Happy father's day!

Good afternoon all, 

Hope you are all enjoying your day. Today is father's day and i am going to the inlaws today for lunch. My husband forgot completely that it was father's day today but he is lucky that i remembered. I made a scrapbook lay out in a frame for my father in law. He has not had the best of days these last few weeks as he was in a car accident. But he is recovering day by day and i thought i need to make something special. 

As the lay out had to go in a frame i could not make a lot of layers. On the lay out are his children with partners Dorita and George and Makis and moi. I picked an old picture from makis and me because we have put too much weight on the last few months. 

Here are some close ups of the details. I used a die-cut of marianne design for the bird cage and stamped a butterfly behind and colored it with copic

Because the lay out is in a frame i could not stick the "bling bling"on the page so i decided to 
put it on the glass. I don't think it can be seen very good on the picture.

I added a vintage cut stating " loving memories " and lace on each side of the page. 

I hope he likes it, obviously as a safe gift we also bought a shirt ( always safe)

I wish you all a very nice sunday. Dont forget my blog candy giveaway. I am happy to see that more people added themselves on THANK YOU!!
