Besties (Echo Park Best Friends Forever)


What does an almost 13 year old do while hanging out with her best friends before heading out for her birthday dinner? Take selfies, of course (and then edit them with her current favorite app — which is Retrica by the way)!

Echo Park's Best Friends Forever Mini Theme worked perfectly for this photo. I love how fun and happy this collection is. So perfect for girlfriend selfies!

I tried a number of different background colors (OK, more like obsessed over a number of different background colors) before going with gray. Of all of the colors I tried, the gray allowed all of the colors in this collection to pop and shine. I started with hot pink but it was too bright. Purple, yellow and light green didn't wow me either. Believe it or not, I've never used gray as a background before (and yes, there is gray in this collection, although it's hard to tell). I guess I should consider it as an alternative neutral from now on.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderfully creative day. :)
