Echo Park: Bundle of Joy

Hello, Memory Bound Friends!

Echo Park's new collections:  Bundle of Joy: New Addition Boy and Bundle of Joy: New Addition Girl are perfect for any expecting parents, parents or grandparents! The soft cozy colors and prints would create a cuddly baby card, mini book or layout for any new little boy or girl!

You could say this is the sequel to Echo Park's first baby release, Bundle of Joy and why it may look familiar to you. This years collection "New Addition" is actually a set of new papers and embellishments that match and extend last year's collection! 
What a great idea!!
