Father & Sons big catch

This is a layout I did last night.  I have been in a mess in my craft room so I have not been able to craft.  I finally just moved a bunch of stuff out of my way, grabbed the first picture I came across and got it on a layout.  I was needing to do something cause I was feeling lost not scrapping.  I also grabbed the closest paper to me and started laying it out.

I got the wood veneer "potty" people and since most of my scrapbooking is of my daughters I wondered how I would ever use all the boys ones (even though I do have grandsons).  So this was a perfect spot to use them.  I found the tag with "father" on it laying on my desk and since it is of my grandfather taking his sons fishing I thought it worked.  I used the wood arrow to point to the "father" (my grandfather).  I also had the flourish stickers laying around for years and decided to use them up.  I found thin black ribbon on my table and wrapped it around for a bit of texture.  I added some homemade enamel dots to either side (there are supposed to be three on either side but two fell off in transit to my office to photograph the layout in better light.  I will replace them tonight.).

I don't know if I am going to leave the word Father as the title or if I am going to add another title.

The journalling is not done yet because I'm waiting for my cousin to tell me who is who in the picture.  One of they older boys was her father.

I used mist spray droplets on the top left and bottom right.  They kinda soaked in but I like it.  Finally I added a fish just cause they were showing off their big catch for the day.

Feels good to get a layout done.  I'm still going to keep organizing but I must keep taking time to get some layouts done so I don't loose my mojo.

Thanks for watching.  Would love to hear your comments.


  1. This is awesome Lisa, I love seeing old pictures scrapped, so many memories and that is what this is all about. Keep on scrapping and maybe you will just use some of the things again laying around and have less to clean up and organize. :)

  2. Wonderful layout. The colors work so well with the photo. TFS.
