Sweet Daddy Kisses

The theme this month is to scrap those special men in our lives and my girls LOVE their daddy and he happens to be an AMAZING father! These pictures of our youngest giving her daddy kisses melts my heart that I just had to scrap them!
Since I have two daughters who are the stars of my pages, I am not used to doing masculine pages and I tend to have to keep them simple since the more I add, the "girlier" it becomes! So to add a little fun to my layout, I decided to sew part of my title. It is easier to do, here's how:
Step 1: Use chipboard alpha's to trace out the word.
Step 2: Pierce holes along the pencil lines.
Step 3: Erase pencil lines.
Step 4: Hand stitch through holes.
For this layout I used the Artsy Urban and the Lydia collections. I also used the Chip Art Tool for my hearts (I am SO addicted to that tool). Have a GREAT day!
