In Dads Shoes

I have been going through my photos and have recently found some of my husband as a child. So I scrapped them. This photo is from 1990. Jack was 3.

I am really happy with the way this came out seeing as I had no plan when I started. I just sat down among a pile of paper and went for it.

I used My Minds Eye- The Sweetest Thing for the background paper. The feather stickers are from American Crafts Soho Garden Collection. 

I love this little elephant from the Amy Tangerine Ready Set Go line and I have been itching to find him a home. I originally thought that I was going to use bright colors for this page but it just kind of came together in this Grey/Blue color scheme. 

The feather stickers added just enough color so that the photo didn't look out of place. The real feather was added in because it had been sitting on my craft mat for a week I thought it would soften the sticker a bit. 

I just love his picture. He is so ready to go. He's got he big shoes on and his hat. The I brought the Black I love you more sticker in to balance the black letters on the left side. 

So there it is "In Dads Shoes". Have you had a layout recently that went in the complete opposite direction than you thought it would? Let me know in the comments below. I'd love to hear from you. 


  1. Love how this turned out! I think every single layout I do goes in a direction I didn't envision it would. LOL!

  2. Great layout! I usually have a plan when I start to create, but I will change course in the middle of a layout if that's the way it goes. :)

  3. Great layout love the feather and elephant :)

  4. Love the layout, super cute pic!
    I usually use sketches or sketch an idea and then go from there, but I'm always game to change up my original plan :)

  5. Such a cute photo and I really love the colors you chose!


Leave me a comment. I Look foward to hearing from you.
