Dad and Daughter scrapbook page

The picture here was taken on a typical Sunday morning. Everyone woke up late and then scrambled for bath etc. Me and Bhabhi were running around trying to get the kids ready and get the breakfast on table. And, Akshu was adamant that she wanted her nails painted. (Ha, girls!) I was getting irritated with her. That’s when Mr C stepped up to do the honours. Akshu calmed down immediately and they both got busy with the nail paint. I grabbed my faithful Android and stole the precious moment.

I may not tell him this very often, but I believe Mr C is a very good dad. He knows when to be strict and when to ease up. I admire that in him, try to learn that from him. I like how he is patient with our little Akshu. She is a very very stubborn baby at times. She quarrels with him a lot, but he – more often than not – is very kind and loving to her. I love how they both bond together. Just like dads and daughters should.

In our busy lives it’s simple pleasure like these that we treasure most, don’t we? That’s what I’ve tried to capture here. This photo makes my heart fill with love. I hope it shows through the page.

{I was watching “Legally Blonde” while making this page. I hope that does NOT show through.. :D}

Most of the things done here are made with paper and craft punches. I wanted to make a page without using stickers or ready made tags.

  • Only for the LOVe above I’ve used letter stickers but rest all are handmade by me.
  • The circles for the danglers are hand cut – I used a bottle cap to draw the circle and then cut it out with scissors.
  • The heart shape is made using a craft punch.
  • I used a thick colorful thread to braid the line for hanging L O V e alphabets. Pokes tiny holes into the paper and secured the ends of this braid behind the paper with a tape. All that will be hidden when I place my page onto the photo protector.
  • I had some jewelry findings left from the last time I made earrings. Used the jump rings from those to hang LOVe into the braid.
  • Used shape templates for cutting out the ellipse, wrote “Simple Pleasures” by hand using a Sharpie marker and then did the S and P with a glitter glue pen.
  • The pink tag is also cut using a shape template and the butterflies, leaves and flowers are all made with craft punches.

So, how do you like my work? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to drop a comment…

xoxo,
