"Family" Layout - Layered Banner Flag Pole/Echo Park

Happy Monday, everyone! I have a new layout to share with you all. I was lucky enough to win an Echo Park prize pack bundle from two peas in a bucket a couple of months ago. It finally came in the mail and I just had to put it to good use.
I think this layout is probably my new favorite! I just love how it turned out. I had these little wooden sticks left over from making pinwheels for my daughter's birthday. I wanted to find a way to incorporate them into a layout so I started by making a large banner flag pole. The rest of the layout just kind of came together after that! The pictures are of our family from last Easter.

I wanted to add some journaling but the layout was already busy with adding more text. I also do not like how my handwriting looks but I wanted to add a handwritten touch. Luckily I watched a video of Shannon Tidwell putting together a layout - and she had this wonderful idea of adding the journaling to the back and attaching it with a brad! That way it could swivel out and be read by anyone who cares.
Supplies Used: Echo Park's So Happy Together Collection, Studio Calico's Wood Veneer circles, Studio Calico Die Cuts, American Craft Thickers, Dear Lizzy Polaroid Cardstock Embellishments, My Minds Eye Enamel Dots, Elle's Studio tags

Thanks for reading!
