My Scraps & More August Reveal

I hope everyone has had a great weekend!  It's currently raining's kind of nice because I can hear distant thunder, and it's a nice steady rain.  I do hope it lets up at some point so we can go swimming.  In the meantime, I wanted to share my August DT projects at My Scraps & More.  This month, the team is featuring the mini-theme collections from Echo Park.  I got the pleasure of working with Birthday Girl, and it is SOOOOO adorable and fun!  The colors & patterns are right up my alley :)

I scrapped some photos from Reese's 4th Birthday (she's really about to turn 6!!  What!?)  I love the pretty pinks, blues & yellows in this collection. I printed my journaling on a transparency...I love doing that sometimes!  Changing it up from strips or handwriting...

I saw this super cute sketch on the Basic Grey blog and borrowed it for my page.

I love the banner paper...and I knew I wanted to use it for a background.  I usually don't use such a busy page for a background, so I tried to break it up by adding some yellow paint.

I also added a few buttons & some cute loopy loop border stamping.

I used this sketch from Page Maps.

My final page again features the adorable & fun banners...they are so easy to cut from the patterned paper!  I added some paint drips and some border punching.  There is also a fun journaling blog page...perfect for documenting those fun birthday memories.

I also made a card. I'm SOOOO not a good card maker...obviously. But I had a few odds & ends left with the kit, so I put this together. I think it's just fine for a 6-year-old...haha! I have to admit, I'm kind of embarrassed to even put it on my blog!

Check in with My Scraps & More all week to see what the rest of the DT created with their Echo Park kits. Have a GREAT day, and I'll be back later this week with more from Artful Delight, ScrapFIT and Challenge Me Happy!
