Happy Belated Father's Day!

Yesterday, although happy for some, was not so much for us... cos we had no Daddy to share it with. James flew out for his second swing on Thursday morning. We celebrated Father's Day on Wednesday with breakfast and presents, instead. I best get used it to it... I've already consulted the calendar to find that the only things he is here for over the next 12 months is Halloween and New Years. He's not even got time off for our wedding yet!!! Not sure I can get married on my own! LOL!

Anyway, I did have two Dads to spoil on Father's Day - my own and my Father-In-Law. For each of them I cooked some spiced mixed nuts and packaged them in a jar that was made to co-ordinate with their card;

Numbers Father's Day Card
Cardstock - Bazzill, Patterned paper - LYB, Stamp - Unity, Ink - Tsukineko, Buttons - craft supply, Twine - Papertrey Ink, Font - Clarendon.

Stars Father's Day Card
Cardstock - Bazzill, Patterned paper - October Afternoon, Corner rounder - WRMK, Chipboard stars - Collections, Ink - Tsukineko, Buttons - craft supply, Twine - Papertrey Ink, Font - Clarendon.

My Dad in particlar loved the nuts... he wolfed down half the jar during the Carlton vs Swans game!!!

Mum and I dabbled in a bit of papercrafting while the boys watched the footy. Earlier in the week I had given in to the fact I was not going to have the time to come up with an entry for this week's Scrap That Ad challenge, but Ollie slept really well during our little crafting session and I actually managed to whip up a quick layout for the challenge! Mum helped me by taking an impromptu photo for the page, which had to include a framme (or billboard). Here's my take;

Like I said, it was just a quick layout, nothing super special, but I was just so happy to have not missed a challenge!

I have another layout that I begun on Sunday and have almost completed, so I'll be back shortly to share it.

Until then, happy scrapping!

Lots of adjustment for your family over the next few months by the sounds of it Chloe :(.

It's hard but you learn to work around it. I hope you are coping ok with all the changes. I'm sure you will work out the details for the wedding

Bummer that James was away on the day but at least you still celebrated early together! Love the cards Chloe and your page is beautiful!

That page is so lovely - such a simple design but so effective! Love your card too.
