Big Daddy | Creative Scrappers Blog Hop

Hi there! If you're looking for the Creative Scrappers blog hop, you are in the right place and if you are one of my friendly loyal visitors who is stumbling across this from my blog, today might be your lucky day!

I'm taking part in the Creative Scrappers blog hop. We will be showing off some of our favorite Creative Scrappers Sketches and Layouts and not only can you participate in our hop but you have a chance to win a Creative Scrappers ebook of Sketches "Creating with Sketches" by Kristine Davidson. 

I created this layout of my daughter and her grandfather aka my dad. We call him Big Daddy. That's what I called my dad's dad and since my dad is a Jr., it was most fitting that he be a Big Daddy too! Anyway, we found this fun crazy hair hat and gave it to him as part of his Father's Day gift. He and Rheagan had a great time playing with hats and I was lucky enough to capture a few of them with Instagram!

 

Supplies: Scrapbook Circle June 2012 Field Notes Kit: Crate Paper Story Teller Archives, Studio Calico Abroad Continental, Studio Calico Abroad Boarding Pass, My Mind's Eye Caroline Curious Planks, Simple Stories Documented Chevron, Echo Park This & That Numbers, Echo Park This & That 12 x 12 Alpha Stickers, Bella Blvd Teal Washi Tape, Jillibean Vacation Soup Label, 7 Gypsies Travel/Date Stickers, misc star punch, misc circle punch (3 sizes), Janome sewing machine, Imaginisce i-rock & glam rocks, Mr Hueys Mist in Bonny Blue & Calico, Bazzil Tape Runner, Zig black pen in .5mm.

Creative How To: I used Creative Scrappers sketch 187 by Kristine Davidson. I created 3 little stories on the page with layers of paper and embellishments. I strategically placed certain words, like "misdirected", "historic landmark" etc around the photos. I then misted over the papers, punched stars and 3 different size circles. I splattered them out on the page and when happy with where they landed for the most part, I on;y had to move a few of them around.

Journaling reads: A classic case of the sillies with Big Daddy on Father's Day 2011.
