Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all Dads!

Did a quickie mini album gift for Bud yesterday -- finished in 2 hours! I used a 6x6 accordion kit from All My Memories that I got as an exchange gift last Christmas (thanks Joanne!). It has a beautiful light blue leather-like cover, but the baby pink and baby blue papers that came with it were too sweet for my taste -- and obviously inappropriate for a Father's Day gift.

Still having an Elsie hang-over from the day before, I decided to doodle on everything to make it more fun and "now".

Now I realize even more why she's so popular. Doodling is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to make "old" paper designs look "current" again. After I doodled on them, the new Love Elsie embellies seemed to fit right in with the kit papers. Of course, my right hand now has additional calluses, but this is fun to do once in a while.

Except for the family pics, all photos were taken last Mother's Day at Heaven N Eggs, Eastwood (2nd flr). The family pics were taken outside at the Bedroom, right besdie Heaven N Eggs. The pictures turned out so great that I insisted on having breakfast there again today so we can get more pics!

galing naman ng doodles. Don't even know which ones are doodles and which ones are design ng paper.
