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
