Happy Camper by Echo Park

OopsHappy Monday everyone:
Anita here and I can't even begin to tell you what a great time I had making these fun projects with Echo Park's Happy Camper line.  It's fun for me to share this slice of summer with you.  This camper is just too stinkin' cute.
Photo 3Ooey, gooey, sticky, yummy smores anyone?  This is actually a gift card box.  The wood grain paper lifts up to reveal a gift card in it.
Camping project
I am in love with this adorable bug box.  I had such fun creating it and love the new solid twine from The Twinery that Lisa and Sharon have in the store.  You just have to get some.  It looks wonderful on any type of project.

Happy for You HOC Color Challenge

 vintage hues

I can't believe that is really September already.  I made this card for a dear friend who was finally able to sell her home and move to a better place after four years.  I am so happy for her that things will be much easier for her now.  She is my best friend and means the world to me.  I hope that you have a chance to play along with the House of Cards color challenge.  This is my week and our team is doing classic and elegant cards, and they are gorgeous.

Sewing Projects

I realized that I have never shared any of my sewing projects on my blog so here are two of my favorite. The bib and Onesie set were published in Cricut Magazine and the towel so is for a dear friend's house warming. Thanks for looking.

My Guy

This layout made me so happy to make.  I adore my son, the way a mother does.  He is my gentle giant and I miss him so much now that he lives away from home.  Fortunately we get to see him two or three times a month.  This is the start of his birthday week.  His birthday is on Saturday and he is going to be 22.  I don't know where the time has gone.  He is engaged to be married after he graduates from engineering school at Northeastern University in the fall of 2015.  He is well on his way to a wonderful future and has a wonderful fiance.  I remember vividly waiting for his arrival and ironically he came right on his due date, and has been a pleasure and a treasure from day one.  What a good boy to come on his due date.  I love you with all my heart Sean and the young man you are warms my heart.  Have a great week and a wonderful birthday.
Now that I can see again after wiping the tears from my eyes, this layout is also for two challenges at two of my most favorite places on the web.  Paper Issues and The Twinery are working together this issue at Paper Issues and you can play along here.  I had fun stitching this heart and the two X's on this layout while watching tv with my hubby.  You can check out the X marks the spot challenge here at The Twinery and have until the end of the week to play along.  I had fun using Vintage Bella Blvd papers here.  So fun to dig deep in my Bella stash to find papers to match the photo.

You are so Loved

I made another entry for the Paper Issues current sketch challenge.  I made a card and made a quilt where the circles would be.  Thanks for looking and hope you have a chance to play along before the challenge ends. Paper Issues
