Hi Everyone!

I'm so excited to be here with my first post for the LCOM Marketing Team!! I was so lucky to get to work with Echo Park's For the Record. This is a fabulous collection. The colors are "retro" which I LOVE!! I thought they coordinated perfectly with this picture of my mother and daughter I found from last summer.

With names like tablecloth and fancy floral, I felt I couldn't do a layout without stitching!! I also had a lot of fun with the embellishments. The flowers were made by adding some scoring tape to the zipper trims and winding them around.

The Maya Yellow Ruffle trim was perfect for a banner topper and the Alpha letters fit perfectly on the pennants!

To complete, a friend found the cutest little dragon fly, which matched my mom's shirt. I spritzed him for color and hand stitched the little swirl.

That's it for today, I'll be back next week with a new layout using Echo Park's For the Record. Stop by LCOM today to peek at all of the fun papers and embellishments from this line!
