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 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!
