Father's Day Love

I know Father's Day was quite a few months ago, but I still had not scrapped our photos from the day from 2010. Yes, I'm behind. Lucky for my husband we were back east for Father's Day. And he got his wish to see the Dodgers play the Red Sox at Fenway Park. It was a great day. We sports bar hopped before the game, waiting out a torrential downpour and had fun sitting by the Green Monster. It was a great day!


I used the Crush line from Bo Bunny, I thought it was perfect for a love layout! I used this August Page Maps sketch for my design:


As soon as I saw that strip at the bottom on the sketch, I knew I wanted to try rolling some paper. I have always wanted to do this paper technique and this was my lucky day.


Isn't that fun?? I loved it. I cut the paper into strips and then just rolled them up tight. I used some Helmar liquid adhesive to hold the end together and it worked great. Hopefully I will remember to do this again sometime!

Happy Wednesday everyone...thanks for stopping by!!
