FRESH and FUN 2 page layout with Echo Park!

Today I have a 2 page layout to share with you! To be perfectly honest, I struggle with 2 page layouts! Anyone else? When I started scrapping years ago, that's all I did, and then somewhere along the way, I switched to single pagers. I think Stacy Julian and her "Library of Memories" system changed me. I learned that it's not always about the quantity of photos, but the importance. Notice I didn't say "quality". Sometimes the "best" photo of an event, or moment isn't the highest quality. But it may be the only photo representing what I want to share. So, I tend to edit the amount of photos I use on most layouts and the words do the rest for me. I've used Echo Park "That's My Boy" for this project. The papers had many color choices that to me, are pretty neutral and would work with most photos. Nothing too bright or jarring, but with enough "pop" to be fun! For my journaling, I simply cut strips of paper. You can cut as many as you need, or just put a journaling box there. The patterned papers, cardstock, and Elements sticker sheet will be available for purchase. I've also used the Lawn Fawn sentiment set I used on the birthday card from yesterday! Multi-use! :) We will also have some of the page elements I cut with the Silhouette Cameo ("polaroid" frames and zig-zag borders) available for purchase.  The element sticker sheet had so many options. I could have made these pages to center around sports, or video games, or other "boyish" delights. I've chosen to theme it to use with photos of my sons, or husband. The projects will be on display in the store for viewing in person if you'd like! Thanks for looking and EnJOY!
