Life is Better with {my daughter and dad} In It!

I have committed scrap more photos of my kids with the important people in their lives instead of just them. I just don't want to take these times for granted.  So today, I'm showing you a page I created of my oldest daughter with her Big Daddy (grandfather). 

I just loved the blue diagonal striped vellum paper with the pre-stitched butterflies from the American Crafts My Girl collection! I just had to use it!

I simply layered it over the multi-striped paper from the same collection so that it covered 2/3 of the page. I added scalloped and striped borders to trim the seam.
I added a few fussy cut speech bubbles to help tell the story and embellished the lower 1/3 of the page.  Lastly, bits and pieces for layering. These two adore each other and now I have a layout to prove it. LOL.

Thanks for stopping by today. Now go on a get crafty, y'all!
