Playing with Echo Park

In gathering supplies to do the gift album on Munchkin, I realized that I didn't really have any fun, bright Chirstmas lines. So I remedied that when Echo Park released their Holly Jollly line! I was in a Christmassy mode this weekend and decided to break it out and see what I could come up with for his book. I managed to get the Christmas LOs done for 2008.

The number paper was perfect for this LO of Munchkin and the advent calendar! And the bright, cheery colors worked well for the other LOs of him openeing presents at our house and at his grandparents house.

Sketch 124 is up over at Twisted Sketches!

Time seems to be getting away from me lately!! I can't believe that October is almost over and Christmas is right around the corner...that means I really need to get moving on these gift albums.

But, for this weeks sketch and twist at Twisted Sketches, I scrapped for myself instead. It worked perfectly with some photos I had just taken of Denver University's Ritchie Center and Magness Arena.

The thing that got me while I was creating this LO was that I really wanted it to be about the journaling, the feeling I get seeing the Ritchie Center lit up as we approach it, the energy and buzz inside Magness, the love I have for college hockey. And I was very happy on how it turned out, while keeping with the sketch assignment!

The first regular season home game for the Pios is tonight so there will be more Pios LOs coming up soon!

In the meantime, come on over to Twisted Sketches and play along with this weeks challenge!

Twisted Sketch #122 is up!!

Come check out the latest sketch over at Twisted Sketches!

Here is what I came up with for this weeks sketch:

I used Bo Bunny Et Cetera for everything, except the twine (MME) and the yellow flower (Kaiser Craft)
I've been trying to work on some gift albums lately (which I need to share some of the LOs here) and focusing so much on those, that it was nice to do something other than a Munchkin LO or one from my sister's wedding!

Hope you come on over to Twisted Sketches and play along!
