A Top 50 challenge...and MORE Echo Park!

I know I said I didn't have too much left from my Echo Park 'Summer Days' kit, but I did manage another LO anyway...LOL This one was for Vicki's May Monthly Challenge at Scrapbooking Top 50. The criteria for the challenge were to use song lyrics from a song that is meaningful to the person in the pics as the title; misting in more than one colour; and fussy cutting.
Here's my LO...


I chose 'Dorothy the Dinosaur' as my song, as Brielle just looooves Dorothy. The different coloured mists are all there, even if they are a little hard to see in the pic - I used 'Polka Dot pink' chalkboard glimmermist on the paper doiley, 'Key Lime Pie' on the Kraft cardstock, then flicked 'Jazz Blue' around. I fussy cut the scallops from a sheet of EP pp.

For the embellishments I used gorgeous Websters Trendsetter green fashion trim; Lime Tree Creations crochet flower; Burdy's Embellies yoyo flowers & chippie heart button; and even the tag from the PJs...


I had a little play with my blog margins last night so that I could post larger pics of my 8.5" layouts - what do you think of the bigger size photos? Better or worse?
