Here is the rest of my Dad’s album…
Lily’s page. Don’t you just love that photo!
I have used the Eyelet Border Punch with the 1/16 inch hole punch. The butterflies were punched with the Butterfly Punch that just recently retired from the Summer Mini Catalogue.
Paige’s page (wow, that’s a mouthful!!!)
I love the flower fusion on this page. In fact I love them so much I tend to not use them! I really need to use more from my supplies and not horde so much so this is a good first step.
The little Elephant is from “Wild about you”.
Bianca’s page. You may not really be able to tell from the size of this photo but Bianca has a gorgeous look on her face as she is gazing at her Poppy.
Fellow demonstrators may recognise the general look of this layout from one of the examples in one of our recent Impressions magazines. I’m also loving the buttons on the bottom left that I had to force myself to use (they were even harder to let go of than the Flower Fusion were!)
Zane’s page. I loved the colour combination on this page. The little bats and balls were from one of the “Family Favourites” sets and the little people are of course from “All in the Family”. The letters are stamped with Riding Hood Red and the “Big Deal Alphabet” stamp set.
This is a page of fun photos, which mostly go to show that my father has never learned that my mother will always have a camera handy (even before the days of mobile photos with inbuilt cameras!)
This is a page showcasing some recent events that have been noteworthy, building their own home and a vege garden that the Grandkids adore.
This is the last page of the album (phew!)
Dad has retired now, just a couple of days before his 60th birthday. We had a lovely dinner together to celebrate (as you can see in the photo).
I got such a thrill out of giving Dad this album. He sat down and read every word as soon as he received it. He loved having all these special photos together in the one album, and of course loved our words within each page. Capturing the kids and their thoughts has also enhanced the album, and added some humour as well.
If you are ever considering a similar album as a gift I would definitely recommend it.
Happy Stampin’ and Scrapbooking!
