Some Scrappy-ness for Echo Park Fresh Faces Campaign

Around & Around He Goes
The top layout was super fun and pretty easy and I love how it turned out. I used the Walk in the Park paper collection for this as well. I used my 2" circle punch and punched four of my favoite pictures of Justin on the tire swing at the park. I then used a few of the different pattered papers that came with the kit. I also used the 1" heart punch and added them to some of the circles to add dimension. I used a few other supplies from my stash including American Craft cardstock letters and a few random buttons. The flower that you see was made from ribbon and glue dots and was super easy to do. The petals came from the sticker sheet included in the paper kit.
April Showers May Flowers
First of all let me start off by saying that I love this picture! This layout is part of my submission for the Echo Park Fresh Faces campaign. I used the same collection that I had on hand, The Walk in the Park Collection. I am still trying to get used to not having a scrapbook store close by. For this layout I used a Jillibean Soup corrugated letters and American Craft cardstock but the rest of the layout I used the Echo Park paper kit. I just love the banner sticker that came with this kit. I made two layouts and a card and I still have a ton left so you definetly get your money's worth. Anyway I hope you love this layout as much as I do! Thanks for stopping by!

Echo Park Fresh Faces

As promised I am posting the the projects that I have completed for the "fresh faces" design team call for Echo Park. This is a card that I created using "the walk in the park" collection. It was an easy card and I was able to complete it in about 15 minutes, give or take a few interruptions by a certain 2 year old. I used American Craft card stock and all of the paper and stickers were part of the Echo Park paper kit. The twine is from The Twinery. The letter stickers are from Sassafras.

I am working on some layout and card designs to submit to the Echo Park fresh face design team call. I will post the finished products just as soon as they are complete. If you are a traditional scrapper or if you are a digital scrapper you should check out their website as well as their blog for great product and design ideas. There newest line splash is so fun and will be great for scrapping all of your summer play dates or vacations. I will keep y'all posted on the outcome.

Look at that Face!

This little boy is growing by leaps and bounds. He most definitely has the terrible two's! I was not prepared for this at all. Justin did not go through this! Brady is into everything... I have been able to take a shower by using the bathroom in the boys bedroom and I would just lock the bedroom door and I would know that he was contained and safe. Well that is not the case anymore...the little bugger now knows how to unlock the door. He is not fun to take to the store to say the least. He cries the entire time if he is in the cart or the stroller because he wants to be free, problem is he does not walk. He has one speed and it is to run. All of these things make Brady who he is and I love him to pieces. I can't imagine what my life would feel like without him. Yes it may be a little more quiet but I will take the noise and chaos. Love you little boy!

More Studio Calico Kit-Layouts

This is such an old picture of Justin...from South Carolina, shortly after we moved there so he was just 3 turning 4 shortly. I loved his haircut in this picture and he was so blond. The title says "growing by leaps & bounds" This picture feels like just yesterday but he is 7 now!

More Layouts

These pictures are from Brady's 2nd Birthday, I again used a Studio Calico kit. (Still have no idea what month it was from)
This layout was made with a Studio Calico kit. I have no idea what month it was from because I have a large collection of kits which I have yet to touch. I love using them when I don't want to have to think. I can just grab a bag and my trimmer and be on my way. Nice and simple just the way I need things to be from time to time. Love this was maternity pictures that I had taken when I was prego with Brady.
