Another Bundle of Joy with Echo Park

This time...It's A Boy!  Well, a mini album for a boy that is :)

Lori Whitlock's Creative Team

I am excited to be able to share some exciting news with you today.  I've been invited to be part of Lori Whitlock's creative team!  I've absolutely loved Lori's designs for a long time.  You've seen Lori's fabulous work at Echo Park Paper -- she designs some of my favorite paper lines ... "This & That Charming", "For the Record", "Note to Self" among others, and the recent "All About a Boy" and "Sweet Girl" collections.  Lori also has wonderful SVG files for die cutting on Silhouette's site and her own website Lori Whitlock.

I am thrilled to be part of Lori's team and hope that you'll pop over to her blog and look around. Leave a comment and tell her Traci sent you over!

Color Challenge: Navy, Aqua, & Orange

I was going through some pictures recently, and found these pictures of my boys when they were much younger.  It made be so happy to see these silly faces that I created a mini album just for these pictures.

These colors are perfect for a challenge over at The Play Date Cafe.  If you have never joined a challenge over there, you may want to head over and have some fun!  I recently discovered this site and plan to enter this little mini into this week's challenge which is to use the colors of navy, aqua, and orange in a project :)



Hope you join me in playing along :)

Echo Park's Bundle of Joy...so Sweet

Since one of the most common requests I receive for custom mini albums is for baby gifts, I am always on the search for adorable collections.  Echo Park's Bundle of Joy does not disappoint -- full of new baby cuteness :)





So since I've had my "pink fix"... I think I will go create something fun with the blue and green boy version which of course, is equally adorable!
