Just me and my Dad and the Ducks

I love these pics of my Hubby and our son. They were taken on Fathers Day in 2005. The pond is on the Air Force Base near by. Tristan just looks so cute with that little yellow vest and the overalls. It was such a beautiful day. The ducks would not stop fallowing them around it was hilarious.


Top Left:
In this shot you can see the dimension of this LO. I really layered up and out. The other thing I would like you to notice. The strip of white is one piece of a card stock sticker boarder. I glittered it with yellow glitter glue and highlighted the lines with my gold Zig pen. The Sail boat is also a Card Stock Sticker that I used both the yellow and iridescent glitter glues on the sail and the star. You can see the scalloped boarder used behind all the PP and the smaller photo. I used the gold Zig pen to put dots in the center of each scallop and distressed the edge with a brown ink.
Bottom Left:
I this shot I would like you to notice the stitching I have done along the edge of the striped paper. This is my first time stitching on non cardstock and I would do it a bit differently next time... like pre punch the holes. I doodled on the Chipboard star also with the gold pen... that is my favorite pen You can only see it slightly but all the green dots with glitter glue and the golden color dots with the gold pen.
Bottom Right:
The flowers are slightly altered with coordinating glitter glue and buttons in the center are tied with the same thread used in the stitching. The buttons are dotted with gold form .... yup you guessed it ... my gold Zig pen. The frog and the stars are also a Card Stock sticker and his eyes have the irridecent glitter glue. The green grograin ribbon is actualy a paper scrap I have and I just cut the strip from it. I also added the tan sattin ribbon.
The title is a bunch of different letter and phrase stickers. I love the many different fonts and the way it was arranged.
