All About Dad's Blog Hop

Welcome to the All About Dads Blog Hop! We have gathered a talented group of crafters to share their projects with you for Father's Day. We hope that we are able to provide you with lots of great ideas for all the special men in your life.

If you have come from Jackie at, then you are in the right place. If you stumbled upon my blog and want to hop along, you can do so by starting at Jen's Blog at

Your next stop on our hop is Gina,

Don't forget to visit all of the stops to be eligible for the Cricut Cartridge A Child's Year.

So here is my all about dad's creation.   It features my dad with my niece and nephew.   In Polish grandfather is dziadek.   The kids call him dziadek and he call them the two of him his buddies.    I just love this picture of all of them.   My nephew is just so serious imitating my dad with his foot on the rock just like dziadek.  

Since this picture was taken at Easter I knew I wanted it to have a spring feel, but yet make it masculine some how.   So I pulled the Nature Walk stamp set from the last Occasions Mini and made a page with a vintage feel to it.   

Ingredients to make the page:
Stamp Sets:  Alphabet stamp set from a local craft store, Nature Walk
Ink:   Wild Wasabi, Marina Mist, Early Espresso
Paper:   Travel Journal Designer Series Paper, Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Accessories:  Pearls from a local craft store, Whisper White Satin Ribbon, Wild Wasabi buttons, Pretties
Tools:  Border Punch from a local craft store

What a lovely page. It does have a vintage look to it. And you know what? The picture shows a little boy and girl all dressed up for Easter. I love seeing children dressed up for the occasion. It's rare these days.
