Scrapping About Daddy & Dad
So far, I've created three layouts with this kit. This first one showcases a favorite photo of my Daddy with the three of us girls all on his bicycle - I think I'm about three-years-old in this photo.
Next I used a 12x12 die cut paper to create a layout with a couple of photos of Robbie's Dad.
This last layout is a connections layout, one that combines photos from different times and incorporates a story over time. I put two silhouette photos of my Daddy together a while back with the idea that I would scrap them together and tell how Daddy's always willing to BBQ, even when we "volunteer" him. When I saw this embellishment in the Garage Days Collection, I knew it was time to complete this layout.
All the papers are from the kit, however I also added a journal card and two photo mats from the We R Memory Keepers Chalkboard Albums Made Easy kit.
And just because Jacky's been using her chevron punch lately, I was inspired to pull mine out and use it along with a strip of washi tape on this layout!
I've got one more layout idea and quite a few cards I want to create with this kit, so watch for those soon! Have you scrapped about your daddy lately?
