{{ *Summer Days* }}

How I love summer days! I am enjoying a day off from teaching summer school and catching up on blogs and scrapbooking. I was so excited to see that Pumpkin Spice is having a design team call! Their store is awesome and filled with some of my favorite lines. 

They want to see a brand new entry, just for this challenge using 2 or more of the companies they carry, so I chose Echo Park (Summer Days), Bo Bunny (Sunkissed) and My Minds Eye (Lime Twist). *Echo Park is one of my favorites!!* It is so fun and easy to pair the awesome Echo Park patterns with other lines.

I created a 2 page layout this afternoon with pictures from last summer. Since I got married (I'm the oldest!), one of my brothers and I decided to plan an amusement park road trip each summer to spend some "brother/sister" time together. We both love the big thrill rides! The title says "The 2nd Annual Brother/Sister Date at Dorney Park".

I just love how it turned out! So bright and summery, just like that day.

Here's the recipe:
A few closeups :)

One of my favorite things about Echo Park is their alphabet stickers. I used an extra long title on this layout, mixing and matching the different fonts.

I am *loving* using twine in different ways on my layouts. Here, I wrapped my scalloped edged border strips in a criss cross pattern (kind of mimicking the roller coaster rails).

Thanks so much for stopping by today and for Pumpkin Spice for considering me for the team :) Be sure to stop by their store and may even treat yourself to some new scrappy goodies. It is summer afterall! ;)

Have a great Friday!!!

What a wonderfully fun page Suzanne. And a great tradition. The EP and Lime Twist collections work perfectly together. Good luck at Pumpkin Spice.
