Creative Genealogy Scrapbooking #46...I'm so glad you're my DAD!

Buddy is down for his I am playing catch on the blog!!!  YEAH!!!

Rowena at Creative Genealogy Scrapbooking,  has another amazing sketch for you this week.  When I first saw it, thought...humm....I will stamp the circles on....but the realized I didn't have any circle stamps or circle punches.  So I really had to think.  So I ended up recreating the layout on the Cricut Studio Design and cut out the circles with the Cricut!! 

I wanted to keep the page simple and yet manly....and so I used Curtain Call Color Challenge, which worked really well in keeping the colors neutral and manly.  None of the colors over powered one another and the focus was still on the picture.

So now, I thought the hard part was over....YEAH right!!  Deciding on a title is always a challenge for me.  A picture can say so many things...and this picture of Patrick has so many memories to it, but I loved it for Buddy's album.  So I started going through my dashboard and saw that Verve Stamps was having a Project Parade and the theme was 'Something Old, Something New'.  I knew that I had an old set from Verve and a new one that I recently acquired and I did. 1) Father Figure...I love this stamp and I love the quote, so I cut the quote into strips and stamped it in between the circles, the title and subtitle all came from the same set. For the next stamp 2) Blue Skies, I used the scroll for the corner of the page.

There you have it!!! It was a lot of work putting this page together, but it sure was well worth it.  Everything came out just the way I wanted it to, too!!!  So here is the page, you've been hearing so much about!!!!

I will be entering this layout in the following challenges:
-The Shabby Tea Room: Week #27: Fresh Living
-Verve Stamp- Project Parade (Something Old, Something New)
-Curtian Call Color Challenge: {Act 47}

So I hope that I have inspired you in someway to give this weeks sketch challenge a try and I look forward to visiting your blog to see what you've created.
