Father’s Day digi-scrapbooking style

Tonight’s post is going to be all about Father’s Day along with some Father’s Day digital scrapbooking pages to share.

My husband received some presents (including a pen holder made by our 3 year old at playgroup) and a cd from our daughters. Coffee and pancakes were served for breakfast in bed – and there are much less crumbs than having toast in bed!

After a quiet morning, we headed over to my parents along with one of my brother’s, wife and kids for a BBQ. It was a lovely warm and sunny afternoon, and the kids had a great time playing while the adults relaxed as much as was possible!

So here are a few of the digi-scrapped items I made

A card for my Dad

 

One for my husband

Kit used Pieces of my Heart

A gift for my Dad (printed out at 8×8 inch) – the photos may look suspiciously similar to those on my Dad’s card!

I used Gina’s gorgeous new kit My Favorite Things available at Weeds & Wildflower Designs.

and finally, a card I made for a friend, using this gorgeous photo of two adorable little boys.

Kit used Happy Garden by Weeds & Wildflowers.

I am aware it is not always Father’s Day every where in the world, so I would love it if you could leave a comment and let me know when it is with you, and how you spend today.

Finally, my Dad and Mum are passionate gardeners, and here are a few photos from their back garden from today. I did not inherit their “green fingers” but do benefit from their regular visits to rescue our plants and lawn.

photos missing – to be added again!

Finally, thanks to those who came to my rescue with some face painting links for our Church Fair. It was quite quiet during my alloted time, but I really enjoyed it! I also purchased a lovely pine mirror for the cottage for just £7.

Take care until the next time, when there will be more Paris pics (is that a threat or a promise….you decide!)

  1. Wow, your layouts are really great! In Norway we celebrate fathers day in November for some reason….

  2. Good job! With my husband out of town this weekend, we didn’t even remember the day. Oh well, his loss.

    It’s Father’s Day here too in the USA. We all went to church together, came home and grilled steaks on the grill. One of my daughters, her hubby, and her two children were also here. My two sons and foster son also enjoyed time with dad. After we ate dad opened his gifts. Now dad is sleeping and has been for almost 3 hours. When he wakes up he will take his two labs for a walk!
    I loved the pictures of your layouts. GREAT job! Also enjoyed seeing the flower garden as well. Fabulous!

  4. What beautiful LO’s and sounds like you had a wonderful Father’s Day.
    We celebrate Father’s Day in September here is Australia. My husband enjoys this because his birthday is in September and that means he gets two special days with presents! ROFL

    I love the scrap book pages! They are adorable. Your parents gardens are beautiful! Too bad you didn’t inherit the green thumb!

  6. WOWZERS… all your layouts are lovely! I’m just here for a few moments – folks leave in the a.m. (bittersweet) and I’m taking a few moments before hitting the hay (going to bed) I have to laugh at your parent’s ‘green fingers’… here we have ‘green thumbs’ which seems natural, but I think you would have a definate advantage with 4 digits over our one.

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Your cards a brilliant, I’ve never tried doing anything like this. The last one with the two children is just so cute.
    Your parent’s garden is so colourful, such lovely photos.

  9. Wow your scrapbook pages are SO good and I’m sure I’ve told you that countless times!

    We got to relax a little yesterday…but we had a small birthday party for my daughter also…so it was hard to TOTALLY relax…sounds like it was nice for you though! lol!

  10. Overwhelmed!

    Nice work! I love all the layouts. 🙂
