Long time no post eh?! The rush back to school is, several weeks in, still the rush back to school. I have also been taking a little time off in my craftroom just to start to let things flow freely again. But, this one has been marinating in my head for a while so I wanted to see it through. My father's birthday is this week, and instead of the usual phone call or card I decided to scrapbook a few of my favorite pictures of him from my childhood. Because it's just a single page, I mounted it a shadow box that he can hang on his wall. I think he is really going to like this.
I started with this sketch from Sketch Savvy.
I know I tend to really load up pages, and my hope was that I could keep the embellishments to a minimum so as not to freak my Dad out by making it too girlie. I think I was successful. I added some bling but not so much as to detract from the overall design. Here is the final product:
