For the Record

That's the name of the new Echo Park paper collection that I played with last night between feeding a fussy baby and trying to give someone computer support via chat on Facebook- never a great idea unless both parties know a great deal more about computers than either of us did- lots of room for mis-communication.
Anyways, I've been meaning to get some photos of my mom with the boys scrapped, but never really had the "right" papers. These papers are a bit different for me, but I can't wait to play with the whole collection now that I've had a taste. I was a bit of a bum, and swapped these with the Springtime collection I was originally given, (since I don't have much use for pinks and pastels) I'm kinda kicking myself, because I wish I could have seen what my pal JJ would've created with this line. ( sorry JJ!)

I did have some fun breaking out the distress inks, and my edge distresser, as well as fussy cutting and layering some of the cool stickers.

I should mail you some of the billion sample books the paper reps leave lying around our print shop. Naturally our needs are more basic (lame Pacsetter, 80lbs Cougar etc… ) But Hammermill, Coast and West World are some personal favourites. Nice 120 lbw. weights and great cotton/linen mixes. Porous but bright colours with consistent fibre directions. Neat.

It came out beautifully!

(and not to worry - I'm so overwhelmed with LIFE right now, I might not have been able to tackle this)
