I Am the Captain of the Lidemoki (Echo Park Summer Adventure)


You may be asking yourself what the heck is a Lidemoki? LOL! It was the name of my Dad's motor boat. He named it after me and my three sisters, using the first two letters of each of our names (in age order). You can probably guess where I fit in the lineup. :)

In addition to making up silly words, my Dad was also fond of making up silly songs. Yes, there was a song related to boarding the boat. The song was loosely based on Gilbert and Sullivan's "I Am the Captain of the Pinafore" from the musical, The HMS Pinafore (a show I saw with my Dad when I was younger), hence the title of my page.

This page features Echo Park's new Summer Adventure mini collection, along with bits and pieces from Simple Stories, Jillibean Soup, Chic Tags and Elle's Studio. I totally adore the nautical theme. It couldn't have been more perfect for this 90s photo.

Working on a summer page, in the midst of the snowiest and coldest winter ever, has left me yearning for summer even more. How about you?
