Hello Summer!

Boy, am I ready for summer! :) I have thoroughly enjoyed my week of freedom!

Yesterday we went swimming at a friend's pool, and I knew I just had to take some pitcures for to use with this Hello Summer! Echo Park paper I recently bought. I love the bright colors in this line. They're not too bright, and not too dark. I kinda blindly bought it because I ordered online, and I hadn't really been looking at it at all till I saw that I needed to order a couple more things to make my order qualify for free shipping. I saw it and thought it was cute, so I stuck it in my cart. And I really am loving it! (I really love all paper though, can you believe it?) I guess blind buying isn't that bad! :P

I used the awesome weekly sketch over at Pretty Little Studio. I really liked this sketch (Haha... I only use them if I like them of course), but I wasn't sure how I was going to ground the photos. I really didn't want them floating in space on the page. It just so happened that my mom opened her birthday presents last night, and s
he got some Paula Dean cookware. Inside some of the pans there were little cardboard rings. Perfect! I painted them and used them as stamps on this page (I also used a small cup for the smaller circles.). It gave just the effect I was wanting. Woopee! :) It's so fun to use something abnormal on your scrapbook pages! 

Ok- that's it for today! Have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend! I am off work on Monday! Woo hoo! I'll probably pop in with some more projects... just depends on how much time I have.

This page is so, so cute Heather!! I LOVE that Orange background!! One of my fav colors! And I think adding the painted rings was a genius idea! Really great use of white space on this one too!
