Echo Park Hop + Fancy Pants

Welcome to the Echo Park and Artful Crafts blog hop! Leave a comment and let me know which Echo Park collection is your favorite and you could WIN it. Comments will close on midnight EST, 3/26/12. Follow the blog hop below for more chances to win!
I used Echo Park's This and That Be Charming collection to make a card for my son. I love the wood planks in this line and I combined it with a great lattice cut from Silhouette.
I was recently asked to be a Guest Designer over at Fancy Pants. This is one of the projects that I made for them using the Childish Things line. I love the retro colors and whimsy in this line. I paired it with some denim fabric for a boyish feel. I used pinking shears on the fabric to mimic the edges of the filters in the line. This was a fun page to make and I loved using different pictures that I felt captured my son's childhood just "right".
