Echo Park - Family Man Mini Kit

I was lucky enough to get to play with not 1 BUT! 2 ranges of Echo Park this month
The 2nd range I was able to play with was the Echo Park - Family Man Mini Kit 
click the photo of the kit for direct link

With this kit I have created 3 layouts & 2 Cards...
First up are the 2 Cards!
 the bird is a Studio Calico - take note birds available HERE 
I've also added some washi tape  HERE

 OK! onto the layouts
First up is this layout!
& I have to admit I really liked the striped paper & wanted to create a layout with it been the background paper.... BUT! I'm now finding it not my FAVE... Don't get my wrong I still like it! It's just I don't L.O.V.E it... 
 The Wooden flourish is a Kaisercraft - Rose Wreath available HERE
Also! a Cheery Lynn - Fanciful Flourish HERE
 The brown flowers are Manor House Creations I've dabbed some gesso on them...
Next up is this layout...
Awww! I was Sooooo HAPPY to be able to Capture this moment..... Jas was chatting away to his dad & Ethan was getting in a cuddle while he could!!! I grabbed the Camera & got this!!
 The bird cage is a La Blanche stamp which I've stamped onto some white Cardstock & then cut it out...
 Prima Flowers & Vine....I did split the vine into 2 & then added some gesso to 1 of the vine bit!!
 & lastly  
 I've used the 6x6 Chevron Crafter Workshop template with some Modeling Paste...
Also! some hidden Journaling...
 Another super YUMMY new Winter song flower - Manor House Creations...
OK! SO! I know it has become a long post, If you made it all the way to here I hope I didn't bore you too much....
 AND If you are still willing to leave behind a Comment then THANK YOU!!
Hope you all have a GREAT SUNDAY....
