From the other side of the World (Scoot)

How about something a bit different?  Baby photos scrapped on black!  I love how these Echo Park - Scoot papers pop against the black, just like they do on the mat.  

The beautiful mat in the photo was sent to us from a great aunt in New Zealand.  We've never met her but she has done a quilt each for the children and one for both of them.  This one for Louis arrived in time for his birth with a special place to record his details - its gorgeous!

I die cut the title on my Silhouette and made a messy stack out of left overs from the other projects.  I adore that harlequin paper.

I journalled around the edge in white gel pen, a technique I've been meaning to do on black for some time.  I added some little red cross stitches for a bit of extra dimension and a reference to the hard work Aunty Iris put into this wonderful keepsake.

If you want to see more lovely things from this kit then head over to S J Crafts blog and I'll be back in a short while with a much more girly layout.

Bye for now


  1. Oh that quilt is lovely. I really like white pen on black plus the layers really pop against it.
