Fathers Day Layout

This is the first layout I have made for a while. I was encouraged to enter into a challenge by a friend, so I decided to get the papers and photographs out and get scrapping!
The photograph was taken in February this year whilst we were on holiday on the Isle of Wight. Our cottage was yards from this pebble covered beach and it was an easy stroll along the seashore. The image captures my dad on an overcast day looking wistfully out to sea with DD in the background. I am lucky that I still share holidays with my parents and we all really relish the time we spend together as a family.
I finally used up some old 'pebble' paper but hubby says it just looks like a pile of potatoes at the bottom of my LO (what do you think stones or spuds???) I am going to add a tiny bit of journalling but the printed words at the top say 'my father, my family' and at the bottom 'devotion, the best time, thoughtful and fun', which sum up many aspects of my dad.
I would like to enter this lay out into the following:-
Creative Craft World Fathers Day challenge
One stitch at a time boys to men challenge
C.R.A.F.T Fathers Day Challenge


  1. That's lovely - if they are spuds then I have a pile of them from one of beaches on the Isle of Lewis on my kitchen windowsill LOL!

    Big hugs,
