Father/dad-themed layouts...

Hello! It’s Jo here, extending a warm welcome to you all to my first post for It’s A Creative World. As it’s Father’s Day in the UK on Sunday, I thought I would take this opportunity to share some father/dad-themed layouts with you. I don’t know about you, but my children seem to get the lion’s share of my scrapping time, and I thought it would be appropriate to redress the balance a little, and scrap some of the many photos I have of my dad, and my daughters’ daddy! I haven’t done these as step-by-steps, as hopefully it’s fairly easy to see what I’ve done in each case, but there may be one that catches your eye and encourages you to go and scrap one of the men in your life! Layout 1 - my dad, my daughter:
my-dad,-my-daughter-3 Supplies: Bazzill Doodlebug cardstock, 1 sheet sugar cookie, 1 sheet cream puff; foolscap paper; Ki Memories ‘Pieces of Me’ rub-ons; orange and black Sakura Gelly Roll glaze pens; Cropadile Layout 2 - a father’s love – this layout was completed during a UK Scrappers cybercrop, and was from a class designed by Theresly, aka Shopperholic. Thanks to Theresly for permission to reproduce it here:
a-father's-love-1 Supplies: Deja Views Fresh Print patterned paper, Tangerine design; Bazzill Doodlebug cardstock, 1 sheet pumpkin seed, 1 sheet honeydew; Sue Dreamer letter stickers; Ki Memories rub-ons; embroidery thread; purple silk flowers; purple Bazzill brads Layout 3 - *funky dad!:
funky-dad-3 Supplies: Bazzill Doodlebug cardstock, 1 sheet lily white, 1 sheet swimming pool, 1 sheet buttercream; Sandylion Kelly Panacci patterned paper, 1 sheet Denim Daisies, 1 sheet Miniature Daisies – Vanilla; Poundland chipboard letters, inked with ColorBox dark brown chalk inkpad; Basic Grey Wholly Cow ‘summer’ rub-ons; Ki Memories ‘Pieces of Me’ rub-ons; EK success retro flower punches - Whale of a Punch, and mini punch; gold snaps; Cropadile Layout 4 - our daddy:
