That's How He Rolls (Scoot)

While we were away I had a great opportunity to play with the new Echo Park Papers collection called Scoot which is available at S J Crafts.  It is aimed primarily at little boys but I ended up with a variety of projects which I'll be sharing over the next week (or you can see more of them sooner at the S J Crafts blog).

This first one uses both sides of the same paper which I mounted on a piece of cardstock that I didn't need (awful colour / damaged / whatever).  It gives everything stability and still maintains the 12x12 size.

I was really lucky to catch Louis's first roll over just before 4 months because I was trying to take a picture of him wearing a fireman's outfit, hence the fire engines in the papers being perfect here.  You can see how much more generic some of the B sides are with this ruled lines paper.

I used stickers from the collection with a few on pop dots for dimension and then added a few bits from my stash here and there.

This little guy is currently busy designing his own Lego world and eating us out of house and home.  I can hardly believe it's the same little chap in these photos.  At the time we had a 3 storey house and the only computer was in the top room so I used to lay him on the floor up there with a few toys while I tried to get 20 minutes of chat with my Open University friends.  Now of course I have a lap top and I am on it for long stretches at a time while I study / write / catch up with friends / blog / blog hop / scan Pinterest / make pretty things on my Silhouette / crop photos / check out Slimming World recipes / etc.  I wonder how I could cope now if I could only spend 2 x 20 minute bursts on the computer at the top of the house!

Tomorrow I'll be sharing something I created on black so please do come back and have a look at the rest of the projects over the next few days.

Bye for now


  1. I have a different wonder ..what life would have been like with the internet when my boy was little. I think that contact with the outside world would have been brilliant..seems like a lifetime ago now, that world without the internet!

    It's a lovely page - I really like the neat little banner on the right hand side, and those cute pics of course

  2. Gorgeous ... The brightness of the papers makes it such a happy & fun layout

  3. That is a great layout with gorgeous photos, the papers really are perfect for it x

  4. Lovely photos and a great title! How different things are now. We didn't have a PC until just before Sam started school! I would have loved a connection with the outside world while he was a baby and challenging toddler.

  5. I like the banner - I often wish I'd had digital camera and even better an iphone when my kids were little. So many things I could have photographed :)


Hi there! Thanks for leaving me a message! It always makes me smile when someone stops by and says hello :-)
