Grace's Memory Book - Mike and Grace

Creating pages for men I find quite difficult. Avoid the pink, flowery, pretty stuff and try to make is sort of masculine.

I wanted to use the Father paper like I did in Faith's memory book, but to try do it different. So used some grey cardstock from a stack and then ripped the paper to size. I then wet the edges and curled the edges and then distressed them. I did not want it straight on the page and it looked quite good at this angle. I placed the photo with edged ink on the page above the word "father", it makes so much sense to let the paper say it for you. I wanted to highlight the word father again, so found some little brown buttons and ran these underneath the word father. I had one little brown button left so used this as the centre of the large flower and large pearls in the smaller flowers. The pearls looked lonely so add some smaller ones just to tie it in.

Well better go tidy up before Matt gets home from work, as came straight in from a busy day and decided to relax and what better way my crafty friends than doing a little scrap booking.

Thanks for looking
