climb up the pole

Hello Monday and welcome to Echo Park Blog Appreciation week! It's day 1 and I have a layout to share today. I started with the latest sketch of the week from Shimelle and broke out the Playgroud collection. This collection fit perfectly with the pictures I wanted to use!!

I started with white cardstock as my base and trimmed the blue pattern paper to size (I believe it's 10x10). I put my photos down next off to the side of the blue square. I punched three different sized circles using the pink script pattern paper next, and placed them on the layout where I wanted them without adhering them just yet. I had some scraps of the heart pattern paper, but nothing that long. So to slove that problem I just trimmed two to the same width and hid the opening under the large circle!! Then I just layered pattern paper (the blue from the base, the hearts, and a green dotted paper) on the circles. I then used the letter stickers and elements stickers for each of the embellishment clusters, and used the heart and an arrow on each of the three as well for continuity. I kept the journaling to a minimum, only writing "look at me Aunt Debbie" on the banner sticker on the bottom cluster. I did another page a while back that was heavy on the journaling about this subject, and that layout will be very close to this one in my there was no sense in writing all that same stuff over again on this layout.

This layout came together pretty quickly since the papers in the collection all coordinate together!! I didn't have to dig through my stash to find papers and stickers that would work together...Echo Park did that all for me!!

I will be back tomorrow with another project to share!! Until then, thanks for stopping by!!

  1. Hi. I thought of you yesterday when I came across a blog post that said there was a limited time promo of a NEW camera app for iphone for free. I have noticed you like the hipstamatic photos and thought you might like to check this one out if you have an iphone. It is called Steampunk Photo Tada! I downloaded it for free and it is a nice fun app. Don't know if i would have bought it though, but free is good. If the promo is still running it just comes up as free in the app store.

    Happy Crafting,
