Dad, part one.

Hey there -
So, I've been holding back on posting recently, in part because I have lots of work-related work (instead of play-related work), but mostly because I'm not exactly sure who reads this little bloggie, and I wanted to make sure what I'm about to share didn't fall into the wrong hands!

Sound mysterious? Nah, not really. See, over the weekend, we had a little family surprise party for my Dad, whose birthday is later this month. I've been crafting up a storm, making a bunch of layouts to display at the party and such. I don't think Dad's actually aware that I have a blog, but just in case...I've waited until now!

Today, I'll share the layouts I made about a month ago at Scrappy Chic. First, a very recent set of photos:


This layout is about this past Father's Day. I took Dad to Greenfield Village for the annual Father's Day weekend car show. We've been a few times, but this time around it was just the two of us. We rode the train, fed some ducks, drank some beer, and looked at cars. Fun times.

The layout uses Jillibean Soup papers, AC Thickers, and some subtle stamping around the corners (I'm pretty sure the stamp is from My Mind's Eye's Lost and Found collection, but it's been awhile....).

Second:


Love this one. Dad's just so cute (and well-dressed!). It's a companion to the third layout in this post, which features my Mom on the same Christmas morning, and it uses the same goodies: Basic Grey Jovial paper and die-cuts, BG and CC letters, and a Making Memories buckle.

I hope you think Dad's cute, too, because I have 5 more layouts, plus an album! Let me know if you get bored.  :)

By the way, the party was a success! Once I edit those photos, I have a few gems to share, too. That's it for now! Back to the work-related work. :(

Have a great day!

PS: is Blogger being weird for anyone else? Oy, this took forever!

Yeah! Glad to hear the party went off well!!

And those layouts are awesomeness! Love the bright colors on the car one and the fun filmstrip paper.

And yes, your dad was pretty groovy in his time! Love how that Basic Grey paper totally goes with the retro theme!

I'm not sure who's cuter, you or your Dad! I love the papers... so jealous that you use them so well. The film strip is so fun and that is probably the prettiest Christmas paper I've ever seen! I can't wait to see the other layouts.
