He's a wonderful grandpa and I know how much he misses my kids so just a few days ago a light bulb went off. I belong to Club S.E.I. and one of the kits I had gotten recently was a scrapbook kit and the colors would be perfect for a guy! I got all the pictures, sat down and worked on it all weekend. I have to say, I am VERY happy with the way it came out and I cant wait to talk to my dad and hear what he thinks of it(he lives in CO, so I mailed it out today).
This is the front of the album. I went to JoAnns and bought some chipboard to spell out 'Papa'. I sponged the A's with Green Galore and used Mod Podge to affix DSP from To the Nines Specialty. I sanded the edges and then inked them with Basic Gray. The heart is sponged with Riding Hood Red.
When I finished the scrapbook I also went ahead and made a card for my dad. The base is Kraft and I used Versamark and a circle from the 'Smile' set to make the background of circles.
