Circa 1971

Have you all recovered from the surprise yesterday? I hope so, because wait...there's more!

Challenge number 2 from the Cybercrop over at Scrapsidaisy on the weekend was to create a layout about a father figure (which tied in nicely to Fathers Day on Sunday). While I was switching things around in my house the other day, I came across this photo tucked away behind something else in a photo frame.
It used to hang in our house many years ago...it's my husband with his Dad. A perfect photo for the challenge, don't you think?
I used a single piece of Echo Park paper called Fancy Floral from the "For the Record" collection pack, and kept the embellishments fairly simple. The real challenge came when I attempted the second part of the challenge...to create a card with the leftovers!

Since I only had one sheet of the paper (which I used), I had to resort to what was left in the paper pack "For the Record". I mimicked the look of the diecut label in the layout by adding a sticker...but had to use different colours as I had none of the originals left :)

I still have a couple of the challenges to go...but work is not leaving me with much time to complete them. Might have to pull another late night tonight :)
