Echo Park Paper

I think I have mentioned on the blog previous how blown away by Echo Park Paper's entry into the scrapbooking world. Now I wanted to share that you can get them for 20% off MSRP from 2Katie Designs. Please visit our blog at for details.

I am working on designing a mini album kit with their Summertime line that is full of pinwheels and bright colors which provide plenty of inspiration for summer fun photos calling to be scrapbooked. Anyway, busy busy bee here so I am off and running but wanted to share of few pics of our summer which is gardening, grilling and SMORES!

Graduation Album

So I have the best 5 year old neice the world can offer. She is a living, breathing, walking, TALKING - miracle and I love her to peices. The little diva  graduated from her pre-K program a couple weeks back and as a gift I decided to create an album of some of my favorite photos of her along with quotes. I think it turned out pretty cute. I used a lot of sparkly paper with flowers and girlie stuff because that's what a princess would want!

For Blaklie's miracle story you can view the link below too. HAVE tissues handy!

Teacher Appreciation

The end of the school year is just a few days away and I haven't gotten to share the exciting goodies we gave as gifts to Kaia's teacher and staff on Teacher Appreciate a few weeks back.

They are too stunning not to share. My friend Becky who is an artist of everything baked was given the simple request to create something Chinese themed (to coordinate with the theme of the week at school). This is what she came up with! Over the top fortune cookies, personalize with my daughters names and other cupcakes that looked like chow mein and lo mein - it's kind of a mind freak!

I also just wanted to share a few photos from the actual luncheon set up for the staff which also reflected the Chinese theme. I can't take credit for any of it, just that I got to help set up which was fun. We have great teachers & staff along with very hard working volunteers at Elm Tree.
