Wow, I loved this collection from Echo Park - This & That. I'm not one to usually fawn over Echo Park, but they have really come a long way in the last two years from their infancy stages, very impressed I was with this collection. I loved the colour collection of the browns, yellows and teal green. I loved the boy theme to it, and all the wood grain!
So, this is me at Casino Rama in Orillia Ontario - my friend got tickets to see Sheryl Crow and we decided to 'make a donation' at the casino afterwards - great times! The arms raised in the air was from a commercial that Casino Rama was re-running over and over - I guess you had to see it to understand.
The theme to this month was sewing - I've employed 3 different types of stitching - I used my machine to stitch down the middle, I hand sewed in a blanket stitch the pocket and I did some faux stitching on the arrow and again across the middle. I layered some Prima flowers and coloured the naked chipboard arrow with the new Spring Distress ink in Peacock Feather - love that colour!! I had alot of story to tell with this layout, so I decided to tuck a journaling card into the pocket.
