I had a double page sketch (from the Double Take workshop) that I wanted to use, and I was searching for photos in my storage binders. I wasn't really finding what I was looking for until I decided to just use one side of the sketch to create a one page layout.
I found three photos of Robbie's dad as a young man working as a radio announcer that I knew would be perfect for the sketch. I even had a business card of Dad's from that time! It's one of those pre-printed ones that someone then added Dad's name in with a typewriter.
I set to work trying to find the perfect papers. I found a great floral print for the background, and then Robbie commented that I should try to pull out the radio theme with my embellishments. I was racking my brain for what I had in my stash that would help with the radio theme when I remembered the stack of 45s I've been saving as potential pages for a mini-album. I was able to use that in place of the journaling block in the sketch.
I love the way this layout turned out! This photo doesn't really do it justice as it has such neat dimension and texture. The photos are attached to the black mats with photo corners, and the mats are popped up off the page with pop dots. I created a scalloped embellishment for the center of the record and even have a strip of musical notes washi tape (barely visible) running across the bottom of the photos.
Thanks for stopping by today so I could share this layout that just couldn't wait any longer!
