you are the best

am i the only one who can't believe that May is nearly over?! it feels like it flew by in the blink of an eye....until i look at my calendar and see that we packed more into the past month than i thought humanly possible! June is stacking up to be a replica of May. we are so thankful that the month is full of fun activities. which means some photo opportunities and more memories to record.

i'm entering June with a bit of trepidation though. it was the month that landed me in the hospital only a year ago. my husband "celebrated" Father's Day by bringing our kids to visit me in the hospital. Aidan and Kiara had both made Father's Day gifts at school but refused to give them to Daddy until Mommy was home. i think he deserves to be greatly spoiled this year!

it had been a few years since i created a layout geared to Fathers. we had not done the colour BLUE yet, so i thought it was a fitting time.

i realize that not everyone wants to do a "dad" layout, so i also tried to keep it on the generic side. the kits will include some rub-ons with Father Quotes....but there are some quotes in the package that could apply to anyone that you admire.

Distress Paints are a new product on the shelves. i'm still learning how to use them as well. they are a bit different from other acrylic paints i've used. the May layout was quite intense - a surprise because it looked so simple. the techniques on the June layout will build on the techniques we used in the May layout class.

in class, we will talk about how to use the techniques we learned in the previous well as expanding on new techniques that the Distress Paints will allow us to do.

these letter stickers are so awesome!! i decided to create my title to look like the styles of quotes that i often see on Pinterest. i'm not sure what this style is called....chalkboard?

it has been ages since i got interactive on a layout. when i was creating my baby albums i had something like this on nearly every one. a perfect little mini album to add extra photos or journaling. sometimes we have photos of occasions that we love, but end up blurry when we print them. hidden photos are a simple way to highlight the excellent photos, but include those less than perfect photos without distracting from those lovely photos.

here is a view of the album open. i attached it so that it is secured to the layout, but i can still remove it from my layout to get a closer look.
