Last year on my stepfather's birthday, his son David posted this picture of his dad on Facebook.  I couldn't resist saving the photo to make a scrapbook page.

My stepfather when he was a young boy

For this layout I used 7 Dots Studio paper from their Dreamscapes collection.

7 Dots Studio
Dreamscapes - 9mm
7 Dots Studio
Dreamscapes - Sunrise
7 Dots Studio
Dreamscapes - Narwhal

These are the dies I used:

Astoria Decorative Elements
Cheery Lynn Designs
Carnivale Border

These are the chipboard pieces I used:

Dusty Attic
Scroll #8
Dusty Attic

Blue Fern Studios
Mixed Chains

I sealed the scrolls with clear gesso and applied Picket Fence Distress Crackle paint.  I then inked around the edges with brown ink.

I heat-embossed the Mixed Chains piece with Antique Linen Distress Embossing Powder.

The music chipboard was heat-embossed with Aged Black Stampendous Embossing Enamel.

Thank you so much for taking a look!


  1. Love his outfit and how his hat is angled. The music score chipboard was perfect for the photo! Very nice layout Tracy.

  2. Beautiful layout Tracy. What a cool photo - love the hat. You did a great job of pairing this photo with the paper selection and I really like the embossing you did on the music piece from Dusty Attic.
