His photos inspire me! :):):)

Hi everyone! :)

This month I am guest designing for Flamingo Scraps! So excited about this as I loveeeeeee the girls over there! They are just AWESOME! So today I want to share my first layout that I made for my GDT stint over there! :):):):):):):):):):)

I made this using Crate's Portrait collection...and its all about my Dad and his keen eye for photography...even before digital, he has the eye for it! Love my Dad's photos! :):):):):):):):):):)





 My title reads: “His photos inspire me.” And my journaling reads: “No digital camera, no DSLR, no photoshop, no fancy editing programs – period. My Dad didn’t need any of that to make beautiful photos, he just made them. He has the eye for this – and for this I truly admire him. Eli Reeves – 10/1970”




And today is Thursday, so I also wanted to share my latest layout I made for Sketchy Thursdays! :):):):):):):)

Here is our sketch this week :)


And here is my take on it... everything I used came from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com :)







Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :):):)

  1. Yeah, your Dad's photos ARE good. You either have a flair for it, or you don't. And you need to develop the flair - looks like he has! Love your layout - will be checking Flamingo out!

  4. Hey Girlfriend,

    Great photo's from your dad, and cool to honor them this way. I, too, have photo's my dad took when I was a teenager, and I treasure them greatly.

    Love, love, love that paper in your second layout, and I just got some the other day.

    Have a great day sweetie,
    Meri

  20. Hard to believe your dad was using one of those older cameras, the pics are gorgeous, I love how you layered the photos, this is ingenious, I am so going to try this, the frame on top to highlight the flower is just gorgeous, I love Brookie with a curl in her hair, and those papers are just beautiful, so are the handmade flowers.

  22. Beautiful layouts as always gorgeous girl. We are flying out of Australia on the 29th October which will put us in LA on the 29th Oct (lol). We do not get our accommodation confirmation until about two weeks before we leave but I am guessing that we will be staying in Anaheim. So exciting................ We depart LA on the 5th November, wish we were staying for longer but you cannot be choosy when you are being given such an amazing gift
