A Father's Love 12 X 12 Scrapbook Page

This is going to be a short post as I am trying to get ready to drive to Vancouver, B.C. to load up my brother and his family.  I am so excited that they will moving to Lacombe!!  Life is just better with little kids around!  Of course the big kids too!

Here is a very quick and easy Rubbernecker Stamps scrapbook page.  I used more photos taken by Dirk Brouwer Photography of some of my favorite people.

I stamped Grunge Background #3 sku:618 with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink on the 12 x 12 turquoise base I stamped DAD with Book Antique Alphabet Set #1 sku:612 using Gathered Twigs on cream card stock and embossed them with clear embossing powder. I punched them out with the Curly Label Punch, sponged the edges with the same ink and layered them on turquoise 1-3/4" circles and sponged them with Memento Teal Zeal.  I layered the letters on a Spellbinders Nested Pennants and added and punched cream border and some Really Reasonable Ribbon Caribbean twine. Punched a heart out of Shimmery red card stock, added some twine and popped it up.

 I also sponged the edges of the 12 X12 paper with Teal Zeal. I stamped the Journal Bracket Heart Sku:603-03 several times on cream card stock with Teal Zeal, sponged the edges with Gathered Twig after punching a scalloped edge.  The little hearts were colored with a Memento Love Letter marker.   The sweet little sentiment in the corner is from the Discover Word Set sku:627-13.  I added some Ice White Viva Pearl Pen to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by and have a most fabulous day!
