Loving Echo Park...

I have a huge stash of Echo Park papers, from the earliest collections to one of the most recent. And instead of hoarding it, I really do need to get in and just use it!!

This is my contribution for the Design Dollies Elements Challenge this week. The theme is 'creative folds' ~ I added a row of pleated paper. Pleating is one of my favourite things to do with offcut strips of patterned paper. The photograph on the layout is a little blurry because I took it at the New Year's Eve celebrations; I had my camera set up for the fireworks and not for portraits. But despite the fuzziness I still love it and the special memories of that night.

I used: a sketch from Artful Delight, and everything is from Echo Park except for the alphas (Basic Grey 'Origins') and the rhinestones (Studio 18). I cut the artisan shape using a Teresa Collins chipboard book cover as a template.

I'm also entering my layout at:
# Papertake Weekly ~ Anything Goes
# Charisma Cardz ~ No cards allowed
# Paper Crafting Journey ~ Bling

I also made a quick card: with some leftovers:

This one is for:
# Paper Wings ~ National Scrapbooking Day
# One Stop Craft ~ Birthdays
# Sentimental Sundays ~ Anything Goes
