfect for this project. I'm already planning my next project with this kit in my head!


Supplies
All products from Echo Park's For the Record Kit except:
Distress Ink - Tim Holtz (walnut stain)
Black Tiny Type - Cosmo Cricket
Red Thickers - American Crafts
Navy Blue Cardstock - Creative Memories
Adhesive - Glue Glider Pro, Pop Dots, Aileen's Fast Grab Tacky Glue


This LO was also based on this fabulous sketch at PageMaps & I so love me some PageMaps! It is such an awesome resource for inspiration. Whenever I feel like I am stuck in crafty mojo rut, I just grab my sketch book & start flipping through. It never fails to give me just the right amount of motivation to get scrappin'! Once again I just wanna remind you that the Paper Issues "Sweet" link party is still going on through Sunday. All you have to is link up any project, old or new, that you think is sweet for a chance to be a featured artist! Visit the link HERE to check it all out. Well, I'm off to work on some more crafty goodness. If I don't see ya before then, make sure you check back Tuesday for my next Your Memories Here DT post...it's TEAriffic! LOL! Until then, Happy Craftin'!
