Take Me to Lauderdale

The Lauderdale collection by Basic Grey is bold, vibrant, colorful and I absolutely love it!  There is a summer warmth about these papers that makes me wanna shout, throw my hands up and shout! lol. After inhaling deeply the new paper scent, I cut into this orgiastic feast of colors for this layout. 

They are some of my favorite photos from last summer.  How they make me smile :)  Seriously, how hilarious are these crazy people?! lol. Given the photojournalism nature of these pictures, this is now my new favorite layout, a slice of ordinarily happy life captured as it unfolded. How absolutely delightful!

I added an Echo Park border and sewed on some buttons.  There are several clouds from the sticker sheets by Echo Park. How about that adorable October Afternoon's jelly thingy from several years ago :) Good times indeed, with that water stream about to hit Second Child!
Gosh, I love scrapbooking :)
