Hello there, well this is the second installment in the layouts I've created recently using a selection of a an Echo Park kit sent to me by the lovely Jen from Wear Crafts (click on the Wear Crafts button top right to find out more).
This has to be one of happiest photos that was taken last year in Llandudno during our first visit there. Said 13 year old tried his hand on one of those 'grabbit' machines, I told him it was pointless and that he'd spend a fortune, so you can imagine his utter delight when on his second attempt he got himself a Minion! Honestly I couldn't believe it. I kept the layout quite simple (I'm attempting to embrace 'white' space at the moment) as I felt the photo itself was busy enough, I didn't actually have a sheet of paper that was just the right shade of yellow so imagine my delight when I opened these papers from Jen, not only did the papers include this yellow sheet, but also the blue denim looking sheet too. I added the pool ball sticker, used the All About a Boy sticker as my main title and hand wrote the journalling - quick and easy!
Adding simple elements to your layouts really does make all the difference, the little star stickers came from the pack. I added an orange brad I had to hand to the compass point and layered up on foam pads ensuring it was pointing towards the birthday boy!
