Echo Park ~ Magical Birthday Boy #1

Hi all and Happy Friday! 
It’s Anna back with you and this month I’m working with a new collection - Echo Park Magical Birthday boy. You can find the whole collection in the shop here. This collection was released alongside a ‘sister’ collection in Magical Birthday Girl and you can find this collection in the shop too here. Both collections are Disney and birthday themed, but don’t be put off by the Disney theme as they’d work really well for non Disney birthdays too or indeed just Disney pages. I have created 4 layouts to share with you over the next few weeks and I hope that you’ll find that I have really tried to vary my pages that I have made with this collection. 
For my first layout, it is a Disney birthday! Several  years back, I celebrated my birthday at Disneyland Paris, so this page documents this...

I began by gutting the Make a Wish paper and trimming some bazzill cardstock down by about a centimetre each side. I gave the cardstock some texture by distressing the edges. 
I then used my silhouette cameo to cut out a Paige Evans balloons cutfile, but rather than use the cutfile on the layout, I used it as a template to create sewing holes, I then sew the balloons in coordinating coloured thread. 

I wanted to include a second photo which was a card that my parents gave me, it was significant to my Disney birthday because they brought it in France and it has French wording. However it didn’t really fit it with the colours on my layout, so I made an interactive element, covering it with a ‘lift the flap’. I created this using one of the wording shapes from the Birthday Fun paper. 

I used a few of the element stickers around my layout and also fussy cut some of the clouds from the B side of the Tags paper. 

I cut out three of the journaling tags from the Tags patterned paper, and made them into a little mini book to tell the story. 


To finish, I added some Nuvo drops along the side of my photograph and in clusters around the page. 

Thanks so much for looking! Have a great weekend!
