Better Late, Than Never!

I've been itching to get this sketch done for ST, since they posted it last week.  But, we had a busy weekend and then I got sick on Sunday night with a cold and sore throat.  So I was determined to get it done today, no matter how I was feeling.  I wanted to try the Polaroid look on my pics for this lo.  I always love it when I see someone using it for their pics.  I used befunky.com to add a tint to my photos and then cropped them in my Desktop Publishing program and before printing them, I added a box around the picture to make it look like a Polaroid photo.  Then I printed them, cut them out, and added a little bit of black ink around the edges.

I CANNOT say enough how much I LOVE the Echo Park Hybrids!!  It's great having the paper kits, but I love, love having the digi kits at my disposal.  I think one of my favorite aspects of the digi kits, is being able to adjust the size of the alphas and embellies...the possibilities are endless.  This lo is using EP For the Record kit...which I would probably vote as my most favorite of all of the ones they have out right now.

So without further ado, here is the lo I created this week:
