honoring my dad

The cool thing about this page is the large photo I used for the background.  It's actually printed on an 8x10 sheet of photo paper.  I edited it in MDS so from the blue dots to the black and tan stripes is all one photo.  I had been wanting to try this for awhile now, what I had seen done before was all digital and very cool but I wanted to try traditional, I'm glad I did.  I also  love the punch of blue color and my metal embellishments I have had since I got back into scrapbooking that I have been waiting to use on that one perfect project.
 This one I am happy with, see it's a challenge for me when I do masculine pages, flowers and ribbon are so much easier for me.  This one I am pleased with.

This month is die cuts at Scrap It Girl , I used a lot of Tim Holtz, I think in total 13 different die cuts.  Go check out Kim's Blog Scrap It Girl there are fun challenges and prizes to be won and check out the gallery for some inspiration.
