This page was a lot of fun, lots of steps. I've always loved this picture of my son. He and dog get so rough, especially when she still had a lot of puppy in her.

Daddy's Bridge

I love making lay outs that incorporate a lot of techinques. For this one I used a Fiskars Slim Line punch for the notebook paper edge, a ribbon punch and a Martha Stewart checkerboard under the cars. Under the "pull" on the cardboard box is a button to push for the audio. I do not have the tech savy to load the clip. It is my son explaining what his dad does at the bridge. Maybe some day I soon I will figure it out.

McMillan, OK

I have done another heritage page with old photos from my dad. The photos required a lot of explanation so I expanded to a two page layout, then broke the journaling into columns to make it easier to read. I used Plantain Schoolbook for the title and Nifty Fifties for the embellishments. The papers are from Cosmo Cricket - Circa 1932 collection. The second from bottom background paper was torn all the way around, inked with a Tim Holtz Black Soot distress ink pad then lightly sprayed with water which blurs the edges. While still damp I turned up the edges to form a frame for the photos. I love doing this type of page and trying out different techniques.
