Want some more??

We had a busy busy weekend--we spent Saturday building a new deck. It's looking so nice, even though we've run into a few problems, which would be par for the course for us! We can't do any home improvement projects without running into more than a couple of those! :) I can't wait to get it all done and stained this week and set up our patio furniture.

Logan's birthday is coming up in a couple week and we're busy making invitations, getting decorations, and planning a sports party for him. We even rented a cotton candy machine--that's the part I'm excited about! haha Lets see just how fat Kandis can get in one day! ;)

So do  you want to see some more cards made with the new Echo lines?

Here's one made with Victoria Gardens:

Happy Days:

and lastly... Apothecary Emporium:

They are such fun lines I can't stop playing with them! I should have some layouts ready to post in the next day or two! :)

Some BIG news....

I'm giddy and so so excited to be asked to join the in-house design team for Echo Park!! I've had to keep in under wraps for a while now and I'm just bursting! haha I've always been in love with Echo Park's  papers so it's such an honor to design for them! And with CHA here that means new lines coming out! Wanna see???

This one has to me my favorite new line. It's called The Apothecary Emporium--and with my fetish for all things Halloween--you know how much I'll be using this line! :)

Because I was gone on vacation for so long I had to hurry and send off my CHA projects and didn't get a chance to photograph them before I mailed them, but I do have a little card to show you for each line. Here's one for The Apothecary Emporium:

The next line is Victoria Gardens--so sweet and pretty! Very shabby chic!

ANd here's my card...

And last, but not least.... we have Happy Days! I love the bright colors mixed with black and white-very 50's!

And here's my card...

I think that little candy jar is so sweet!

Echo Park has another 3 lines coming out today too!

Holly Jolly Christmas

Season's Greetings

And Dots and Stripes Christmas

Leave me a comment telling me which of the first three lines is your favorite and you could win it! Remember to leave me your email address so i can contact you !  I'll announce the winner on thursday as well as the winners from the Dots and Stripes giveaway!

A getaway

We just got back from our vacation in Seattle! It was so good to see family and friends! A much needed catch-up for us all! I hope you all had a fantastic 4th! I'll have to post pics from our day later--and from our vacation.  I feel like I've been gone forever--I came home and my garden looked totally different and is in need of much weeding, and I have lots of work to catch up on! not to mention all the laundry! haha

Ready for some card insipration? The NEW Pixie Dust Paperie July kit is beautiful! Soft pastels with bright colors--it's a fun set! Here's some of my cards from the kit:

And here's another little butterfly card I made with June's kit--the butterflies were cut with my silhouette.

I'll be back later to post pictures and more projects!
