This is still one of my favourite collections of echo park papers (For the Record) and I'm nearly through it all now too. I'm still not absolutely sure about this page - don't know why but I LOVE the photo - it is a shot of my DS in the before mentioned canoe on our local lake, and I have no idea what he is giggling about but it is a real belly laugh and makes me smile everytime I look at it. There are a few other papers in there, like the blue dot glitz paper, and the crate paper doily, and the ticket and pin which all came in my Handmade Hannah kits. I made the fan flowers a while back, I like them as they feel quite masculine, and the swirl is from the for the record sticker sheet. I had a go at some lacing and used some blue embroidery silk - I pre-punched the holes with a needle and then stitched all the lacing. I did have a go at some more spritzing which came out a bit too bright for me (well my intention) however I wasn't able to turn the page over this time!!! (:)) so just went with it. The title I die cut on my robo - on the word laugh I added an American Crafts fake stitch edge to the letters too - the word often I had to very carefully remove from the sheet - couldn't work out any way to make the font thicker - but I am just learning.
