Daddy's Girl

It's natural for a father and son to bond over subjects such as baseball, fishing and cars
...but there's something extra special between a daddy and his daughter!  
Being a daddy's girl myself, I can sense and appreciate the bond of my daughter and her elder prince :)  
I was so happy to see the Strong Collection from Authentique Paper come on the scene...
it's handsome, rugged and filled with amazing quotes and sentiments for boys and men of all ages. 
 I thought it the perfect backdrop for this photo of the last Daddy-Daughter Dance that these two attended:
Going with the 'circle' theme that I found in the Circles & Scallops Die Cut Paper,
 I cut a circle in half and then placed them at each side of the photo.  To those I added
various punch-out circles and even used a small round punch to cut of the centers of some.
 Create layers with Die Cut Mini Notes, Titles & Phrases and Hinges & Tabs...
there's so much to choose from in this collection...the hardest part is deciding just what to use!
 After the paper layering and title placement I start adding on the different embellishments and of
 course a little hand-stitching and machine-stitching.  I like to work in clusters of three around my
 photo(s) and carry those same elements throughout the page.  Textures like wood veneer, burlap, corrugated paper and canvas would make a perfect compliment to Strong.  
And don't forget Father's Day coming up soon...Strong has plenty of fantastic elements 
for creating those handmade Father's Day cards!
Have a wonderful, wonderful weekend!
