Shine Bright (Echo Park Home for the Holidays)


There's nothing like the allure of pretty presents under a Christmas tree, especially when you're a kid. Alexa is drawn to them, much like I was, picking up each one, shaking it, and trying to figure out what's inside. Sometimes Alexa's cat gets into the action too, clawing open a bit of the wrapping paper. Thankfully he hasn't ruined a surprise yet.

This photo isn't the best but I still wanted to scrap it. I changed it to black and white and sharpened it as best I could. Now the memory is documented (using Echo Park's new Home for the Holidays collection) and Alexa can look back at it in the years to come. That's what scrapping is all about, right?

Detail shots and a complete supply list for this layout can be found on the Echo Park blog.

  2. This is so beautiful. The collection is fantastic. You did well with the photo. I do that sometimes when I can't correct the color or lighting just like I want it. Does PI carry this?
