Echo Park Playground - so fun!

I got my DT package from Your Scrapbook Stash and in it was some (well lots) of Echo Park.  I just received it on Thursday and couldn't wait to play.  I used the Playground paper pack for today's projects.   It was just PERFECT for these old photos I had just waiting to be scrapped!  

For my first layout I used the Twisted Sketch (twist - play)

Here is my layout of Danica at 2.  She was so independent, and wanted to do everything on her own.  We were always being told, "No help me".  She scared us many times, she was a monkey, a daredevil but did know her limits.  For this layout and the next one, I cut the banners from a sheet of the pattern paper attached some of the banners with foam dots, sewed along the top and curled some of them up for dimension.  The talking bubble is mounted on foam squares.

For the next layout I used the Inspired Blueprints sketch for this week:

Another old photo of Danica (boy do I miss those days - well except for the temper tantrums!)  We were at a  Company picnic when she fell asleep in the tire swing.  It was so cute! I used my Cricut to cut the scallop border and the grass.  Again I used some of the banner paper and I love the tree sticker.  I added a bit of twine on top of the sticker for a bit of dimension.

Finally, I used the JUGS challenge to make a card.

I used my new Lawn Fawn stamp set and of course all of these projects have some Twinery twine somewhere on them ;)  I cut the camera out of some of the pattern paper in the pack and mounted it on foam a foam square.

Looks to me like your mojo was revving full force here, Laurel. The layouts are fabulous. The papers work wonderfully with those cute photos. I can't believe she fell asleep in the swing. She must have been tired! LOL The card is great, too, don't get me wrong but your layouts steal the show this time. *Ü*
