My Dad

This is a very dear layout to me. This is of my Dad and I who I lost 5 years ago. I have only ever been able to put one layout together of Dad.. too hard for me to do. I have had this favourite photo out of us on other paper and trying to work on it for 5 months now.. I have changed it around, changed the paper, cried, stopped, started… and this time I have put it together using the simply stunning Websters Pages Ladies and Gents collection. I love this collection and it seems to just flow for me. I still too forever putting it together but that was all the emotions going on too. Seems silly but that is our inner self I guess.
I have used the lovely Ladies and Gents Die Cut. I love these. They look so pretty. I have inked up the edges to give it more definition. I have cut out the cute as mirror off the Ladies and Gents Framed Beauty paper and a couple of the beautiful stickers they put out with each and every collection they design. I love the sweet words on these sticker pages. So many to use.

The background paper I have used is the Ladies and Gents Time of my life. This is super cute and I have have used a Martha Stewart punch for the edge using the blue side of this gorgeous paper. I love clusters in the corner using my2angels stash. I have sprayed up one of Tracys Gardenias using Tattered Angels Glimmer mist. I have used Coffee Shop Brown... covered a tag using some of the scrap paper and a Tim Holtz Love tag. And of course one of my favourite charms.. the crown. Love this! I have inked up the Scrapware Chipboard Antique Lowercase Alphas Mini.

I have inked these up too to give them the distressed aged look.. Seriously girls.. this range is so beautiful I have lots of scraps that I am going to make some delicious cards from so watch this space as I will be posting them soon.
Take care and have a fantastic weekend.
