|(Page 9: Hanging Out) The metal sticker is from a children themed set (dollar store) and the "inseparable" sticker is from a set that was used a few times in my Mom's album. The chunky wooden accent adds a playful feel.|
|(Page 10: Hanging Out More) The "happiness" sticker is from the same set as "inseparable" and the wooden moon pairs with the happy little star on Page 9.|
|(Page 11: My First Car) I decided to journal on this page because there is quite the story behind this car. I love the pink paw print brads!|
|(Page 12: Being Silly At Christmas) Forever the comedian! I chose yellow gingham ribbon and yellow cardstock to tie in with his hat. My Dad is too funny!|
|(Page 13: The Handshake) Since the colors are fairly dark in this photo I decided to go crazy with funky patterns. My go to masculine embellishment for attaching is always staples.|
|(Page 14: Daddy's Little Girl) I played up the "little girl" theme with shades of pink, flower brads (Doodlebug) and pretty ribbon.|
|(Page 15: Christmas) Dimensional stickers and a dollar store paperclip. Do I shop at the dollar store too much?|
|(Page 16: Air Show and Military Appreciation Day) Red accents and ribbon trim kept up the Support Our Troops theme here.|
|(Page 17: Dad's Racecar In A Show) Another opportunity to use my racing paper, I jazzed it up with paw print stickers, a hi-lighter and a brad.|
|(Page 18: Military Career, so far) I wanted to end each album with the same picture to maintain consistency. It was also a second chance to re purpose more of the military accents I had. Tokens from Tim Holtz and chain from my first set of dog tags.|
I wanted to begin and close each mini album with the same photos to show that the relationship I have with each of my parents is so important and that the bonds we have as a family are just as vital. These were possibly the best and most heartfelt gifts I have ever given my parents and they were very well received.
Thank you for stopping in to share these memories with me! I would love to hear your feedback on these projects!
Happy Scrapping! Candice
