Scrappy Tuesday - Dad's 80th

Hello Peeps

It is Tuesday so we know what that means don't we?  Scrappy Tuesday.  Well, if you have been on my blog in recent months.  No reason as to why I show you my layouts on a Tuesday, no challenge, just one of those things I thought would be a good idea.  Sometimes we need to have a lickle structure in our lives! 

Tonight I thought I would show you a layout which I completed at the Scrapbus Crop last month.  This layout used some of my favourite papers,My Minds Eye, and the Special Day was my Daddy's 80th Birthday last year.  The chocolate cake I made for him and the Womble has been used on cakes in our family for a very long time.  Must remember to get him back! 

We gutted, distressed, cut out, raised, stamped, die cut and generally grunged to create this layout.  As usual mine is not exactly the same as the instructions as I added my lickle touch to the flowers, extra layers and different colour ways used as well as threading the buttons.  Not keen on "empty" buttons.

Hope you like this layout as much as I do.  I will treasure the photo for ever!  I have printed it in black and white as sometimes this looks better than colour.  Don't know why but they do!

Let me know you have been by leaving me a comment.  Gotta love comments.

I love this picture of your Dad. Very masculine layout but also pretty. Your colors and embellies go quite well together.
