SUMMER FUN WITH G-45, Pages In Time, and Simply Scrapping Crafts
OOH LA LA! Some photos of my dad on holiday in France. Another lifetime, so long ago. Wish I had know him then. It was a Father's Day full of mixed emotions as I poured over old photos, looking for something to scrap for this sketch and challenge. I spent the weekend working on another one of my pile it on activities, joining in SSC's Fun In the Sun crop while working on the PIT Sketch of the Week. All I knew was that I wanted to use the Graphic45 On the Boardwalk paper collection for my combo challenge. I pulled out some photos of my mom from Lake Tishigan--that will be another layout for another day. I thought about photos of both my mom and dad on holiday, across the sea from each other. I finally decided on these photos of my dad.
It's hard to tell from the photo, but I built up the 2 squares, making them into twinchies. Also built up the label and the center circle in the sun. I put on the tag one of my vintage BINGO markers. It was red so I used my orange Zig writer to color over the red, and somehow miraculously it turned into the exact color of the G45 paper. To comply with the SSC recipe, I made sugar with Scattered Straw Distress Stickles applied to the sand in the graphic (right top) and the sun sticker, and found some glittery alphas. For the yellow lemon, I added a strip and sun from the BasicGrey June Bug sticker collection.
