Father's Day - Queen and Company

Morning.  Today I am sharing a layout on the Queen and Company blog.  I used the coolest Say Cheese Shaker kit to create a crossword puzzle.  Q&C has the most amazing bling and scrapbooking supplies.  If you LOVE to add small things or even shakers to your projects, head over to the Q&C website and check out what they have.  

OMG you have to take a close look at this photo!!!!

The Good Stuff - Fancy Pants

My husband and I have been married over 20 years and together over 24. This is us, early on in our dating period.  I stumbled across this photo just last week before Valentines day.  We look like such babies.  I wanted to document it with product, worthy of hanging on the wall.  I had just revived my new goodie box  from Fancy Pants and The Bright Side collection had the perfect colors.  

My mom gifted me tons of her buttons.  She even scrounged tons from her knitting group.  My step mother also gave me her mother's tin.  I can not tell you where these buttons came from, but I am certain they have a 20+ year story to tell too.  

I love when the product itself, offers you titles with in the collection.  I used 'the good stuff' as my easy title.  I used piece of a cut file from The Cut Shoppe - Blooming Bouquets.  It added a little more depth to the  floral clump.

Dental Work - Paper Issues

Traveling to Maine Nov. 2013, I turned around and saw Roman all up in Flo's mouth.  She was little, he was little and all I could think of was maybe one day, he will be a dentist.  To this day, this kid can do whatever she wants to that dog and she takes it.  Poor baby girl.

To document my layout, I used a Swag Bag from Paper Issues.  I played along with the challenge to use the Feb bag.  It has little bits and pieces of current product, that can be mixed and matched to create a project.  I just the bright yellow bag and trimmed it into a circle as a large sheet of paper.  Everything else you see is from the Swag Bag except the 12x12 paper and the title.  

Can you imagine if I didn't have a girl dog??  I would be out of luck with all the fun girl things.
