{3 Happy Days - Day one}

Hi everyone, Jen here to share with you three days of layouts using Echo Park 'Happy Days'. 
I'm a big fan of Echo Park, I think their paper collections are always so much fun. This is no exception. It's such a great seletcion of patterns, perfect so for many different themes and suited to both boy and girl pages - I love versatile ranges like that!
You can view and purchase this range in the shop here:

I used the 6x6 paper pad which features heavy weight, double sided papers in all the designs featured in the usual 12x12 size apart from the border strips and journalling cards, which I also purchased for my pages. You get 2 of each sheet, which I love because it means no having to choose my favourite side! I love 6x6 pads like this because the patterns are scaled down. Sometimes I find the 12x12 sheets with heavy pattern can feel a bit overwhelming at full size, but are easy to work with at this mini size - win!

This page features a really fun photostrip from the photobooth at a friend's recent wedding. (Just in case anyone is getting married soon - check out photobooths for your guests - amazing!)

One of my absolute favourite buys from this collection is the alphabet sticker sheet. This is fantastic value for money - you get 4 different alphabets, some borders, tabs and 24 word stickers - how's that for £2.99?!
I love to mix my title fonts up to create fun elements, so I tried to squeeze lots of different fonts into my title. I used 3 different ones from the sticker sheet, along with a word cut from the journalling cards sheet and layered onto a chipboard banner. Elsewhere on the page I used other chipboard pieces and a border strip for more text based embellishments.

The finishing touches to my page were some fancy brads, some chipboard pieces and some stickers from the 12x12 element sticker sheet. I added some doodling around some of the stickers and papers for definition, and jotted down the key date & place details. 

Back tomorrow with another Happy Days page!
