*Echo Park + May Arts Blog Hop*

hi everyone!
if you're stopping by during the Echo Park & May Arts blog hop...
you're in the RIGHT place!!

better late than never - as my mom has always told me...

I apologize for my post being so late
- our internet/phone/DSL has been knocked
out since Sunday evening due to an AT&T issue in our neighborhood!
my neighbors on each side of me, one across the street (weird, right)
and us...ALL out.

anyway...you have NO idea how happy I am to be back up and running!
Now let's get to the hop!



for my hop project, I worked with one of my favorites, For The Record


The colors are some of my favorites right now.
I love the rich reds, the blacks and mixed with the turquoise
and a bit of creams & greens...yum!

Heart Throb:


I hand cut my hearts a little bigger than I actually wanted, so I cut one
a little smaller & ended up using the leftover cut out as the frame for
my smaller heart at the bottom of my layout

the colors were PERFECT for the photo of my son I wanted to use.
I also incorporated 4 different May Arts Ribbons.
I am a sucker for ribbon. I'll use it for any project.
Be it boy, girl, whatever. I LOVE ribbon.

I also used the border with numbers & the ruler to sort of
define my son's SR. photo.
plus..he's one cute boy...I know, I'm biased.

Now what would you say if I told you that YOU too could win
your own collection of:


or whichever kit you'd like to have your sweet little hands on...
wouldn't that be FUN?
You sure can!
all you have to do is leave me a comment here
telling me your favorite release by
Echo Park...new, or previously released & which kit you'd like
to have in your sweetlittle hands!
I will choose by random on Friday & post right away.
Please also include your email address in your entry so I can get right back to you!

But wait!
