Echo Park Blog Hop

Welcome to the Echo Park Paper Design Team Blog Hop! Today the Echo Park Paper Design Team is showcasing projects from our latest collections. I chose the For the Record Documented line to make this page about my nephew turning four. I love the blues and greens with punches of black featured in this line.
Instructional PDF coming soon at www.echopark.mybigcommerce.com/projects/
The background shape was cut with the Silhouette. The shaped "windows" in this background were filled with patterned paper from the For the Record 2 line. A few layers of embellishments including a ruler sticker, journaling spot and bicycle chipboard add theme, layers and punches of color to the layout. While it's not a traditional birthday layout, the colors and icons add a boy celebration feel to the layout.

For more great ideas, be sure to follow the blog hop list below as you hop from one blog to the next. 
ONE winner will be selected from EACH blog to receive an Echo Park Paper collection kit of their choosing. To qualify for the kit, comments will be due by midnight EST, Sunday, September 23rd to qualify for the drawing. The winner will be announced on each blog Monday, September 24th so be sure to check back to see if you've won. Good luck!
