Susan Stringfellow  *you are here :)

Now for the inspiration. I just got the beautiful New Echo Park "For the Record 2: Tailored Collection" wanted to share a nice summery layout with you guys. I love this collection because it has the most perfect summer colors and florals but with this cool pop of black in the patterned papers as well as the embellishments. Yes, this collection has awesome embellies including: Chipboard Accents, Layered Chipboard, and Decorative Brads. 

This page is about my ever changing front yard. We have lost a huge pine, put in a little Red Maple, and added a bird bath that I just love, not that you can see the birdbath because my Vincas have taken over that flower bed and the Esperanza have taken over the front of my house. It's summer and we have had a bit of rain so my yard is a jungle and I like it. So I made a few daisies to go with the layered chipboard flower and really floral-ed up my page.

Have fun blog hopping!!!

Your layout makes me smile - mostly because it screams Summer, and we are stuck in what has been a recently dreary winter in NZ. I have hope for a change at some point! - HeatherP
