Fantastic Four | Scrap The Boys | Southern Girls

     Hey Everyone!  Thanks for joining me as I share my latest creation.  This is a layout using our nephew's fourth birthday picture.  He's five already!  

     I started the layout with the sketch over at Scrap The Boys and the stripe challenge from Southern Girls.  Both challenges gave me a great jumping off point.
    The paper I chose is the Echo Park Birthday Wishes collection. The main reason I chose this collection was that it was out on my desk from two other creations so it was handy.  I did however work in elements from other paper companies to achieve the look I was going for.

    I have really been working on combining collections to get things used up.  For example, the letters in the paper collection were just wrong somehow.  Instead of used a combination of tiny letters from Jillibean Soup and Bella Blvd's Max collection.  The stars were also Bella products that I have two sheets of and I'm trying to get used up.
    I hope you like my product mash up, and that it gives you ideas of how to combine collections for a seamless layout.  Until next time...stay crafty!
