Scrapbooking | Old Photo, New Papers

On a recent visit to Scrappin' Goodtime, I picked up two sheets of "Splatter" patterned paper from KaiserCraft's Scrap Studio Collection. As I flipped through my storage binder of old family photos, I found a black & white photo of my Mama and her brothers and sister that I knew would work great with the pink brick background.

I started with one full sheet for the background and several strips from the "B" side of the other piece of "Splatter" then added additional papers from my scrap bin as a base for the photo. Letter stickers for the title, a small line of journaling & some flowers from my stash completed this page.

I love the way these new papers highlight this old photo! What do you think?


  1. Very nice. The photo remains the focal point & what a treasure that photo is. Does your Mama remember the moment of that photo, things like why it was being taken, was there pushing & shoveling from the others, laughter before & after, who took the photo? When I look at old photos I always wonder those things.

  2. I think it's a great combination! Speaking of photos, is that a new one of you on the sidebar? It's a wonderful shot!

  3. Your papers and additions do indeed stet off the photo very nicely - I think the black helps to tie it all together. I love old photographs; I'm admiring those fringes and the hat and the pretty dresses. (And that is indeed a lovely picture of you).


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
