{Music Man}

Here's a layout with an embellishment I had never used on a scrapbook page, until this one.
Yes, that is a real record!  The Paper Bakery July add-on kit actually has a vintage 45 as part of the kit. It was just perfect for these pics of my Dad in-law in high school. 

I wanted to use the record on the side of the layout, so I used a craft knife and a ruler to cut off several inches.  It took a few passes with the knife, but it cut right through! 

Oh, and remember a few months back I asked for prayers for my Mom in-law that had just been diagnosed with breast cancer.  Well, she was feeling good enough this past week to come visit for a few days! 
She is in between chemo treatments, so this was one of the weeks that she was feeling good. It was so nice to have them here!! There is still chemo and radiation to go, so prayers and positive thoughts are still appreciated. And yes, that's my Dad in-law that's on the record layout up there ;)

As always, thanks for stopping by!
