Family Adventure - Challenge YOUrself #7

Check out the latest challenge at Challenge YOUrself.


Challenge YOUrself #7:  Oh Boy!
  Create a layout about YOU AND THE MALE(S) in your life.  
This could be your father, grandfather, husband, son, a furry family pet. {yes... we love our pets too}.
Remember to include YOU in the layout.


Since June contains Father's Day, I thought I would create a layout with my dad in it.  This is one of my favorite photos of us together.  We were at Kentucky Speedway not too long after my mom passed away.  He came to visit us at our new house and my boys were thrilled!

I used quite a bit of scraps on this LO.  It's kind of fun to look for pieces of papers that you don't have to trim or modify in any way.  For example, the star (which is really 1/2 a star) was just buried in the bottom of my scrap box... same with the orange strip.

A closer look...

The striped paper is the back of a sticker package.

I changed up my journal block a bit by adding some stamped words along with my handwriting.  I know not everyone likes their handwriting, so this is a creative way to add a bit of flair to it!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love the direction I get from using bits as is from my "junk" pile too. Great idea using the stamps in your journaling.
