Echo Park So Happy

It's time for the Echo Park blog hop. Leave a comment to be entered!

I decided to highlight just a single photo on this layout about DS and his silly cousins. It was the best photo in the batch and was perfect for the story I wanted to tell.
I used the So Happy Collection by Echo Park with it's bright, happy colors and patterns. Using a completely neutral background, let's all of those colors shine without competing. I love the carnival font alphabet stickers in shades of orange, red and hot pink.
The journaling block was started by cutting a block of polka dots on the Silhouette. This added texture and a pop of color. The houses and cloud stickers were used to reinforce the "family" theme of the page. The journaling was printed on a strip of double-sided card stock from the collection, trimmed on one side with decorative scissors and folded and stapled on the other. This was a fun, happy page that came together quickly!
