ha! This post is for Brian 'cause I just found out he's stalking my blog. I wonder if he read the post I did about him??? Hmmmm. Anyhow I thought he'd enjoy this photo of Dad.
I am not sure why Dad's looking all grouchy. Perhaps he didn't want his photo taken in Lexi's adorable flower boots? Him and Mom went for a walk along our creek and this photo returned with them.
Yes, I see that I forgot my date on my page, which was the whole point of putting that sticker there that says...date! The funny part is that this photo was taken right after Christmas....and I used Valentiney paper.
Anyhow, this page was created so I could play along with a challenge at Once Upon a.....Sketch. The criteria was:
February 1st Challenge
Journaling Criteria/theme: LOVE
February 14th is Valentines Day here in Australia and in many parts of the world. For this challenge we would like you to create a project about the one MALE you love. And we do not mean just your partner or spouse. We mean any male in your life.
Ideas for journaling: You could journal about the love you have for your son, father, grandfather or a special person in your life or any pet.
And, here is their lovely sketch:
As tempting as it was to do another page about THE MAN, I couldn't take any more possible comments about layouts being cheesy. That left either my boy Luke or my Dad. Now Luke gets umptreen trillion pages made about his exploits. Dad is usually not in the spot light. Not 'cause he shouldn't be, but 'cause he is like THE MAN, just like the foundation upon which things get built. Every now and again he does something crazy like wear purple flower boots and just needs to be recognized!
Used some special blooms all fancy on this page. The first one is from Petaloo and my Scraptastic Feb. kit. The SECOND red metallic one, I know, you totally want. SORRY! Special one from Irini!! Isn't it fab!?
I should have used in on the challenge I did from her blog, Get Creative that I am sadly very very late for. BUT, I love the page I made! I'll post that up soon. Used up more of the Scraptastic Hearts A Flutter Kit that I see is still on sale if you'd like one yourself on this page.
AND, look at those leaves!! Love them so much! Thanks so much Helen! You are a gem!!!
And, would you please leave my Dad some love on those boots! He is stylin!
