Echo Park Hop!

Hi there and welcome to the Echo Park Blog Hop! I'm a few days late posting this so bear with me here.  I had major computer problems this past weekend and thought I had lost my hard drive. One (not so quick) visit to the MAC store, much hair pulling, one new laptop and we're back in business.

So here we go, I created this card with the Echo Park Note to Self line. I love the masculine colors and textures in this line. I created this card by cutting out a heart with my Silhouette out of a scrap piece of cork paper from the line. The stripe paper added a pop of color, while the sticker and key remain the focus of the card. I cut the key and hearts with the Silhouette as well, adding some ball chain for texture. Two white buttons finish off the card.

One winner will be chosen from each blog to receive an Echo Park collection of their choice. To enter, leave a comment with your favorite EP release by midnight (EST) 4/22/12. Winners will be chosen on each blog on 4/23/12. Good luck!


Now HOP to: Jen's blog for another chance to win. (Scroll back to Monday's post). And if you get lost along the way, here are the rest of the blogs:

  6. Glad you're back in business - how scary that must've been to think you'd lost your hard drive!
    Great card - love the key and the sentiment.
    My favorite EP collection is usually the last one :) - I love Note to Self, the mini themes Enjoy the Ride and Toy Box look fun...and I just saw the Paradise Beach images today! I'm sure that will be a favorite too.

  8. I'm going to have to say Note to Self only because it's sold out at the couple places I've tried to order it...so I'm guessing that many people couldn't be wrong!
