Hello Summertime {Echo Park} plus a little giveaway!

Hello friends! I have a little more summer inspiration for you today. I just can't help it! We were at a pool party Saturday night, complete with hot dogs, and a margarita machine. And then on Monday, we spent the morning at the beach, and the afternoon at the pool, and finished the day off with bacon cheeseburgers. There may be two more weeks of school, but it's SUMMER baby!

I created this card with some more Walking on Sunshine collection from Echo Park. I used the 6x6 paper pad, plus the "Summertime" sticker from the 12x12 Collection kit. I also paired it up with a Hello die from Paper Smooches, and a tag die from Avery Elle. (Those are two dies that I use again. . .and again. . .and again!)

Okay, so crafty pals, while I have you here, can I ask you a few questions? I'm playing around with my blog post format, and how I include supply information. I'm here to share with YOU, so I'd love to know what you like best. Do you like to see links to the supplies used? If so, how do you prefer them - do you like all the links at the bottom, like I did today? Or do you like them sprinkled through my text (which I guess I also did today!) Do you prefer images of the products at the bottom of the post (like on blogs which use Inlinkz)? I'm considering using Inlinkz so I'd also love your thoughts, if you use it on your blog!

ANDDD, to sweeten the pot a bit, I'm going to put together a little crafty goodie bag for one lucky commenter. Will you share your thoughts with me? Pretty please???? I will draw a winner on Friday May 30th!

Disclosure: I am beginning to use affiliate links in my blog posts. This simply means that if you make purchases from a website using my affiliate link, I earn a small profit. This does not cost you more money. I will never recommend products that I don't trust, or that I have not used myself. You crafty lovelies are my friends, and I will always treat you as that! And that, dears, is why I'm being totally upfront with you, and sharing the scoop! Currently, I will be providing affiliate links to scrapbook.com, simonsaysstamp.com, picmonkey.com, and sizzix.com. I also have an affiliate link to subscriptions to Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking. I will keep you up to date, if any of these affiliates change!
