We will be hopping until Sunday, June 30th, at 11:59 p.m. CST. The grand prize winner will be announced on Tuesday July 2nd.

My take on the Project Life theme turned out in a layout. I have never done Project Life, I know myself too well to know that I won't keep up with it :-) But it was fun to be 'forced' now to try something in PL style.
I just took some random everyday life photos about things I love to wear, to eat, to drink, to use, to look at and of course one of me with my best friend. I kept the design of the page clean and simple because of the many photos.
I loved working with the Here & Now collection by Echo Park, the bright colors are also saying something about me, these colors make me happy! All the stamps are from the new July release of Give a Girl a Blog, this stamp set is perfect for Project Life!

Echo Park Here & Now: Chalkboard/Lt Pink paper, Dots paper, Rainbow Chevrons paper, Flower Buds paper, Flower Patch paper, Chalkboard Quotes paper, Teal/Green paper, Feathers paper, Alpha stickers.
