Summertime Means Sports

Hi, there! Today, I am sharing a simple page that I did recently. One for me, just to document what means summer in our family.

Here, I documented what means "Summertime". 
For our family, "Summertime" means Sports. Why? Since my kid was little, I look for some part-time summer camp where he can learn a new sport. This layout shows my kid at his summer camp during 2008 learning soccer. Wow, time really goes so fast!

I used the Echo Park collection "Summer Days", alphabet thickers from American Crafts and cardstock stickers from Echo Park "Sweet Summertime" collection. I did not have an orange alphabet to complete my title, which really surprised me. 

Therefore, I looked thru my alphabet stickers from my Echo Park's old stash and found the sticker letters to spell the words "Sports &". Love when manufacturers release products with similar colors and styles every year, like in this case with "Summer Days" and "Summertime" collections. This is my tip for today: Always check your stash!

On another note, last week I received an email from Jen Gallagher with a permission request to upload one of my pages in the new Echo Park Flickr gallery.

I was very excited, since I am fan of Jen's work and I love Echo Park products. Moreover, I still feel very excited when I read: "In it, we've added the best of the best designs we've found both on the internet, our Fresh Face Designers, and those created by our in-house design team." It really feels good, that one of my projects was chosen.

The layout that was requested is this one, created with the "Sweet Summertime" collection.

They have a contest right now, just for uploading your Echo Parks projects at the Flickr gallery. 

Next, is the reveal of The Paper Variety with a Page Maps sketch challenge. The prize for the current week is a very good one, a July kit from Artful Delight. 

I still cannot believe that my term ended. Loved my design team experience at The Paper Variety. Thanks Abby and Suzy for letting me, be part of your team! My best wishes to the new DT girls! All of them are super talented! Love the new upcoming challenges. Pretty sure, I will play at some of them. So keep tuned at The Paper Variety.

In addition, there is a new challenge at the 3 Scrappy Boys forums for the month of July. It is a recipe challenge: all the chipboard, mist and Core-dinations cardstock are at 20% off right now. 

If you upload a project at the 3 Scrappy Boys gallery and the challenge's thread including these three type of products, you will participate in the voting for the prize of a gift certificate. Awesome, isn't!

Well, I still have lots to do! This is just everything for now!

Until next, and have a wonderful day!
