There was a scraplift challenge on Paper Issues using letters or numbers in the background. This meant I got to use some of the vintage kit I've had.
The background paper is busy, but I'm so glad I could use it.
I also added ribbon, button, cog, cork hearts ,camera and finished off a border strip pack as well.
The father in this photo is my cousin.
After searching around, I found this tropical themed layout by Sue Plumb on her blog.
She is on the Cocoa Vanilla DT so I can't expect my scraplift to be as good.
I used the basic arrangement of photo, papers and embellishments as a springboard to my own layout.
I had several "tropical" items that matched with my photo of sunset in Hawaii last year.
In the following close up you will notice that I have layered 2 cards, one said hello sunshine and the other says awesome. As this was sunset, it wasn't hello sunshine, but goodbye.
It certainly was a gorgeous view.
Over at the Male Room the challenge is to use an unexpected item.
In my kit I put a large felt star which was originally a Christmas tree ornament.
As the background paper features stars, I have decided to add it to this card.
This is another Father's Day card to go in the box to sell.
